Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane is confident he will be fit to face Manchester United on the opening day of the Premier League campaign on 8 August.

Kane, 21, enjoyed a breakout season last term, leading Tottenham's goal-scoring charts with 31 in all competitions.

While his form earned him international recognition and a call up to Roy Hodgson's senior England side, the striker was selected for the Three Lions' ill-fated Under-21 European Championship, where Gareth Southgate's boys were eliminated at the group stage.

Kane's involvement for his country prompted fears from Mauricio Pochettino over the youngster suffering from burnout as early as March this year.

But having returned to training later than the rest of his teammates, he is confident he will be ready for the trip to Old Trafford.

"I don't think I'll miss the start of the season, there is more than enough time to be ready," Kane told the FA's official website.

"Even though I am away, it is not always physically a problem as sometimes you need to get away mentally as well.

"I still keep myself fit and in shape, it isn't like I just let myself go, so I'll be ready for the start of the season for sure."

Kane's inclusion in the Under-21 ranks strengthened England's tag as one of the competition's favourites but their campaign ended in disaster after winning just one of their three group games.

However, the striker's hunger for silverware for both club and country has only grown since that disappointment.

"We all know, as a country, we want to be winning trophies, European Championships and World Cups as any country would," he concluded.

"That's always been my aim, to win trophies for club and country and that hasn't changed.

"We've got more than enough ability to be challenging for that and it's exciting times."
