Spurs have established themselves as genuine Premier League contenders following an awesome run of form, and after emerging from a testing bout with Watford to take all three points this weekend has given the north London side a further boost in their hopes of ending their long wait for the title.
Ahead of Sunday’s showdown with City, Spurs sit in second place, five points behind leaders Leicester City, and one ahead of the Citizens, who are fourth on 47 points.
Tottenham are currently level on points with Arsenal, but lead their arch rivals on goal difference, although the Gunners’ weekend triumph over Bournemouth may well reignite their title aspirations.
Speaking ahead of Sunday’s heavyweight bout, Kane has insisted that Tottenham are not afraid of City or any of their upcoming opponents as they edge towards the end of the campaign.
“We’ve been serious contenders all season – obviously moving up to second is a good thing, and the higher up we are the better,” Kane began, as reported by the Mirror.
“We have some tough away games coming up, but we don’t fear anyone. We’re happy to go up to Manchester City and play our football because we’re excited by the challenge,” continued the striker, who has scored 15 goals in 25 league games so far this season.
“And we know we can beat anyone in the League – and that’s the attitude we have to keep.
“City will want to put things right but we’re on a great run and we’re just looking forward to playing every week.”
