Harry Kane hopes his return to form can inspire Tottenham for the rest of the season, including the League Cup final, after he helped Spurs to a 3-0 victory at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.
“I was on 18 [goals] for what felt like ages but I am very happy,” the 21-year-old said after goals in either half gave Spurs a sixth league win in eight matches, ending three weeks without a goal and took him to 20 for the season.
“Hopefully I can push on and get some more now. There is still a long way to go and I am really enjoying it at the minute. Hopefully I can continue. Twenty goals was my next target after I got 10 and I am happy to be there.”
Burnley manager Sean Dyche remained philosophical over his sides’ survival chances, despite a 2-0 defeat at Sunderland. A poor first-half showing was punished by goals from Connor Wickham and Jermain Defoe.
Dyche said: “We have been learning, we are improving. I always remind you that people thought we would need snookers at Christmas and we didn’t, and we are still active.”
QPR manager Harry Redknapp was similarly positive about their survival prospects, following an improved showing but all-too familiar defeat on their travels, 3-1 at Stoke.
“In the second half we battered away, but just couldn’t get the goal. I couldn’t have asked for more effort than they gave. I still think we’re capable of getting out of trouble.”
