Harry Kane has warned Arsenal that Tottenham are determined to gain revenge on the Gunners by finishing above them this season.

The Lilywhites ended up in third place in the Premier League table behind their bitter local rivals last term after challenging Leicester for much of the campaign.

Arsenal have endured a stuttering start to the year and have just lost back to back games in the Premier League to leave them 12 points off the pace in the race for the title.

Tottenham are currently second in the table and Chelsea’s closest challengers, nine points behind the Premier League leaders.

Kane admits that finishing behind the Gunners last season was painful for him and his team-mates and he is determined to put that right this term.

Speaking in an interview with ESPN FC, Kane said: “It hurt us a lot. Not just not finishing above Arsenal, we wanted to finish second. We did well all season, we went game-to-game with Leicester pretty much until the end of the season. We wanted to finish strong.

“If we’d finished second, everyone would have said ‘OK, Leicester won the league but Tottenham had a good year’. But it ended up with Leicester winning the league and Spurs having a disappointing season.

“But it wasn’t – it was a great stride and progression. That put a damper on everything.

“Of course we want to finish above Arsenal, we want to finish above every team. But it’s more that we wanted to finish second to say ‘alright, we didn’t win the league but we had a great season’.”
