Tottenham striker Harry Kane is adamant the side will go on to win silverware in the future following their 2-0 Capital One Cup final defeat at the hands of Chelsea on Sunday.

The north Londoners were looking to end a seven-year wait to pick up a trophy after their extra-time win against the same opposition at Wembley in February 2008.

However, an opening goal from Chelsea skipper John Terry just before half-time put Jose Mourinho’s side on the way to victory and the game was settled on 56 minutes when Kyle Walker inadvertently diverted a wayward Diego Costa strike into his own net.

It proved to be a disappointing afternoon for Kane, who has enjoyed an impressive season with Mauricio Pochettino’s side having already bagged 24 goals in all competitions this term.

The White Hart Lane youth product admitted to being “gutted” after the defeat, but he is confident that the squad assembled will be good enough to give the supporters something to cheer about in the near future.

He said: “I’m gutted for the players, for my team-mates, for the staff, for the club itself.

“It’s the worst feeling in the world – losing, and losing in a final on the big stage is even worse.

“When you see Chelsea lifting that trophy it makes the fire in your belly burn that you want to be back and you want to be lifting that trophy and that’s what we’ve got to do with the squad we have.”
