Harry Kane is not fazed that Eden Hazard and other “neutrals” want Leicester to win the Premier League, not Tottenham.
Hazard said last week that he does not wish for Tottenham to win the Premier League, causing controversy as the two sides clash next Monday in a match which could end the north London club’s hopes.
Chelsea then play Leicester on the final day, and so could have a large say in the eventual destination of the trophy.
“The fans, the club, the players, we don’t want Tottenham to win the Premier League,” Hazard said. “We hope for Leicester because they deserve to be champions this season. We have a good game next week against Tottenham and if we can beat them it will be good.”
Hazard’s comments have led to claims over Chelsea’s desire heading into the games against both of the league’s top two sides, but Kane remains unmoved.
“There’s nothing we can do about that,” Kane said. “There are a lot of neutrals who want Leicester to go on and win it for one reason or another. We feel we’re one of the best teams in this league, we can’t control what other teams or managers do.
“That isn’t down to us, that’s their point of view, what they say is down to them.
“There have obviously been a few comments from managers and players saying they want Leicester to win but we’ve just got to go out there and do our job.”
