Kane can be Tottenham's Batistuta - Pochettino

Kane can be Tottenham's Batistuta - Pochettino

The London side had an underwhelming start to the season, losing to Chelsea and drawing against Burnley at their temporary Wembley home, but they bounced back with an emphatic 3-0 win against Everton at the weekend.

However, an excellent 3-0 win at Everton after the worldwide break, during which Kane scored a brace of goals, got Spurs back on track.

Victory against Everton saw Spurs move into fifth place, with seven points from their opening four games, and Pochettino praised his players' "solid performance".

Kane, who has now opened his account for the season, passed a century of Tottenham goals during the Everton match and he believes that the club is well placed to mount another title challenge. "Last season I signed at the last minute and didn't have the pre-season so it was hard".

However, the England man says that the arrivals of defenders Davinson Sanchez and Serge Aurier as well as forward Fernando Llorente towards the end of the transfer window could prove vital.

"We have got to test ourselves against these teams", he said.

The north Londoners ran out comprehensive 3-0 winners at Goodison Park on Saturday thanks to an inspired performance from striker Harry Kane. "What you have had is teams spending money, buying big players and big names", he said.

"That does not mean we can not challenge and join them in the latter stages and get past them in a two-legged tie". Kane, whose first goal against Everton was his 100th for Spurs, has won back-to-back golden boots but is still waiting to lift his first trophy. Lamela, who has not played since October past year, is now in "an advanced stage of his rehabilitation", according to his manager and is expected to return to full training next month.

"Now I feel good and ready to fight, like everyone, and to try to give my best for the team. But the most important thing was to have a good game".
