Harry Kane responds to Tottenham title talk

Defence - Spurs v Chelsea

The England striker says the top four is the ultimate goal but has not ruled out contention for top spot.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has stated that no one team looks likely to win the Premier League this season, with FourFourTwo reporting that the centre forward will start thinking about a title challenge if Spurs are still in the mix come January.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have started the new season in excellent form and are unbeaten in their last 12 domestic games.

The North London outfit face reigning champions and local rivals Chelsea today at White Hart Lane, with a 5-3 win on home soil earlier this year still fresh in the memory.

Kane was a chief protagonist that day and has been in excellent form for Spurs in recent weeks.

Although talk that a much-improved Tottenham outfit could well challenge for the title this season, the England international forward has stated that the top four and Champions League qualification remains the ultimate goal.

"The season’s wide open for anyone who can put a run together and take it by the scruff of the neck," FourFourTwo quote Kane as saying.

"But the main aim for us this season was to try and get top four.

"We’re obviously in a good position so far but come the New Year, if we’re still up there then we can start thinking about that."

Kane has scored three goals this week after netting a brace in the 4-1 win over West Ham last Sunday and grabbing the only strike of the game against Qarabag in the Europa League.

Spurs can move into the top four with a win today if other results go their way.
