Harry Kane admits he is relishing the prospect of this weekend’s meeting with Chelsea and believes Tottenham have the ‘momentum’ ahead of a huge London derby clash.
Jose Mourinho will face his former side for the first time as Spurs manager on Sunday, in a fixture which could have huge implications for the top four and the race to secure Champions League qualification.
The North London side have been in strong form since Mourinho’s appointment last month and have won four of their five league fixtures since his arrival, closing the gap on fourth-placed Chelsea to just three points ahead of this weekend’s meeting.
By contrast Frank Lampard‘s Blues have wobbled of late, losing four of their past five Premier League fixtures, and Kane believes his side possess the momentum ahead of ‘the big one’ as their city rivals prepare to visit the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
”We have the momentum at the moment,” Kane told Evening Sport.
”But next weekend is the big one. If we can win that and push into the top four, then we have fixtures over the Christmas period that we feel we can definitely win.
“Whenever a new manager comes in, everyone’s ready, wants to work, wants to impress. But it’s important that we carry it on.”
“Even before Chelsea’s defeat on Saturday, we said it’s two important games. We knew how much it meant to win at Wolves and with Chelsea losing the day before it meant even more.”
