April 26th, 2016
Spurs’ title challenge appears to be over after a 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion on Monday night, with Craig Dawson scoring a 73rd minute equaliser for the visitors.
Tottenham are now seven points behind Leicester City with just three games remaining and a victory for the Foxes at Old Trafford on Sunday would land them the Premier League title.
Harry Kane insists that his team need to keep fighting all the way to the line, with Spurs heading to Stamford Bridge on Monday night for what could effectively be a dead rubber should Sunday’s result go the way of Leicester.
Kane was unable to find the net against the Baggies, with the striker frustrated that his team couldn’t finish off their most recent opponents.
“We’ve got to put teams away,” Kane said. “We’ve had a few games like that this season where teams have come back to bite us. It’s disappointing. All we can do is move forwards and see what happens this weekend. We felt we did enough to win the game, especially in the first half. We had a lot of chances and had a couple come off the post. But that’s football.
“We’re becoming a very good team and teams below us want to come here and get a result,” Kane said. “They want to waste time, they want get into the referee, but that’s football. We’ve got to learn how to cope with that. We’re a young side and we’ve still got to learn.
“Maybe teams are trying to get under our skin. It seems everyone puts in 110% against us. But if you want to be a top team in this league, you have to be able to cope with that. We feel we are. We feel we have done well over the last few months coping with that. Monday was just one of those games. West Brom are a side that if you give them a chance and don’t put them to bed, they will come back to bite you.”
