Harry Kane believes Tottenham have come a long way since their last trip to Chelsea, saying their mindset is completely different to what it was during March's humiliation.

Spurs have not triumphed at Stamford Bridge in any competition since February 1990, when Gary Lineker netted the decisive goal in a 2-1 win. Since then there have been many embarrassing experiences, including the 4-0 annihilation in March which led then manager Tim Sherwood to heavily criticise his side.

Kane, an unused sub that day, remembers the defeat all too well. "Obviously it is never nice when you get beat, especially by that sort of margin," the in-form striker (pictured) said. "This is a new season now, we've got a great bunch of lads and I think we're all together."

Mauricio Pochettino's men approach the match fresh from overcoming Everton 2-1 on Sunday. That was Spurs' third straight win in all competitions - a result made all the sweeter as the winner saw Roberto Soldado end a 593-minute wait for a goal.

The way the players celebrated the Spaniard's effort was remarkable and underlines what Kane calls the "great togetherness in the team and throughout the squad".
