Cape Town - Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane is hoping this season can see them take the final step and finally get their hands on the Premier League trophy.

Kane scored twice as Spurs thrashed Liverpool 4-1 on Sunday, leaving them five points off the pace set by league leaders Manchester City.

"We've been very close the last couple of seasons to winning the Premier League, hopefully, this year will be our year," the England international said.

"We've definitely got a good enough team to do that, so as I said, we've got to keep working hard and see what happens. It's doable, we've just got to maintain our form.

"Yesterday will give us great confidence, beating a team like Liverpool, that way as well. There's a long way to go, we've been so close the last couple of years, hopefully we can do it this year.

"To win trophies, to become one of the best teams in the world and one of the best players in the world. I feel we've got a fantastic setup to do that, a fantastic manager, fantastic team. I'm looking forward to it."

Meanwhile Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was left lamenting his side's "bad, bad, bad defending" after a loss to Tottenham Hotspur ended the club's title hopes.
