Harry Kane: Tottenham Hotspur's squad is good enough for a Champions League place

Tottenham Hotspur are unbeaten in their last nine Premier League matches.

Harry Kane has told Sky Sports that Tottenham Hotspur have the team to make it into the top four of the Premier League table.

Spurs have been chasing a Champions League place for a number of years, but they seem to perennially fall short of their target.

However, after a very impressive start to the season, optimism levels are beginning to rise at White Hart Lane, and Kane has belief in the ability of his teammates.

"There's still a long way to go, we've had our sights on top four for the last few years now but you've got to play well the whole season to achieve that," he said. "We've got the team to do it we just need to remain consistent and keep picking up results. We've got a lot of work from now until the end of the season, but we're excited about the way the league is shaping up."

If Tottenham are to make it into the top four, Kane’s form will be vital to them, as he carries so much of their goalscoring burden.

The 22-year-old is the only out-an-out striker in Spurs’ team, and Mauricio Pochettino will need him to be playing at the peak of his powers if his side are to keep pace with the Champions League chasers.

So far this season Kane has struggled for goals, but he did net a hat-trick in his most recent appearance against Bournemouth, and there are hopes that he can kick on after that stunning display.

If Kane can start finding the back of the net again, Spurs should be well placed, as they have the best defensive record of any side in England’s top-flight.
