Tottenham fell to their third straight defeat last night against Inter Milan, conceding two goals in the final seven minutes of the 2-1 loss.

Up until that point Tottenham had controlled the tie, looking far more impressive that recent displays against Liverpool and Watford.

Harry Kane failed to find the net again in September, with the striker being without a goal since the 3-0 drubbing away to Manchester United.

Kane has two goals this season, both coming in August as he broke his strange goal scoring duck in that month.

The striker’s performance was better last night at the San Siro though, as he demonstrated some great hold up play, and some neat passing.

Despite claims that he is burnt out from a long season with Spurs, and the World Cup with England, Kane is adamant that he is fit and healthy.

Team mate Erik Lamela has come out in defence of his Tottenham team mate, arguing that many people expect too much from the England captain.

Lamela said: “Harry is not a machine. He scores a lot. He always scores. Against Inter he didn’t and for two or three games he didn’t. But he will score again.

“It’s not like Harry needs to score every single game. Against Inter Christian scored, I scored [against Liverpool]. Sonny will score. Lucas will score. All the pressure is not on Harry. All the attacking players need to score. And that’s it.”
