Cape Town - Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane still believes that his side are still capable of winning the Premier League following their 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion on Monday.

The result leaves league leaders Leicester City requiring just three points from their last three matches to be crowned Premier League champions. 

Despite this, Kane has refused to give up on Tottenham’s title hopes and feels that Lilywhites are still in the running. 

Leicester could seal the deal as early as Sunday when they play Manchester United at Old Trafford, but Kane is hoping that the Red Devils can peg the Foxes back. 

"It has not gone. We need to keep fighting," Kane told Sky Sports. "We felt we needed to win this game so we are disappointed. We had enough chances in the first half to put it to bed. But we weren't good enough in the second-half.

"We felt we could easily have won the game if we played in the second half like we did the first. It is football. All we can do is keep fighting. "We have Chelsea next. Hopefully Man United can do us a favour."

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino echoed Kane’s sentiments, but admitted he was disappointed that his side were unable to walk away with three valuable points on Monday. 

"We're very disappointed," he said. "It could have been 3-0 or 4-0 but unlucky for us we weren't clinical in the box.

"It was a very tough game and they competed very well. Now it's difficult to carry on but we need to believe. In football it can happen."
