Tottenham striker Harry Kane insists that a strong bond within the squad has played a huge part in helping them to mount a challenge for the title this season.

Spurs, who are 5.50 to win the league, have quietly emerged as challengers for the Premier League title as the season has progressed and currently sit second.

The north London club are five points adrift of leaders Leicester but could cut that gap as the Foxes take on fellow title hopefuls Arsenal on Sunday.

Tottenham have lost just three times in the league this season and they also boast the best defensive record in the division.

Kane believes there are a number of factors which have led to their surge up the table this term but singled out the spirit and togetherness of the squad as one of the most important.

The England international believes that with everyone working together towards the same end goal and without any big egos they can continue their push in the final 13 games.

Kane said: “Everyone in this group works hard and is working towards the same thing.

“Even the players who don’t play are still working hard in training and doing all the right things to try to get into the team, which is important.

“If you have one or two bad eggs, it can bring others down others – and we don’t have that. Everyone is fighting for each other and we are in a lot of competitions, so people know they will play games to try to impress the manager.”

He added: “We’ve got to try to keep that belief high.”
