Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has given his thoughts on his side's upcoming Champions League quarter-final tie with Manchester City.

Spurs overcame Borussia Dortmund in the last 16 by a 4-0 aggregate scoreline, a 3-0 hammering of the Bundesliga side at Wembley followed up by a professional 1-0 win at the Signal Iduna Park.

However, Friday's draw against the Premier League leaders prompted a fair bit of pessimistic reaction on Twitter, with some Tottenham fans suggesting that their Champions League journey would end at the hands of Pep Guardiola's side.

 

Speaking to the official Spurs website, Kane described the Citizens as "one of the best teams in Europe" but despite admitting that it'll be a tough task, he says he and his teammates believe they can get the job done.

“They’re going to be two great games,” he said. “Manchester City are obviously one of the best teams in Europe at the moment so it will be a great test for us. In the quarter-finals of the Champions League you have to expect to play tough teams though, so we will be ready for it.”

When asked about whether he thinks they can beat City over two legs, he replied: “Yes. We have to believe in our ability. It will be tough but it’s a chance to get to a Champions League semi-final so we will give it everything.”

Some Spurs fans had their say on their 24-goal talisman's comments on Twitter, with reaction pretty much split down the middle between optimism and pessimism:

The quarter-final first-leg could potentially be one of Tottenham's first games at their new stadium on 9 April, before the return leg at the Etihad Stadium on 17 April.
