But it’s not going to be an easy game so we have to make sure we’re prepared and ready for that one.‘As you’re seeing from Liverpool and City so far there’s no letting up from them. I said before the start of the season that a team that can put a good run together, get momentum, maybe win for two or three months on the bounce without dropping any points, that’s what it’s going to take [to challenge for the title].‘It’s a disappointing start but there’s a long way to go.’Spurs dominated much of the game against Newcastle with 80% possession but they mustered only two shots on target throughout compared to their opponent’s three.Kane was particularly subdued, having a solitary strike on goal, but he was denied a strong penalty claim following a challenge from Jamaal Lascelles late on.More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man City‘It is hard to understand how it hasn’t been given,’ Kane said. ‘Just like when a keeper comes out, uses his arms and trips you up – it’s a penalty.’He added: ‘Sometimes you are going to get the rub of the green with VAR, sometimes not.
