London - Tottenham Hotspur hero Harry Kane wants his side to carry on from where left off against bitter rivals Arsenal when they face Liverpool at Anfield on Tuesday.

The 21-year-old was the star turn as he scored two goals in Tottenham's come-from-behind win over Arsenal in last weekend's North London derby at White Hart Lane.

Now fifth-placed Spurs are a point and a place in front of Arsenal, one of their rivals for a top four spot -- and the Champions League football that goes with it -- along with Liverpool, currently seventh.

Yet not since 1995 have Spurs finished above perennial Champions League qualifiers Arsenal.

"If we finish above Arsenal, of course we've got a great chance of finishing in the top four because Arsenal have been up there for so many years now," said Kane.

"You'd like to think if you're above Arsenal then you'd be in the top four but the Premier League is a strange league sometimes and you never know what's going to happen. We've got to focus and do what we can do."

Kane is the English top-flight's leading scorer with 22 goals in all competitions, including an impressive run of 11 in his last 14 matches.
