Harry Kane has warned north London rivals Arsenal and every other title contender that they are not scared of any of them.
Tottenham face Arsenal today in a north London derby – probably the biggest in recent years – with his Tottenham team second in the Premier League and Arsenal in third three points below, the 178th North London derby is being billed as the most crucial for years.
There will not only be bragging rights up for grabs this time, but possibly the title.
Both sides slipped up in midweek as Spurs blew the chance to go top by losing 1-0 at West Ham, and Arsenal suffered an even more surprising defeat as they crashed 2-1 at home to struggling Swansea.
But Kane denied Tottenham’s bid to win their first top-flight title since 1961 is going off the rails.
The England star, 22, said: “At the start of the season, it was just to be trying to get into the top four.
“Now that we’re close, it’s just about taking each game as it comes and seeing what happens.
“We still feel we can beat anyone in the league and we’ve been showing that in the last few weeks.
“We don’t fear anyone. We know what we’ve got to do against Arsenal — pick up three points.”
Tottenham have been in the shadow of Arsenal for so long. But today Kane and his team-mates have the chance to hammer a nail into their rivals’ title challenge.
A win for Spurs would leave the Gunners six points behind them with just nine matches to play.
Kane added: “Obviously the teams around us, the more they lose and the more we win, it’s going to be better for us.
“Whether it’s Arsenal, Man City or Leicester dropping points — we know what we’ve got to do. We’ve got to keep winning games.”
