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.

Overcoming Chelsea this week is a big ask for Mauricio Pochettino's men, who approach the match fresh from overcoming Everton 2-1 on Sunday.

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 in west London, including the 4-0 annihilation in March which led then head coach Tim Sherwood to heavily criticise his side.

Accused

The players were accused of a lack of guts and character in the post-match media as well as the dressing room, leading to strong words being exchanged by the players during a two-hour meeting.

Kane, an unused substitute that day, remembers the defeat all too well and is confident there will be no such recriminations after tonight's encounter.

"Obviously it is never nice when you get beat, especially by that sort of margin," the in-form striker said.

"We had to look at each other, dust ourselves down and really push on. I think since then we've done well.

"This is a new season now, we've got a great bunch of lads and I think we're all together and we'll take that into the game on Wednesday."
