Tottenham ace Toby Alderweireld spoke to reporters in the aftermath of his side's 1-1 draw with Brighton and Hove Albion last night, and responded when asked how he felt after completing 90 minutes for the first time since February 18th, as quoted by the club's official website.

But Kane, who has won the prize in each of the last two seasons with 25 goals and 29 goals respectively, has told Sky Sports he will not give it up without a fight.

He will be hoping for a repeat of last season, when he overhauled Romelu Lukaku with an extraordinary seven-goal haul in Tottenham's final two games of the campaign against Leicester and Hull.

It was a cagey first half as Brighton defended resolutely, sacrificing any attacking intent to keep Spurs at arm's length.

Spurs full back Serge Aurier clipped the heels of Jose Izquierdo and Pascal Gross managed to squeeze his spot-kick past keeper Hugo Lloris to the relief of the home fans.

"We fight together and showed we have good character as a team. We scored but in the next section we conceded", Pochettino said.

Fourth-place Tottenham moved eight points ahead of fifth-place Chelsea in the race to seal an automatic qualification spot in next season's Champions League.

Pochettino admiited: 'The draw is a little bit disappointing because the intention was to get all three. Chris Hughton's Brighton, meanwhile, still need points to ease their relegation fears going into a tricky run of fixtures and the draw was celebrated joyously by the home supporters. Tottenham next plays in the FA Cup semifinals against Man United on Saturday and Pochettino rotated his team with that game in mind and in the wake of a chastening 3-1 loss to Man City on Saturday. "Saturday's game was so tough, mentally and physically".

'Everyone is ready to play but Brighton was a very hard opponent and we need to give credit to them'.

Gross stepped up with Murray taken off penalty duties and smashed the ball beyond Lloris despite the France international's best efforts.

Since returning from an ankle injury earlier this month, the 24-year-old has been retrospectively awarded Tottenham's second goal against Stoke and now added another against Brighton.
