Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne believes that Tottenham Hotspurs are still a threat even without the injured Harry Kane.

England skipper Kane is likely to miss the rest of the season after it was confirmed he suffered ligament damage to his left ankle in Spurs’ 1-0 win over City in the first leg.

Statistically, Spurs have played well in the absence of their star man which was proven by Moura who plundered a hat-trick as Spurs beat Huddersfield Town 4-0.

And De Bruyne believes Mauricio Pochettino’s side will still pose a significant threat in the second leg at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday.

“Harry Kane is a wonderful striker, but it would be disrespectful to the other guys [to suggest it will be easier],” he told reporters via Goal.

“They won against us without him when he went off last week and they have brilliant players.

“They won so many games without him before and they are still a very good team without him. Obviously, he’s a really good player, but it’s not going to change anything.

“It will be a great game – a good atmosphere and, hopefully, a good game. For us, it’s all or nothing.”

Davies says Tottenham Hotspur needs to look ahead

The Spurs lost 1-0 against Manchester City in the English Premier League, but Ben Davies wants his team to see the positives.

City and Tottenham meet again on Saturday in the Premier League, a day before title rivals Liverpool visit relegation-threatened Cardiff City.

De Bruyne reckons it’s a massive task to win all their remaining games – including the Manchester derby at Old Trafford.

“If we don’t win the Premier League, people are going to say it’s a failure,” he added.

“Even if we don’t make it, I think we’ll still have had a great season.

“We’ll probably have to win every game to win the title from here, and we can only control what we’re doing, but we’re still there and doing really well.”
