England international Harry Kane has said that Tottenham Hotspur have an advantage over their league rivals as they make a late push for the Champions League places. The north London side are presently seven points behind the top four but the fifth spot could also assure them a Champions League berth, suppose Manchester City’s European ban is upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
They are currently only five points behind fifth-placed Manchester United at the moment and Kane feels the club have a good chance of making ground, given the club only need to focus on the league games without any other disturbances, he told: “From our point of view we are not in any of the other competitions so we have got nine games to concentrate on picking up as many points and try and get into the Champions League spots. So at least all our focus is going to be on one competition. It’s been a chance for me to get fit, it has been six months since I have played a game so I haven’t done that since I was about five years old.”
