Harry Kane speaks confidently ahead of the North London derby

Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal clash this weekend in a huge game for both sides.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has been speaking to the London Evening Standard ahead of this weekend’s huge North London derby.

Spurs are currently second in the Premier League, three points behind leaders Leicester City and three points ahead of third-placed Arsenal with 10 matches remaining. So as far as six-pointers go, this is about as big as it gets.

If Tottenham win they will put clear daylight between them and the Gunners, arguably making it a two-horse race between Mauricio Pochettino's side and the Foxes for the league crown.

And Kane is confident he and his teammates can bounce back after their 1-0 defeat to West Ham United on Wednesday evening.

“We can definitely beat Arsenal,” Kane told the Standard. “We feel we can beat any team in the league so we just have to put in a better performance than the one against West Ham. We’re confident.”

Kane will know it is up to him to score the goals against the Gunners, and after being shackled against the Hammers he will be chomping at the bit to do what he does best.

Tottenham are enjoying a wonderful campaign and having previously recovered well from slight setbacks they will be hoping to get one over their fierce rivals in a season-defining encounter.
