Ian Wright has claimed Harry Kane could become Tottenham Hotspur’s version of Didier Drogba ahead of the north London derby.
The former Arsenal man has been looking ahead to the eagerly-anticipated clash at the Emirates Stadium this weekend. As such, it is no surprise the Spurs talisman came up in the topic of conversation.
However, the 28-year-old hasn’t started the season in the way many would have expected him to, as he is still searching for his first Premier League goal of the campaign.
Kane managed to open his domestic account during the week, netting against Wolves as Spurs advanced to the Carabao Cup fourth round.
The striker’s attention will now turn towards Arsenal – a side that has brought him plenty of action on the goal front in the past. He has scored 11 times in 15 appearances in all competitions against the Gunners, making him the sole goals leader in the derby.
Kane’s record will always crop up in conversation with the fixture around the corner, and ex-Arsenal forward Wright has compared him to Chelsea legend Didier Drogba, who also netted plenty of times against the Gunners.
Speaking on Wrighty’s House podcast, he said: “That’s the one thing, if they get going again, and you know that we have to give Harry Kane a goal. He’s the Drogba.”
Wright’s co-host added: “That’s the problem right, if he gets the goal and him and Son go ‘hey, remember what we did last season, shall we start doing that again?”
Spurs Web Opinion
Kane’s record in north London derbies is pretty self-explanatory, and you would mostly expect him to at least grab one when he plays.
It hasn’t been the easiest of starts for him this season and is nowhere near the level he reached at this point last campaign, but if there was ever a time to net a first league goal, you’d probably want to do it against Arsenal.
