Harry Kane says it is the most difficult period since he broke into the Tottenham team

Harry Kane admits Tottenham are going through their toughest period since he established himself in the side.

Spurs have endured a terrible start to the season, winning just three times in 12 games.

They needed a late equaliser to draw 1-1 at home to Watford on Saturday and go into Tuesday's Champions League game with Red Star Belgrade on the back of a 7-2 defeat to Bayern Munich in their last game in the competition.

Asked if this was the worst phase of his time at Spurs, captain Kane replied: "Yes, probably, I'd say so. When you look at the results it's not been easy.

Speaking ahead of the game, Kane was asked to comment on a report that the players felt Pochettino's training sessions were too demanding.

"There's going to be speculation when things aren't going well, when you're not winning games, people will look from the outside for excuses," he said.

"From our point of view we work hard every day. We have worked hard since the manager came here to improve as players and as a team, that hasn't changed.

"We need to carry on doing what we have always done and that is keep working as hard as possible."
