Harry Kane feels he is performing at his best ever level at Tottenham thanks to the influence of Jose Mourinho and a mindset within the squad "to do whatever it takes to get the job done".

The 27-year-old has already been directly involved in 23 goals in all competitions for Spurs this season, taking his record to an eye-watering 201 goals in 301 appearances for his boyhood club.

Those goalscoring feats have yet to translate into trophies at Tottenham, but this could be the campaign when promise turns into silverware judging by the way things have started.

Serial winner Mourinho's Spurs spent the international break second in the Premier League standings and the future looks bright in north London.

"We've got a long, long way to go," Kane told the PA news agency. "A long old season.

"I think, as proven in my career so far, it takes a lot to get over the line. We haven't quite done that yet.

"We've been close a few times, so we know there's going to be a lot of hard work from now until then to do that.

"It's been a good start. Obviously, we lost the first game against Everton which was disappointing, but since then we've been unbeaten in the league.

"Even the dropped points we had against West Ham and Newcastle with last minute goals should have been wins from our point of view.

"Look, we're playing well. I still think that we can improve and get better but obviously we're second in the league.

"We're in November, there's still a lot of games to play, but we're in a good spot."
