Harry Kane Speaks On What Tottenham Must Do To Finish 4th Ahead Of Arsenal. Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane believes his team must not lose any more games in order to finish in the top four ahead of Arsenal.
Spurs have dropped points on their past two Premier League games, falling 1-0 at home to Brighton & Hove Albion and drawing 0-0 at Brentford. During the same period, Arsenal defeated Chelsea 4-2 at Stamford Bridge and defeated Manchester United 3-1 at home.
Arsenal is presently fourth in the league rankings, having collected 60 points from 33 games. Tottenham sits fifth, two points behind Mikel Arteta’s side, despite having played the same number of games. Kane recently revealed that they are frustrated with their recent performances, but that they believe they can turn things around.
“The last two [games] especially, to only get one point from those two games is disappointing. We’re running out of games in terms of dropping points. There are five games left and we feel like we are pretty much going to have to win all of them to get that spot.” He said (as quoted by football.london)
“We are more than capable of doing that, we believe in that and that is what we’ll try and do. If we win the last five games we will be in the Champions League so that is how we’ve got to look at it. We know those five games will be difficult, we go Liverpool away as well which will be very tough.

Kane, who is Tottenham’s top-scorer this season with 22 goals from 45 matches across all competitions, concluded
“As we’ve seen this season we have dropped points against teams where we were probably expected to win and so have the others around us. It is by all means not done yet. We have to stay focused and keep working hard. We have a little gap now to prepare and work and hopefully, we can put in a good performance against Leicester.”
Spurs’ meeting against title-chasing Liverpool, as Kane noted, may be crucial in the top-four chase. Antonio Conte’s team will visit Anfield on May 7, while Arsenal will play Leeds United the following day.
Prior to that, the Gunners will face West Ham United at the London Stadium on May 1. Spurs will also be in action on that day, and they will be hoping to beat an inconsistent Leicester City at home.
The north London derby on May 12 will, however, be the game that will finally decide the Premier League’s top-four battle. Tottenham will host that game, which may give them an advantage, but Arsenal will undoubtedly put up a fight.
