Cape Town - Tottenham striker Harry Kane says they are intent on stopping Chelsea from equalling Arsenal's record for consecutive wins in the Premier League.

The two London rivals meet at White Hart Lane on Wednesday as Blues boss Antonio Conte attempts to write his name into the club's record books.

Conte has made a stunning start to his tenure at Stamford Bridge, with his side five points clear at the top of the league table and looking to match the 14 straight wins set by the Gunners during the 2001/02 season.

But Kane has revealed that Spurs are determined to halt that run at 13 as they aim for a fifth victory on the spin to close the gap on the league leaders.

Asked if that was extra motivation for the hosts, he told Ham & High: "Definitely, we don't want to be the team that lets them break that record.

"Of course we know, that's in our mind - we were talking about it in the changing room after the game against Watford.

"We don't want to be that team they break the record against so we're fully focused. It's going to be a great game and we're excited for it.

"It's going to be a great test for us, a great game. The atmosphere is going to be amazing, we're excited for it and we'll go into that game full of confidence.

"Sunday's result (the 4-1 win at Watford) was the best possible start to the year. It was a tough game away from home but we wanted to start the year well and with a win."
