Tottenham Hotspur have already qualified to the knock-out stages of the Champions league as group winners, with one game to spare.

Spurs ace Harry Kane spoke to reporters regarding his side's impressive form in the Champions League this season, and highlighted how confidence has played a big part in their rise to prominence on the continent - something that certainly was't there last season, as quoted by popular football news website Football.London.

Tottenham have come on leaps and bounds since Mauricio Pochettino took the reigns in May 2014, but they still get levelled with the accusation that they do not turn up in big games.

Many pundits have also shared their belief that the Lilywhites cannot be classed as a truly great side until they actually win something, and with 11 points currently separating both them and league leaders Manchester City, Europe's premier competition might actually represent their best chance of silverware this season.

Kane spoke to reporters about how he and his teammates no longer fear squaring up against some of the continent's biggest and most elite sides, as quoted by Football.London:

"When you beat Borussia Dortmund at home and then draw at Real Madrid and beat them at home you come away thinking: This Champions League is not so scary. We went to Dortmund two years ago and got battered. It wasn't a game we looked forward to then. But now when you are competing with and beating these big clubs in Europe you tend to look forward more to playing them. You want to play in big stadiums against big clubs when you know you can do well."

Next up for Spurs is a home game against West Brom in the Premier League at Wembley on Saturday, and three points will be an absolute must, if they are to keep the pressure up on those above them in the table.
