Everton manager Frank Lampard has hailed Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane ahead of the two sides meeting on Monday evening.
The 29-year-old has been in impressive form in recent weeks, having displayed his lethal finishing and ability to create opportunities for his team-mates against Manchester City and Leeds United.
The Evening Standard claimed earlier this week following Tottenham’s FA Cup exit at Middlesbrough that the striker’s future in north London has been cast into further doubt and he is said to be ’50/50′ on whether to push to leave at the end of the season.
Kane was unable to steer his side to victory at the Riverside Stadium with the majority of the players around him failing to perform to the expected standard against the Championship side.
Lampard admits that the Toffees will be facing a ‘world class’ player while also praising the England captain’s level-headedness.
The former Chelsea boss told the Liverpool Echo: “He’s in great form, incredible form. I’ve got so much time for Harry Kane, always have done. Humble, captain of England, and his threats are many. We’re playing against a world class No.9.”
Kane will have been bitterly disappointed not to have had the desired impact on the match against Middlesbrough and will be looking to get back on the goal trail and do everything in his power to give Spurs the best possible chance of finishing in the top four.
