Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane said that he analyses and judges his performance more than anyone else. The striker ended his goal-drought by scoring in Tottenham’s 2-1 win over Brighton. The win also ended Spurs’ two-match losing streak.
Harry Kane’s form and fitness came under scrutiny after not finding the net for quite some time. However, he said that he is happy to have ended his goal drought. The 25-year old now has 143 goals for Spurs which puts him on level with Jermain Defoe.
Kane said, “I would 100 per cent rather have the focus than not have it. I have scored three goals this season which is not terrible. Obviously when you set standards in other seasons and other games, people will talk if you do not reach them and I am the first to analyse my game and see what I could do better.
Of course I feel I could have done better in most games this season. Brighton was probably the first game I was truly happy with my all-round performance.
I felt good. As a striker you are going to be under the microscope more than everyone else. That is the life of the striker. You will get chances, miss chances, feel you can hold it up better. All you can do is look forward and try and improve. As a striker, you go through good spells, bad spells. The most important thing for me is to work hard for the team – to do a good shift for the team. I am always pleased to score.”
Tottenham are currently 5th in the Premier League table below Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea and Watford. Tottenham play Watford in a Carabao Cup fixture on Wednesday. Spurs last faced Watford a few weeks back, losing 2-1. However, this time they will be looking to put up a much stronger performance.
Tottenham’s next Premier League fixture is against Huddersfield Town on Saturday.
