Harry Kane believes Tottenham will have an advantage in the race for a top-four finish in the Premier League because they will not be distracted by European competition.
Spurs are eighth in the table and seven points behind Chelsea, who occupy the final spot that guarantees qualification to next season’s Champions League.
After Norwich eliminated them from the FA Cup, Jose Mourinho’s team were knocked out of Europe by RB Leipzig in their last game before the coronavirus pandemic forced the suspension of football across the world.
Meanwhile, their rivals for a top-four finish such as Chelsea, Manchester United, Wolves, Sheffield United and Arsenal are all competing in at least one other tournament.
With only the English top flight to focus on, Kane is confident of his side’s chances of booking a return to the continental competition next term.
He told Sky Sports:
“From our point of view we are not in any of the other competitions so we have got nine games to concentrate on picking up as many points and try and get into the Champions League spots.
“So at least all our focus is going to be on one competition.”
