Spurs striker Kane: Channeling all our attention on the England top flight could work in our favour.

England captain Harry Kane believes Tottenham Hotspur will benefit from focusing solely on the Premier League.

Harry Kane says Tottenham can now focus on the Premier League since they are no longer in any other competition.

Jose Mourinho’s Lilywhites sit on the eighth spot in the English top flight, seven points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, and have nine games to try and force their way into the Champions League places.

With Spurs’ top-four rivals Manchester United, Chelsea, Wolves and Sheffield United all involved in other cup competitions, Kane, 26, reckons it could work in their favour.

While speaking to Sky Sports, Kane said: "From our point of view we are not in any of the other competitions so we have got nine games to concentrate on picking up as many points and try and get into the Champions League spots.

"So at least all our focus is going to be on one competition."

Kane is delighted to return to action after six months on the sidelines due to a serious hamstring injury.

He added: "It feels like a pre-season, it has been good so far. I was doing individual training for a while and almost got to a stage where I was back with the team and then we had to stay at home.

"It's been a chance for me to get fit, it has been six months since I have played a game so I haven't done that since I was about five years old."

Spurs‘ first game following the COVID-19 shutdown will be a home clash up against Manchester United on June 19.
