Tottenham Hotspur star striker Harry Kane has claimed that his side will finish in the top four of the Premier League this season.

The north Londoners Spurs moved into the top four position with a 2-0 win over Southampton on Saturday.

With the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Everton all losing points with regularity this campaign, and the league’s underdogs such as Leicester, Watford and Crystal Palace reaching at top high.

However, the England international Kane believes that his side have a great opportunity to return to Champions League competition next year.

“It’s a very big opportunity. A lot of teams are getting unexpected results. We have to keep our heads down and keep working hard. There’s a long way to go and a lot of tough games. But we are full of confidence. We had a disappointing result last week but we’ve come straight back with a good three points away from home,” the 22-year-old told reporters.

“Now it’s about winning over the Christmas period and really pushing up that league. It is, obviously [a psychological boost to reach the top four]. We hadn’t won in three games, we’d drawn a couple before. It was a ‘must-win’ game for us. The players knew that; 2-0 away from home at Southampton is a very good result.

“[Last week’s 2-1 defeat by] Newcastle was probably the kick up the butt we needed. We had drawn a couple of games. Maybe we were getting a bit complacent. That maybe woke us up a bit. We definitely won’t be doing that against Norwich. They have had a good result away from home against United. They will be full of confidence.”
