Mauricio Pochettino's men have just six games to catch the leaders.

Harry Kane has insisted that Tottenham can still win the Premier League title this season despite Leicester City extending their lead at the top of the table to seven points over the weekend, The Sun reports.

Spurs went into the first game following the international break five points behind the Foxes, but after they could only draw with Liverpool, Claudio Ranieri's men's victory over Southampton saw the leaders arguably put one hand on the trophy with just six games to go.

Nevertheless, the 22-year-old admitted that he is still confident that Mauricio Pochettino's side can still catch the pace-setters and clinch their first league title for more than half a century when asked about their title hopes.

"Yes, of course. Anything can still happen," he told The Sun.

"Leicester would be doing very well to win every game from now until the end of the season.

"We have just got to do what we can and now we have got to focus on Man United."

While Spurs' hopes do look somewhat bleak - as they need Leicester to drop points in at least three of those remaining games to stand a chance - they have proved already this season that they can put together the kind of winning run that will be needed now.

From mid-January until the end of February, Pochettino's men won six league games in a row, so a repeat of that run would put pressure on the Foxes, who still need to face the likes of West Ham, Manchester United and Chelsea before they can start celebrating their fairytale season.
