The forward discusses the feeling in the Tottenham Hotspur camp after a three-game winless run in April and his Golden Boot chances
Harry Kane is pleased Spurs now have a gap between themselves and Chelsea heading into the last three games of the Premier League season.
Tottenham Hotspur travel to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday before ending the campaign with home fixtures against Newcastle United (May 9) and Leicester City (May 13).
Mauricio Pochettino’s team only need four points from their last three matches to guarantee a top-four finish after goals from Dele Alli and Kane secured a 2-0 win over Watford on Monday.
“I probably could have scored a couple more myself and as a team we could have been more clinical in the final third, but it is important we got the win,” said Kane.
“The pressure was on a little bit and now we have got a little gap with three games to go. We could have played a little bit better as a team, but the win is the most important thing.”
Spurs went into the game without a victory in three after losing to Manchester City (April 14) and United (April 21 – FA Cup) with a away at Brighton & Hove Albion sandwiched in between on April 17.

Kane admitted the recent run of results was disappointing for the club and acknowledged they failed to perform to their best in the semi-final at Wembley.
He added: “I hate to lose, the team hates to lose, there were three games in all competitions where we hadn’t won and we wanted to put that right.
“It has been frustrating, we can do better, we could have done better against United and when you don’t do well you want to play straight away and we had to wait a while and that has shown a little bit, especially in the first half.
“It was thanks to Hugo (Lloris) we went in at half-time ahead and getting the goal early in the second half killed the game.”
Tottenham have almost assured themselves of a spot in next season’s Champions League, but Kane has insisted until that is 100 per cent confirmed he will not focus on anything else.
With three league games left, the forward is four goals behind current top goalscorer Mo Salah, but the Liverpool attacker only has two league fixtures to go.
Kane said: “Every striker in the Premier League wants to win the Golden Boot and I’m no different. I want to win at everything I do, whether it’s the Golden Boot, a game or if Iam playing with my mates.
“Of course I want to win the Golden Boot, I am not afraid to stay that, but first and foremost we want to get into the Champions League and hopefully we can do that and take it from there.”
