Kane ready to stand and trade with Champions League heavyweights

Kane ready to stand and trade with Champions League heavyweights”

Kane opened his Premier League account for the season on Saturday with two goals in a 3-0 win over Everton.

Kane's opener against Everton was his 100th goal for Spurs - on his 169th appearance - and although he has earned plenty of individual recognition and awards, he is yet to lift a trophy as a Tottenham player.

"It's not important", laughed Pochettino.

Another failure in the Champions League would not be catastrophic but Spurs have ambitions to join Real and Dortmund in the European elite, and Harry Kane has suggested that the players will be using this season's Champions League campaign as a barometer of the club's progress under Pochettino.

"I would put Harry Kane in with Batistuta".

Do you ever have any question about anything you wish to ask and get answer?

"It is fantastic. It has been a insane few years and to get the 100th goal was awesome".

"Many of those I played with would have tried to claim they were shooting, not crossing, but Kane remained refreshingly honest". "He's a fantastic player and we will miss him". Beaten at Wembley by Bayern Munich in the 2013 Champions League final, Dortmund hope to make it another miserable night for Tottenham in their adopted home.

"It's 50-50 really. If you're in the Champions League you want to be playing the best teams". The manager gave Davinson Sanchez his debut in a three man defence and set his side out with a new look midfield diamond formation. "His movement, his finishing, he's a top striker".

"I'm very pleased and happy because it's important. But fortunately we have a fantastic squad and I'm sure whoever comes in will be ready to compete on the big stage", Kane said.

"I'm very pleased but now we move on, try to recover as soon as possible and try to be fit for Wednesday and our first Champions League game".

Sissoko has rarely impressed in his time at Tottenham but was an effective presence in a central midfield role.

That was Spurs' first time in the competition since Mauricio Pochettino took charge in 2014 and that could have been offered as an explanation for their disappointing performance.
