Janssen determined to retain Tottenham starting spot

Tottenham striker Vincent Janssen wants to make it impossible for Mauricio Pochettino to drop him even when Harry Kane returns from injury.

The 22-year-old, an £18.5million signing from AZ Alkmaar in July, was expected to play second fiddle to Kane this season but he has other ideas.

"I am ready to play. I feel bad for Harry but if he is fit I want to play with him," Janssen said.

"He is a very good player. We played some games together and it went very well. He has a lot of qualities - he is one of the best strikers in the world so it is nice to play together with him.

"I can learn a lot from him but at the end I want to play a lot with him. It is nice that he is here."
