Harry Kane insists Tottenham derby win ‘means nothing’ without Burnley victory – Yalla Match

Tottenham Hotspur striker King Harry He hailed the 3-0 win over Arsenal as the best night at the club’s new stadium but knows it will have no effect unless they beat Burnley on Sunday.

Tottenham kept their Champions League hopes alive by beating their fierce rivals, and Kane, of course, led with two goals to take their tally to 13 in just 17 games in north London.

Son Heung Min He added a third goal to secure Tottenham’s move to within a point of Arsenal with two games remaining.

They have a chance of moving into fourth place if they can get three points against Claret on Sunday, but it won’t be an easy task given they play at 12pm on Sunday – the shortest possible round.

Although Kane happily enjoyed Thursday’s victory, which was played out in front of a court-record 62,027, he knows good work can be undone quickly.

Asked if it was the best night at Tottenham’s new stadium, he said: “I think so. There was a lot of anticipation before the game, during the week. The atmosphere was electrically charged from the start. The pressure was on us to fill in. And I think we handled that very well.

“We started the game well. Let’s try our luck. And then in the second half we controlled very well, especially with Sunday’s game as well. So yeah, a big win for us, but we’re looking forward to Sunday now.

“I think we showed our know-how, the know-how of the team. In a big game like this, at home, in our stadium, we knew we had to win, otherwise the Champions League was pretty much dead for us.

“So it was good to respond that way and show that we can play that way under that pressure. But, as I said, and as we know, it means nothing if we don’t go win Sunday now.

If Spurs get the job done against Burnley they will be able to watch Arsenal play their game at Newcastle on Monday night with their feet up, and while Kane says he doesn’t ‘pop the popcorn’ he thinks that’s advantage game. ahead of their rivals.

“Listen, there are still two games to play. It was important to win, of course. We play against them on Sunday, and they play on Monday night, so I think if we can win that, obviously we put a bit of pressure on them, when they have a tough game at Newcastle.

“But we can only control ourselves and what we can do. It’s clear that Burnley are fighting for the points themselves, so they’ll come here to make it difficult for us. We have to be prepared for this.

“I think I’d rather go first than second, of course. But we still have to go out and win. Otherwise, it makes it much easier for them.

“So if we can do that on Sunday it will make their game even more difficult on Monday night at Newcastle. We’ll see what happens.

“We’ll definitely be watching her. I don’t know if I’m going to pop the popcorn. Look, we have to do our job first on Sunday. And then of course I think a lot of us will be watching, and I hope we can do well for Newcastle.

Kane was already the king of North London, but his two goals saw him overtake Wayne Rooney as the man to score more Premier League goals against Arsenal.

He added: “I’m enjoying the game and looking forward to it all year. There’s something special about the North London Derby.

“Something with the fans, all over the club, everything about the game. Especially this one, it’s the first big game we’ve had in recent years where there’s been a lot of pressure, a lot of points to play in a big Champions League push. It’s great to be on top. »

While it was a glorious night for Tottenham, it was a painful night for Arsenal, who slipped to their biggest derby defeat in north London since 1983.

However, their first four hopes remain in their hands, and they know that if they win their last two games against Newcastle and Everton, they will be in the Champions League next season.

Skipper Martin Odegaard said: “I think we have everything in our hands. Winning the last two games is everything for us. That’s the only goal now. We don’t feel rushed. We go to Newcastle and play a good game, trying to win, of course. That’s all the focus now.
