Harry Kane has stated that he expects Tottenham to challenge for the title again this season, following Spurs' solid start to the campaign.
Kane was speaking to Sky Sports at the FIFA awards, when he was questioned about Tottenham's title chances:
"We've been title contenders the last two years now and we have been very close," Kane said.
"Manchester City are out at front at the minute but there is a long way to go."
"We are a team that not many people talk about at the start, but we are there and we will be there, hopefully, for the rest of the season and then we will see what happens."
There is certainly a long way to go for any team looking to win the title this season, with Spurs' next challenge on the long road to the title coming against Manchester United on Saturday.
Tottenham currently sit in third place, behind their Saturday opponents on goal difference, while Manchester City have built up a five point gap at the top of the table.
The Tottenham striker was speaking at the FIFA Best Football Awards yesterday, where Cristiano Ronaldo was named Best Men's player.
Spurs have finished in the Premier League top four, consistently qualifying for the Champions League for the past three seasons, but have narrowly missed out on the title to both Leicester and Chelsea on recent campaigns.
Kane has scored 45 goals in 40 games in 2017 and is recognised as one of the best strikers in the league, but admits he still has a way to go before reaching the levels of Ronaldo, Neymar and Messi:
"[I have to perform] on a consistent basis and on a big stage for example in the Champions League and in World Cups and by winning trophies as well," said Kane.
"They have set the standard for everyone but I've just got to keep improving, keep getting better and see what happens."
