Tottenham striker Harry Kane took a subtle dig at Chelsea after his side were held to a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge on Monday night. 

The England international claimed that the Blues were 'celebrating like champions' after they came from two goals behind to claim a point against Mauricio Pochettino's side. 

Chelsea's comeback in west London finished Spurs' title challenge, but Kane believes that Tottenham will continue to move forward.

Spurs are set to play in next year's Champions League, of course, while Chelsea will not be playing in Europe after a disastrous campaign. Kane, then, took a sly swipe at Spurs' London rivals following the fiery encounter. 

"When the ex-champions are celebrating like they won the league at the end, it shows that we're doing something right," Kane told the BBC, as per ESPN, after the game.

Spurs will keep going 

"We've just got to keep doing what we're doing, we've got a great bunch of lads, a great manager, great staff and we've just got to keep that and keep moving forward."

On a hectic night at the Bridge, Leicester City were eventually named Premier League champions and Kane applauded the Foxes for their efforts. 

The striker, who has found the back of the net on 25 occasions in England's elite division this term, also insisted that he was proud of his teammates following their title challenge. 

He continued: "We're gutted. We've had a great season. Credit to Leicester. Well done to them for winning the league. They've been fantastic this season.

"We done all we could, we fought until the end, but it's something we've got to learn from.

"I'm proud of everyone, I'm proud of the club and we've just got to keep moving in the right direction, finish the season off well now and look forward to next season."

Battle for second 

Ultimately, though, Tottenham's challenge wasn't quite enough and now they will be determined to see off rivals Arsenal in the battle for second place. 

With just two games remaining, Spurs hold a three-point advantage over the Gunners but won't be resting on their laurels just yet. 

Tottenham are set to play host to Southampton this weekend, while they will travel to relegation-threatened Newcastle United on the final day of the season.
