Tottenham aiming to come ‘back with a bang’ targeting Man Utd win to boost Champions League dream, says Harry Kane

HARRY KANE has warned Manchester United that Spurs are aiming to come “back with a bang” in their upcoming Premier League clash later this month.

The two sides will face each other on June 19 in their first games back since the season was halted in March.

Despite sitting seven points off fourth-place Chelsea, Spurs can still qualify for next season’s Champions League.

United are just three points behind the Blues.

But defeat for Spurs could see their European dream ended.

However, Kane has told the Red Devils to expect fire and fury from Tottenham when they meet in North London.

Kane said: “We’ve got Man Utd first – we go back with a bang.

“From our point, we’re not in any of the other competitions.

“We’ve got nine games to try and concentrate on getting as many points as we can and try to get in that Champions League spot.

“All our focus will be on one competition.”

Spurs stepped up their preparations for the clash with United with a series of 11 v 11 practice matches on Friday.

Jose Mourinho’s players trained on the pitch at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the first time since lockdown came into force.

The squad took part in a string of short practice matches as they began the process of trying to build up the match sharpness they will need for Project Restart.

Captain Kane is understood to have looked sharp as he continued his comeback from the hamstring injury which had threatened to end his season before Covid-19 struck.

Dele Alli and Eric Dier were both in action as they continue their wait to learn whether they will be hit with bans from the FA over separate misconduct charges.

Other players who had been injured when the season was halted – Son Heung-Min, Moussa Sissoko and Steven Bergwijn – also came through the session well.

It means Mourinho is likely to have a far stronger squad of players available to him for the run-in to the campaign than the injury-hit group he was left with in March.
