Harry Kane believes Tottenham’s title ambitions could be boosted rather than hindered by playing last every weekend.
Claudio Ranieri’s side dropped points on Sunday for the first time since March 1 and Mauricio Pochettino’s men capitalised 24 hours later, making light work of the increased scrutiny and a supposedly tricky trip to Stoke.
Spurs were 4-0 winners at the Britannia Stadium and Kane reckons it could have been six on another day, with the in-form striker calling it a “fantastic night” as they cut the Foxes’ cushion to five points.
The north London outfit will continue to play after Leicester until the season finale – something that sharpened the mind as they began an unusual run of three straight Monday matches.
“The lads have been itching to play,” Kane said. “Watching all the football over the weekend, and having to wait until Monday night to play, gets you ready, gets you firing.
“Watching the games, it was a chance for us to gain some points and we’ve gone out there and showed what we’re capable of.”
Kane is confident Spurs will push Leicester all the way, given the fixtures Leicester face – home games against Swansea and Everton, and trips to Manchester United and Chelsea.
“With more performances like that, I’m sure we’ll push them all the way,” he added. “All we can do is keep doing what we’re doing. We’ve got to win all our games.
“We want to win all four of them and then we will go from there. Obviously Leicester have got some tough games coming up.
“They’re in the driving seat. All we can do is keep winning our games.”
