Harry Kane reveals verdict on huge Tottenham clash with Chelsea
By Emma Sanders
Harry Kane already has one eye on the massive Chelsea game in January and admits defeat could prove costly for his side in the race for the title.
Talking in the Evening Standard, Kane said he understands why people are saying a defeat would effectively end their hopes of winning the Premier League, but has said his team doesn’t think like that and will carry on working.
Kane also said it was important to maintain their good run of form and that it is up to them to end Chelsea’s incredible record of 12 straight victories.
“We have put together a good run. We’ve won a few in a row and we need to keep winning. Chelsea have won 12 in a row and hopefully we can put a stop to that run,” said Kane.
“It is a big game against Chelsea and we don’t want to fall too far behind them. We have to try to win the game. We are in the mix and all we can do is win games and see where it takes us.”

Tottenham’s next clash is against Watford on New Year’s Day and they will then take on Chelsea at White Hart Lane just three days later.
Chelsea are currently sitting top of the Premier League table and have been in sensational form since switching formation following a disappointing 3-0 defeat against Arsenal in September.
Spurs have won three of their last four fixtures and have rediscovered their goal-scoring touch, including four in their last game against Southampton on Wednesday evening.
The last time the two sides met in November, Chelsea ran out as 2-1 winners at Stamford Bridge.
Assuming Tottenham overcome Watford and Chelsea pick up all three points against Stoke on Saturday, a defeat for Spurs against the Blues would leave them 13 points off the top.
