Tottenham striker Harry Kane has revealed that his side were watching Arsenal's game against Leicester City before their kick-off against Manchester City at the Etihad, but were not too fussed about Danny Welbeck's last gasp winner which got Arsenal three crucial points in the title race. The former Manchester United man made his first appearance in a Gunners shirt after being out for over nine months due to injury, and his first major contribution since his return may prove pivotal in the title race.
Tottenham did their job later in the day, with Christian Eriksen's winner in the final minutes also taking three points against Manchester City, keeping them above Arsenal on goal difference. Kane notched up his 16th goal of the season with a well taken penalty after Raheem Sterling was contentiously punished for handling the ball in the box.
Kane revealed that they were not too overwhelmed with the result at the Emirates and realised that they need to keep winning games to close the gap at the top and win their first title since 1961.
"We were watching it," Kane said, as quoted by the Mirror. "But we weren't too fussed about who won or what the situation was. We were focused on our job and we knew we had to get the three points against Man City to keep us up there."
However, the 22-year-old fired a warning to the title challengers, stating that they are well and truly in the race and feel that they can beat anyone in the league and end their title drought, which would be a massive achievement given their lack of investment. It would also be the first time in over 20 years that Spurs would finish above Arsenal, having last achieved that feat in 1995, before Arsene Wenger's arrival.
"It's the best belief we have had at the club since I came here. Everyone is just fighting for each other. We're putting bodies on the line and we're all working towards the same goal," Kane said and added, "There's still a long way to go, but we feel we can beat anyone in the league and we just have to keep putting in performances like that, put teams away and see where we end up."
