We just have to concentrate on ourselves.”Any team can be beaten on any day and we just have to try to make sure we do that at Anfield.”Kane has scored five goals in ten matches against Liverpool and the clash with towering Van Dijk, 28, could prove decisive in the outcome this afternoon.He said: “As a striker, it’s not just one versus one on the pitch, there’s a lot that goes into it.“Van Dijk is an amazing defender and he has had a fantastic couple of years at Liverpool.“So from my point of view, it’s just about playing my game and making my movements, doing my runs and trying to get on the scoresheet, trying to get assists.“At the end of the day, it’s a team game, so we all have to be on it with each other — so that’s the main aim.”We’ve had a little bit of a rivalry over the past couple of years because we’ve been competing at the top of the Premier League and in the Champions League.Kane on Spurs vs LiverpoolLiverpool beat Tottenham three times in 2018-19, ending the season with a 2-0 triumph in the Champions League final in Madrid on June 1.Kane played in that showpiece occasion but was an ineffectual figure, and not fully fit, having suffered an ankle injury two months earlier.Clearly, it is still a painful memory for a player who holds himself and those around him to the highest possible standards.Kane admitted: “We’ve had a little bit of a rivalry over the past couple of years because we’ve been competing at the top of the Premier League and in the Champions League.“And that’s what happens when you get two good teams at a high level. You want to win, you want to come out on top.“They came out on top in May or June, whenever it was… I’ve tried to forget it!“It’s the first time we have played them since but, look, that is in the past.”We have to concentrate on us now and we have a lot to do to turn our Premier League season around.“Liverpool have a great attacking trio or four — but so have a lot of teams in the Premier League these days.2MORE SPURS STORIESHARRY ALL FOUR ITKane admits Spurs must win EIGHT games to rise into Champions League spotGossipALL GONE PETE TONGVertonghen wanted by host of Italian clubs as long Spurs spell nears endBELOW PARRSpurs suffer blow with Parrott to miss Prem restart after appendix operationPicturedSHIRT STORMNew Spurs 2020/21 home top leaked but angry fans slam silver design as ‘awful”STEP BY STEP’Jose fears for players’ welfare during restart as stars begin ‘pre-season’KAN’T HAVE THATVictor Osimhen keen on Spurs move but only if they sell Kane this summerYOU KAN DO ITKlinsmann quit Spurs to win trophies but says Kane’s better off stayingTURBULENT PAIRINGDrogba and Mido had mid-flight brawl after stewardess prank went wrongGossipSPURRED ONTottenham table contract offer for Bayern Munich’s teenage starlet Taylor BoothExclusivePASS THE TESTEngland’s NRL-based stars urge bosses to make room for a Test this year“When you look at the top six teams now, there are a lot of great attacking players.“It’s not just the attack that is going to win the game, it’s the defence, the whole team, and that’s what we have to do.“We just have to stick together and try to deliver the victory.”Liverpool vs Tottenham – Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time and betting odds for big Premier League clashlast_img read more
