When have we had a season where the favourites to lift the Premier League title would be Leicester City or Tottenham Hotspur? Both are the favourites and in the ascendency, with the likes of Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United cast well adrift of the top two.
Despite the Premier League neutral wanting the Foxes to win the title, Spurs’s quality is simply hard to ignore as manager Mauricio Pochettino has developed a young squad with a plethora of quality that is capable of winning the league. Furthermore, with the new stadium being built and shaping up nicely, the future is looking extremely bright for the White Hart Lane outfit.
One player who has been at the heart of the Lilywhites recent success has been striker Harry Kane. The former Norwich City and Leyton Orient loanee has notched 20 Premier League goals this season after netting a brace in Spurs’ game against newly promoted AFC Bournemouth. That makes the England international the outright leader to lift the golden boot at the end of the season.
With his proven goal scoring record, this has attracted interest from Manchester United who are without a potent goal scorer and are set to lose manager Louis Van Gaal at the end of the season and see former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho come into the dugout at Old Trafford.
The thought of Kane leaving Spurs, who are set to play in next season’s Champions League and the possibility of lifting the title ever more realistic, for United who are struggling to gain a place in next season’s Champions League is a truly unusual one.
