Tottenham striker Harry Kane believes his second-place side can close the nine-point gap on Premier League leader Chelsea to pip the title this season, and looks to the New England Patriots’ epic Super Bowl comeback, spurred by quarterback Tom Brady, as inspiration for his own team’s efforts.
“They are catchable,” Kane told Talksport of Chelsea, as quoted by the Evening Standard. “Going back to the NFL when you watch a team 25 points down with less than a half to go and they come back to win it gives you that inspiration.”
Kane added, “(Brady) is a big role model in the way his career started with people not believing him. But he’s become the greatest of all time … He’s someone I look up to. He’s a good role model on and off the pitch as well.”
On Saturday, Spurs take on Liverpool in a match that could clarify the top-four picture in the Premier League, and Kane affirmed that the margin for victory isn’t quite as wide as it might seem on the table at this moment.
“It is nine points – it’s only three games,” Kane said. “In the Premier League you have recently seen Liverpool dropping points to Hull and Arsenal to Watford. No game is easy – Chelsea will know that.
“They are in good form at the minute but all we can do is win our games and see what happens.”
