Can Spurs beat Arsenal in the league this season? Here's Harry Kane's answer

Harry Kane has told ITV London of his desire to "get one over" on arch rivals Arsenal as players met with fans in Brent today.

The Spurs and England striker said he is "hopeful" of the club's chances based on recent performances and said that he is confident in his goal-scoring ability.

I'm confident.

We're only three games in - I know if I keep doing what I'm doing I'll score goals and hopefully have a run for the Golden Boot again.

– Harry Kane

Spurs, who are playing their home matches in the Champions League at Wembley this season, were in the neighbouring borough to promote free health checks and encourage more people to play sport.

Half of the Brent population is classified as overweight and an estimated one in five obese, according to Sport England research.

The club's initiative, called ‘My Heart Beats for Brent’ aims to encourage local residents to take part in at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day using the Borough’s facilities and open spaces.

Currently, over half of Brent residents aged 16 and over don't take part in at least half an hour of exercise during a week.

The Tottenham Hotspur Foundation will also roll out a scheme in Brent to deliver health checks to men over the age of 35 -who are traditionally reluctant to visit their GP - following a successful launch in Haringey.
