Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane has taken a swipe at arch rivals Arsenal after the White Hart Lane outfit overtook the Gunners in the Premier League table. They are now in the third place level with Arsene Wenger's team on 45 points, but are ahead on goal difference.

The Emirates Stadium outfit started last month on top of the league table, but have faltered since the start of January and failed to win any of their last three Premier League matches taking just two points out of a possible nine. This has seen their arch rivals overtake them and Leicester City open up a five- point gap at the top.

Tottenham are one of the form teams in the English top-flight tournament at the moment having won three consecutive games. The England international forward is confident that the club can get higher up the table and has taunted Arsenal by stating that they are no longer worried about teams behind them on the table, as they set their sights on catching Manchester City and Leicester, who are two and five points ahead respectively.

"The higher we can go the better it is. We're not really looking behind us, we're looking forward," the England striker said, as quoted by ESPN FC.

"That's what's been different from other seasons. When we were [previously] maybe trying to hang on to fourth or hang on to fifth, now we're third and we're trying to get as far up the league as we can. We're not worried about the teams behind us."

"We're playing very well and confidence is probably as high as it's been all season. It's one game at a time but we feel we can beat anyone. That's our mentality, that's what the manager has given us, and that's what we have to take into the rest of the season," the English forward explained.

"I don't think there's a team in the league who will be looking forward to facing us and in the remainder of the season we're confident going into every game, and that's what we've got to keep.

"There will probably be ups and downs along the way but we have to stay focused and keep doing what we're doing," the Spurs star added.
