Spurs can sow seeds of doubt - Kane

Begovic insists Chelsea are still in a good position after their defeat at Old Trafford and urged his team-mates to focus on themselves instead of Tottenham. The league is open and we have a 50% probability to win the league.

But the London rivals must turn their immediate attention to the FA Cup with Tottenham and Chelsea to battle for a place in the final this weekend. "I think you can see the group and the team improved a lot".

Both sides will now turn their attention to next weekend's FA Cup showdown in which Kane says Spurs cannot only book their place in the final, but also sow further seeds of doubt in the Chelsea squad.

"Bournemouth are a tough side, they press high but we did better than them, worked harder and played between the lines, got our chances and took them".

"He may pick a team accordingly".

A Spurs surge to the title certainly isn't out of the question but as United manager Jose Mourinho put it, when asked about his former club, Chelsea remain favourites.

Clean sheets for Chelsea in their past 10 Premier League games, the first time they have had such a streak since December 1996 (13 games).

But now I think you understand more our behaviour against Chelsea (when Spurs had nine players booked and lost Mousa Dembele to a six-game ban). "They are named Chelsea, but they could be named Arsenal, or Tottenham, or another one".

Is the Premier League title race now back on, after so many had assumed Chelsea had the championship in the bag?

"They got a great start and then went on from there".

"Claudio Ranieri said, 'The world was for us, trying to help Leicester'". But it's a big game for us. "That was the moment to realise we can play in the same way that we play at White Hart Lane, and this is a good example we need to work on, knowing that feeling". "The last game we played there, against Gent, was unlucky because Dele Alli was sent off and we dominated".

It was a goal rooted in controversy from Chelsea's point of view as United midfielder Herrera appeared to handle to win back possession.

But they have the ability to cause any opponent problems and with tensions rising at Stamford Bridge, painful memories of last season's 3-1 defeat at the hands of the Saints will be reawakened on a nervy night in West London.
