Harry Kane has said Tottenham Hotspur will finish in the top four if they continue to play like they did against Crystal Palace on Wednesday night.
Spurs ran out 2-0 winners in the first game at their new stadium thanks to second half goals from Son Heung-min and Christian Eriksen.
The result saw Mauricio Pochettino’s side leapfrog rivals Arsenal and return to third place in the Premier League.
But Champions League qualification is far from secured as Chelsea and Manchester United continue to nip at the heels of Tottenham.
Kane, who came close to finding the net on Wednesday, believes Spurs no longer have any excuses for failing to finish in the top four after moving into the new stadium.
“We feel like we have done well this season obviously with everything that has been going on,” Kane said (via the Guardian).
“There are no excuses now. We are here, we are home, and if we play like that we will be all right.”
Tottenham were completely dominant against Palace, who only really came alive in the final stages after going 2-0 down.
Kane and Lucas Moura both missed good opportunities to add to the hosts’ lead, but it was always going to be a cagey affair on an otherwise celebratory evening.
