Harry Kane has urged Tottenham Hotspur to replicate the form they showed to beat Manchester United when they play Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday. Spurs produced a fantastic performance to beat United 2-0 at Wembley on Wednesday. Christian Eriksen opened the scoring after just 11 seconds and Phil Jones turned in Kieran Trippier’s cross for an own-goal.
Asked where he rated their display against United, Kane said:
“Definitely up there. I’d say top five probably. Throughout the game, they never really looked like threatening us.”
After beating the Red Devils, Pochettino’s men have an uphill task in hand when they travel to Anfield to face Liverpool. Tottenham beat Liverpool 4-1 at home when the sides met in October and Kane wants his team to come up with the same performance they produced to beat United on Tuesday.
“We have got to put in the same performance as we did against United,” Kane was quoted in a report by Reuters.
”Liverpool are a strong team, especially at home when they are on the attack. They have some fast players and last season we didn’t cope with that very well.
“We were poor throughout the whole team, but we can take confidence from the United game. This is the kind of performance we need to produce against the big teams both at home and away.”
Liverpool endured a poor week as they lost at Swansea before being dumped out of the FA Cup by West Brom. However, they bounced back at Huddersfield with a 3-0 win and will pose us a serious test at Anfield, where they are unbeaten in 14 league matches, which included a win against runaway league leaders Manchester City.
“We played well against Liverpool at Wembley so we have to go to Anfield full of confidence,” Kane added.
New signing Lucas Moura was unveiled at Wembley during the second half against United and Kane said he was looking forward to seeing the Brazilian in action.
“Hopefully he can fit right in and when he gets an opportunity, he takes it,” the striker explained.
“There is no rush and it will keep everyone on their toes. He’s done some amazing stuff for PSG so we are excited to see what can happen.”
We have to produce a scintillating performance to keep any hopes of beating Liverpool on Sunday, and I am sure we will.
