Spurs to dom­i­nate North Lon­don, says Kane

New Straits Times - - Sport -

LON­DON: Harry Kane has warned Arse­nal that they had bet­ter get used to liv­ing in Tot­ten­ham’s shadow.

Spurs’ 2-0 win over their lo­cal ri­vals on Sun­day means they will fin­ish above the Gun­ners for the first time in 22 years.

And with Spurs due to move into their new sta­dium for the 2018-19 sea­son, they are quickly clos­ing the gap off the pitch, too.

“Ev­ery time we drive (to the sta­dium) as a squad we can see how big that new stand is get­ting,” said Kane. “It shows the way the club are go­ing. We’ve got one of the best man­agers in the world, a great squad and we have just got to keep build­ing.

“What­ever hap­pens this year, next year we have got to be even bet­ter.”

Man­ager Mauri­cio Po­chet­tino is likely to re­ject the chance to man­age Paris Saint-Ger­main to con­tinue the Spurs project and keep­ing his squad to­gether will be key to build­ing on this sea­son’s progress.

But the fu­ture of Kyle Walker is un­cer­tain as Manch­ester City grow in­creas­ingly con­fi­dent of land­ing the Eng­land right-back.

Kieran Trip­pier took the de­fender’s place for the FA Cup semi-fi­nal de­feat by Chelsea and Sun­day’s north Lon­don derby.

It is un­der­stood Po­chet­tino is will­ing to sac­ri­fice a reg­u­lar first­team player to gen­er­ate ex­tra trans­fer funds and for­mer City trainee Trip­pier, who is set to sign a new con­tract, looks a ready-made re­place­ment for Walker. Daily Mail
