Tottenham: We are “lions ready to pounce” on Leicester

Harry Kane and Dele Alli discuss their fantastic game against Stoke City, which included a pair of goals for each. Alli and Kane both agree that Spurs aren't going anywhere.

STOKE-ON-TRENT -- Tottenham Hotspur has cut Leicester City’s lead to five points at the top of the Premier League.

Star man Harry Kane has said they are “lions ready to pounce” as Tottenham have now won four of their last five games and momentum is building.

Speaking to Sky Sports after their 4-0 win at Stoke City on Monday, Kane and Dele Alli both looked relaxed and were laughing about how they could’ve scored more.

Spurs are feeling it.

“Every single one of us put in a good performance and we have done for a while now,” Kane said. “We are ready to put the pressure on Leicester. We think we can do it. Leicester are five points ahead but we have closed the gap, that’s all we could do.”

Alli, 20, could have had a hat trick as he rounded Shay Given and somehow hit the post with an open goal, while the brilliant Christian Eriksen -- who set up both of Alli’s goal -- hit the crossbar in the first half.

“We have had the same mentality all season, it is important to keep going all season. I don’t know how I missed that chance! Finishing training for me I think,” Alli said. “I am just enjoying playing, there is nothing to be scared of. Leicester know we are going to keep fighting.”
