Harry Kane says what he is finding hard to do at Tottenham
By Danny Wright
Harry Kane believes that he and his Tottenham teammates are finding it hard to do anything but take their Premier League title challenge by one game at a time.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men still stand a chance at being crowned champions with four games to play and Kane wants to crank up the pressure on Chelsea once more by beating West Ham on Friday night.
Spurs travel to the London Stadium knowing that they can move within a point of Chelsea, three days before they welcome struggling Middlesbrough to Stamford Bridge on Monday.
The 23-year-old has been firing on all cylinders for Tottenham this season, but admits that their chances of winning a maiden Premier League title are not in their hands.
“We keep going, it’s hard to do anything else. We can’t control what Chelsea do, we just have to keep winning our games,” said Kane, as quoted by the Daily Mail.

“We have another London derby on Friday night and hopefully we can win that, drop it down to one point and see what happens… We’re playing as well as we ever have done in the Premier League.”
The 17-times England international leads Tottenham’s goal scoring charts this season by netting 27 times in 34 appearances in all competitions.
Spurs still have to play Manchester United, Leicester and Hull in their remaining three fixtures but Chelsea have an arguably easier run-in with West Brom, Watford and Sunderland to play after their home clash with Boro.
Pochettino’s side have a slightly better goal difference than their title rivals and if they can keep that intact they would have to ensure the Chelsea lose and draw one of their remaining fixtures for them to win the title.
