- Match Analysis
There has been concern regarding Kane’s fitness following a hectic summer schedule where he led the England side in the World Cup. The Three Lions might have failed in securing a place in the final but Kane returned with the golden boot as he ended the tournament with six goals in his kitty.
But Kane’s recent performance for the Three Lions has been below the par and the Spurs attacker struggled to grind out something positive against Spain and Switzerland in the UEFA Nations League recently.
But the Liverpool manager has rejected all claims. “That’s just rubbish.
“We all knew after the World Cup, especially when England went so far in the tournament, they had no rest. Harry played from the first match day on, that means maybe two weeks holiday. That’s nothing.
“He’s a physical worker, he uses his body every day. We all need rest. He cannot get the rest match-wise but he will find his form, maybe at the weekend. He has already delivered.
“It’s not that he’s not in good shape. It’s only that he’s that highest level striker, people think I’m not sure, ‘Is that the Harry Kane from last season?’. We are all not sure yet the people from last season
“We bring together all these players and form a team from that and it’s difficult. You need time for that. But you get tested every week or every three days.
“You go through the line-up of Tottenham and realise they can replace even Alli, Lloris. That’s how it is. They have a very good squad and they are all used to different situations.
“They will be a really strong side and no I don’t think it’s the perfect time to play Tottenham.”
