Harry Kane makes revelation that West Ham fans will love
By Harry Sykes
Harry Kane has revealed that he wants West Ham to beat Chelsea in Monday night’s London derby.
The Tottenham talisman admitted who he will be cheering on after his side kept the title race alive with a 3-2 Premier League win over Everton on Sunday.
A Kane double and a late Dele Alli strike was enough to secure the three points for Mauricio Pochettino’s side and maintain some pressure on Chelsea.
Antonio Conte’s runaway leaders are seven points clear at the league summit and head to the London Stadium to face West Ham aiming to extend the gap to 10.
Kane gave his verdict on the title race after Tottenham lifted their points tally for the season to 56 from 27 league matches.

“It’s an important win, we should have won by more but it’s another step closer to the top of the table,” said Kane, as quoted by the BBC Sport live match blog (Sunday, 3.38pm).
“We want West Ham to win against Chelsea tomorrow, we don’t normally say that.”
Hammers fans will love the endorsement from Kane, given that he is the talisman of their bitter rivals and there is little love lost between the two clubs.
Kane’s double against Everton on Sunday took him to the top of the Premier League scoring charts with 19 goals from 22 matches.
He is on course to win the Golden Boot for the second consecutive season after netting 25 league goals last season to finish above closest challenger Jamie Vardy.
Alli has also been prolific from his attacking midfield position, netting 15 goals in all competitions, 13 of which have come in the English top flight.
