Spurs vice captain Harry Kane has sent a note of warning to Premier League giants like Liverpool and City, saying that he and his teammates have what it takes to win the title in this 2020-21.
The Mourinho led side have turned things around after the team had a a terrible start to the season, they’ve won their last two outings which has lifted them up to sixth place.
Tottenham’s win over West Bromwich Albion earlier today lift Spurs to the top of the summit for at least some hours.
The most appealing finish the team has ever had in the PL era is a second place finish behind Chelsea in 2016-17, but Kane has sent words of warning to every other top side in the PL that they have everything it takes to fight for the league crown this time around.
“When you look at the ability of our squad, you would definitely say that we’ve got enough to win a title,” the striker told reporters ahead of Sunday’s game at the Hawthorns.
“But I’d also say that we’ve been close over the last four, five years and haven’t quite got over the line. So, it’s not as easy as just having a good squad – and winning a few games – to challenge for the title.
“But this is a season where I don’t think one team’s going to run away with it – like Liverpool last year. There’s going to be opportunities for other teams to put good runs together and get right up the table.
“We’ve got to make sure we don’t get carried away either. We know we’ve been playing well – and the last two games have been good for confidence, to grind out results and get ugly wins. That’s what we’re going to need.
“There have still been points dropped from winning positions. But so far so good. If we can win on the weekend, we’ll be around the top of the table going into that international break. We’d have taken that before the start of the season.”
The turn in fortunes has relive Jose Mourinho from the pressure at Spurs, after the north london side endured mixed fortunes since Jose Mourinho succeeded Mauricio Pochettino in 2019.
“It’s never easy for a manager to come in half way through a season and stamp his authority on a team,” Kane added.
“Especially with the lockdown as well. It’s been a difficult time. But since we’ve come back, we’ve signed some new players. We have a nice, big healthy squad and it allows Jose to stamp his identity on the team.
“It’s great to have the likes of Gareth [Bale] and Joe Hart, who’ve won the biggest trophies around the world, in the squad, on the pitch and in the dressing room.
“It’s a bonus to have a great team of leaders. That’s what we need to push all the way. We’ve a lot of experience and we tell each other how it is.
“We have a manager who does the same. It’s a long way to go but we’re feeling confident.”
