Tottenham’s world-class trio is backed to save top four bidders


Harry Kane is simply too good for Heung-min Son to be able to win three straight games.

That’s the verdict of Tottenham team-mate Ben Davies as the club’s top four dreams hang in the balance amid the on-going drought in attack.

England skipper Kane and South Korea counterpart Son have not scored in 180 minutes’ action and, along with the rest of Antonio Conte’s men, failed to produce a single shot on target in that time. Arsenal is now in fourth place in the thrilling all-North London fight for fourth place, and Champions League qualification.

Spurs trail their bitter rivals by two points with five games remaining. They desperately need their dynamic duo to spark the flames before it is too late.

Davies is one person who is not panicking. Ahead of today’s with Leicester, the Wales defender insisted Kane and Son will be among the goals again very soon. . They did so throughout his time in N17.

Davies, 29, declared: “I’m sure those boys are well aware of what’s been said about that. But we’ve got two world-class players in that position.

“There’s no doubt in our minds that it’s just one of those things. What they’ve done for us in the past few years, and this season as well, we’re not in a position to critique them at all. We have two serious world-class forwards here. When you have players of that quality, it is a matter of time.”

Antonio Conte has Tottenham in the top four hunt

Antonio Conte is a coach of elite calibre with a track record of success in difficult situations. Davies insists that the former chief of Chelsea, Inter Milan, and Juventus is the ideal person to help them get over the line. He has a plan to break through increasingly-ultra defensive blocksades lined up against them.

“He’s one of the best coaches in the world. We’re lucky to have him here to pass on his knowledge,”The ex-Swansea player said this. When you’re on a good run, doing well offensively and scoring lots, it makes sense for the opposition to shore things up.

“The last two teams put two banks of five and made it very difficult. But that’s another challenge we have to overcome. That’s the reality of success. It’s a double-edged sword. It’s about figuring a way.”

They need to act quickly if they want their Arsenal home derby in the penultimate fixture actually to mean something.

And for anyone needing extra motivation to be back among Europe’s elite, Man City’s seven-goal semi-final thriller with Real Madrid last week provided it, says Davies.

“Those are the games you want to be involved in – that’s the pinnacle. You see the excitement, you feel the excitement,”The 2019 runner-up was also added. “Not just players who love football but my friends outside the game…everyone watches these type of Champions League games.

“A couple of months ago not many gave us much hope of getting near it, but we’ve given ourselves every opportunity.”
