Harry Kane says Tottenham’s squad is ‘stronger’ than last season

Harry Kane says Tottenham’s squad is ‘stronger’ than last season and Eric Dier is looking forward to Wembley experience.
Harry Kane says Tottenham’s new signings have made them stronger than last season and ready for the Champions League.
Spurs have kept hold of the majority of their first-team players that saw the club challenge for the Premier League title until late on last season, while they have brought in the likes of Vincent Janssen, Victor Wanyama and Moussa Sissoko to help bolster their squad.
Kane is yet to score in the new campaign, having finished as the top flight’s leading goalscorer with 25 goals last time around, and he admits with the added pressure of Champions League football set to begin the players now need to improve on results so far.
“I think we’ve got a stronger squad than last year,” said Kane. “We’ve added some great additions to the team. We’ve bought some great players in who have fitted in perfectly.
“So now we’re ready, we’ve got a lot of games, being in the Champions League against tough opponents. We definitely feel we’re ready to go and we’re stronger than last year.
“The performances haven’t been amazing. There’s still room to improve. But we’ve got some good results against some tough teams. We hope to kick on now like we did last year, get some wins and go from there.”
Kane was speaking alongside Spurs and England team-mate Eric Dier at a community event held by the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation and Brent Council at Wembley, which aims to get local residents involved in regular exercise.
Dier, who joined Kane in the starting line up as Sam Allardyce won his first game in charge of England on Sunday, is excited at the prospect of playing Champions League football at Wembley this season, with Tottenham set to play their European fixtures at the national stadium while work on their new ground continues.
“The opposition are very excited to be able to play at Wembley but so are we,” said Dier. “We’d love to play at White Hart Lane but it’s hard to beat Wembley. It’s a very special stadium and luckily I’ve managed to play there already for England but to play there for Tottenham in the Champions League will be fantastic.”
Tottenham return to Premier League action this Saturday with a trip to Stoke, where the club recorded their final win of last season’s campaign, and Dier admitted their end-of-season decline is something they are looking to forget quickly.
“It was our last happy memory of last season,” said Dier. “Hopefully this weekend there can be more of the same. We’re really looking forward to playing again in the Premier League after the international break and we need to kick on this season.
“The aim is obviously to make Champions League football a regular thing for Tottenham. The league is still a massive priority for us and this year we have the lovely distraction of the Champions League as well so it’s a really exciting season.”
