Kane reveals Tottenham targets include finishing above Arsenal

Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane has revealed targets for the rest of the season, both for himself individually and the team as a whole, with a goals landmark and a finish above Arsenal on the agenda, according to ESPN.

Kane has established himself in the Spurs team under Mauricio Pochettino, scoring 14 goals and regularly getting a place in the side ahead of Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor. Kane though doesn’t want to stop now, confirming he is eager to do more and help the club achieve what would be a popular finish ahead of the Gunners.

“The next target is 20 goals: obviously I’m on 14 now so it’s six more to go,” said Kane. “I’m just trying to do my best for the team and to get on the score sheet. I think I can do that, I’ve been given the chance this season and I’m moving in the right direction.

“I’ve been doing the right things at the minute but there’s still a long way and a lot of games to go this season, so hopefully I can keep playing and keep scoring,” he continued.

“Sometimes young English players that come through the ranks don’t always get the chance at the top level, but I’ve been fortunate to get this chance. It proves that you don’t always have to buy players, there are players that are home grown that are ready to prove themselves.

“I know how much it would mean to everyone around the club to finish above Arsenal. I wouldn’t really remember the last time Spurs finished above Arsenal if I’m honest, it’s been a long time and we’re trying to put that right this season.”

Spurs are currently level on points with their North London rivals but a place behind on goal difference, with Arsene Wenger’s side having a plus 9 record and Tottenham on minus 1. The sides meet for the second time this season on February 7 at White Hart Lane.
