Spurs must stand together as one: Kane


Rallying call: Harry Kane

Harry Kane has called for everyone at Tottenham to stick together and turn their season around.

Spurs were beaten 2-1 by Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday, despite having taken the lead inside the opening minute when the England captain headed in after Son Heung-min's shot rebounded off the crossbar.

A third Premier League defeat in five games leaves Mauricio Pochettino's side 11th in the table and eight points off the top four.

Kane feels the focus must be on putting things right quickly rather than looking for excuses after failing to build on the midweek 5-0 victory against Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League.

"When you lose a game, it's not a step forward," said Kane. "It showed we have got to work hard to win in the Premier League.

"It is disappointing, so we will assess it this week and see where we can improve and take it into Everton next week."

Spurs have won just two of their last nine games in all competitions ahead of another trip to Merseyside on Sunday.

Kane added: "A winning run has got to be the aim, but we've got to turn it around quickly.

"When you are in form like this, where you can't get a run of wins together, it is difficult.

"It is down to us to stick together, to do more and make sure we come out of it."

Tottenham then travel to Belgrade on November 6 for the second Champions League group game with Red Star before hosting Sheffield United ahead of the next international break.
