Kane aiming to stop Chelsea juggernaut

NAIROBI, Kenya, Dec 30- Tottenham striker Harry Kane believes his side is capable of beating table-topping Chelsea when they lock horns at White Hart Lane next Wednesday.

Spurs recorded a 4-1 victory over Southampton on Wednesday evening to lift themselves three points clear of Manchester United in the Premier League standings, just one point behind fourth-placed Arsenal.

Their next assignment is a clash with Watford at Vicarage Road on New Year’s Day, but Kane is already looking ahead to next week’s highly-anticipated London derby.

“We are definitely capable of beating Chelsea,” the England international told reporters. “We are not going to think like [losing the match can end our title hopes]. We are here to try to stop that from happening.

“There are six strong teams in the running for the title. We are in the mix and all we can do is win games and see where it takes us.

“We can’t have too many off days. We have put together a good run now. We have won a few in a row and we need to keep winning. Chelsea have won 12 in a row. Hopefully we can put that run to a stop.

“We are focused on Watford first – to get another win there – but it is a big game against Chelsea and we don’t want to fall too far behind them. So whatever happens we have to try to win that game.

“We have to try to win every game and hope Chelsea and the teams above us drop points. We are going to keep fighting and pushing until the very end.”

The last meeting between Spurs and Chelsea ended in a 2-1 victory for Antonio Conte’s men, and Kane admits their rivals were the better team on the day.

However, he is hopeful their home ground advantage will give them the edge next week.

He added: “They had what it takes to beat us on the day. We need to try to change that at home and use our atmosphere at home.

“We have been very good at home this season and we have to try to take that confidence into the game.”

    It is indeed sad to hear the stories of the PEV victims. It is even more sad to hear of the way the ICC decided to conduct its investigations. Shoddy input gives shoddy output. It is as simple as that!!

    The investigators came, booked themselves in good hotels and assigned some criminals to buy witnesses while they enjoyed the Rift Valley beautiful scenes as they loved the sun in Kenya and the animal parks. They came to see this paradise called kenya at the expense of ICC funds and thought that later they could fix their mess with having fake, coached, and paid witnesses to testify and incriminate Uhuruto. Did I hear someone say “choices have consequences”…..
