Tottenham star says team are not losing their nerve

Tottenham Hotspur talisman Harry Kane has rejected claims that his side are starting to panic in the title race and has stated that recent poor results are not a concern.

Spurs are in a strong position to become English champions for the first time since 1961 but have seen their form falter over recent games.

A 1-0 defeat away to West Ham had many suggesting that the wheels could come off for Mauricio Pochettino’s men, while the North London outfit also drew against local rivals Arsenal and were humbled in the Europa League by Borussia Dortmund.

Kane has stated that Tottenham are still in the running however and are not overthinking their recent results.

“Nobody is panicking. We’ve had a lot of games. Tough games, but then so has everyone else in the Premier League,” the England striker told The Mirror.

“Yes, West Ham was a disappointing result, we know that. But looking back it wasn’t the worst performance in the world. Against Arsenal we played very well but we just didn’t see it out.

“But I don’t think there is anything to be concerned about.”

Leicester City are surprisingly leading the way but Manchester City and Arsenal are also in the running with nine games left.

Spurs travel to take on bottom side Aston Villa on Sunday in what is a crucial game to pick up three points in.
