Harry Kane has failed to make it into former Tottenham forward Garth Crooks’ BBC Team of the Weak, despite ripping the Southampton defence to shreds in the second half on Sunday with his movement and passing.
After a disappointing first-half performance from the away side, Jose Mourinho tweaked the formation in the second half by putting Son Heung-min up top to run in-behind the Southampton back line, with Kane almost playing as a number ten.
The 27-year-old excelled in the role as he found little pockets of spaces and threaded some perfectly weighted balls through for Son which the South Korean put away expertly.
Kane assisted all four of Son’s goals and then showed typical predatory instincts to get on the scoresheet as he was first to the rebound after Erik Lamela’s shot came off the post.
However, Son was the only Spurs player to make into Crooks’ Team of the Week, with the BBC pundit choosing to go with a forward line of Sadio Mane and Dominic Calvert-Lewin alongside the Spurs forward.
