Harry Kane is fine with your discussing a two-team Premier League title race. Just know his Spurs team is working to make it three.
“Everybody’s been talking about Liverpool and Manchester City, and we’ve been getting on with it and doing well, like we normally do,” Kane said after Tottenham’s 6-2 blowout of Everton on Sunday.

The 25-year-old Kane scored his 10th and 11th goals of the season in the win, his second-best pre-Boxing Day total, which moves Spurs within two points of second place Man City and six behind Liverpool.
Spurs will continue to keep plugging away, knowing that Liverpool and City meet on Jan. 3. So keep it up, says the captain.
“It’s important we carry that on now. The games are coming thick and fast but they’re games we can definitely win. We’ve had a good month and hopefully we can take that into January now, and February, and we’ll see where we’re at come April time.”
Mauricio Pochettino called Liverpool and Man City the clear favorites for the league, but also says it’s too early to worry about who finishes first. He also quipped that the 2-6 score line was a gift to his wife for their 26th anniversary.
We would’ve suggested flowers, jewelry, or a big donation to her favorite cause, Poch. You’re rich.
