Harry Kane expects Liverpool to up their game at the Lane after Jurgen Klopp’s arrival
Harry Kane believes Jurgen Klopp’s arrival at Liverpool will make the visitors more dangerous at White Hart Lane on Saturday, revealing the Reds’ England contingent “could not wait” to start working with their new manager.
Spurs striker Kane has been away on international duty with Liverpool’s Nathaniel Clyne, Adam Lallana, James Milner and Danny Ings, and can testify to a sense of excitement in the opposition’s camp ahead of this weekend’s Premier League showdown in north London.
“In the first couple of games after a managerial appointment everybody tries to impress so they will probably have that little five per cent extra than usual,” said Kane. “We expect that. The Liverpool players at England could not wait to get back to start working under him [Klopp].
“But we have out-run every team we have played so far this season and that’s a sign we’re playing the manager’s tactics right and are fit enough to do it – and that’s what we have to do again on Saturday.
“Obviously Liverpool, with a new manager, will be up for it. But we know what we have to do.
“Nobody is really talking about us and the top four, and that’s probably a good thing.
“We haven’t lost in the league since the first game of the season. We’ve had a few draws where we should have won as well, but we are playing well and doing the right things.”

Kane added: “We have a fit, young squad and we are training hard. We are happy to stay under the radar and keep putting in good performances because it’s very open this year.
“That’s down to the standard of the Premier League – anyone can beat anyone, and that’s been shown a lot this season.”
