Harry Kane urges Tottenham to maintain their challenge for silverware and reflects on the club's decision not to sign any players last summer

Harry Kane has urged Tottenham to "bring it home" this season as they look to end their 11-year wait for a major trophy.

Spurs have not lifted silverware since winning the League Cup in 2008.

However, they are still in four competitions this season and, ahead of a Sky Live clash with Manchester United on Sunday, are six points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool.

Having gone close in the league over the last few seasons, Kane hopes Spurs can maintain their challenge this time around.

"I've said all along that the aim of a professional footballer is to win team trophies," Kane told Sky Sports.

"There will be no better feeling than to win something with these guys, we've all worked so hard over the last three or four years to turn Spurs into a team that contends each and every year.

"We're in a good stage, we're in a semi-final [Carabao Cup] with a 1-0 lead, we're in the FA Cup and Champions League and we're not too far off in the Premier League, although there is a long way to go.

"So far, so good, but it's this stage of the season that we have just fallen behind in the past so it is important this year that we step it up, work even harder and go into these games and try and bring it home."

Tottenham's squad has been tested this season after they were the only Premier League side not to make any signings last summer.

While the inactivity in the transfer market has been questioned at times over the last six months, Kane says the decision showed "trust in the squad".

He added: "The manager didn't want to bring players in for the sake of it, he was happy with the squad he had. That gives you huge belief as a player.

"If the manager doesn't buy players it shows he is willing to trust and you want to repay him by working hard and improving yourself on the pitch. We've got a lot of players fighting for places and the competition for places is good.

"Everyone has done great this year, players that have come in when others have been injured and done well. We're going to need that for the rest of the season as well."

Asked about the challenge he expects from United, who have won all five of their matches under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Kane said: "They've had spells this season where they haven't been doing well but they are in a spell where they are doing really well now.

"For us, we always focus on ourselves and don't worry about the other team too much. If we get it right and play the way we can, with energy and intensity, we can beat anyone on our day.

"Of course it is going to be a tough game, United will be full of confidence. We're at home so it's up to us to get the crowd off their feet with a high tempo and hopefully get the win."
