Kane: Ruthless Spurs are confident

Tottenham striker Harry Kane has revealed that they are brimming with confidence as they aim to catch Premier League leaders Chelsea.

Spurs thrashed Bournemouth 4-0 on Saturday to claim a record 12th consecutive home win and close the gap to Chelsea to four points with six games left.

Kane reached his 20th league goal of the season against the Cherries and was delighted with the ruthlessness the hosts showed.

"Every game we go into we are confident," he said, according to ESPN FC. "We are ruthless at the moment. Once we score one, we go to get that second and the third to kill the game.

"It's important we keep doing that, we've got some tough games coming up in the last six or so — Crystal Palace away, Arsenal, Manchester United.

"I think we feel as confident as we ever have done, we're moving in the right direction, and we'll try to win as many as we can on the run-in.

"Before the game, we said it is important to keep our momentum going, it doesn't matter what anyone else does, we just got to keep winning games. We don't want draws or to lose, anything to stop our momentum.

"Every game we go into now we have that mindset. We've got a big semifinal next weekend, so the games are coming thick and fast over the next month or so.

"We're feeling as good as we've ever done, mentally we are strong, and we're feeling ruthless at the minute, so once we go ahead we look to kill the game off."
