You have no idea how relieved I am to finally be doing an In Focus segment about Tottenham’s lead man and top goal scorer.
Since the end of last season, Kane has looked slightly out of sorts, despite picking up the golden boot at the Russia World Cup in the summer.
His performances have looked rather laboured, and while Kane had been taking chances when delivered, he didn’t look like the same physical presence Tottenham fans had come to expect.
Today was a different story. Kane was physical. He was fast. He was powerful. He was lethal.
For the first time this season, Harry worked that opposition defence for the full 90 minutes, never giving them a moment’s rest.
He dribbled past players, burst into space, held the ball up well, and most importantly put away his two chances when they eventually came.
It looked as if Kane could create problems for Huddersfield, rather than just be the one to capitalise on them, and boy do Spurs need this with Barcelona coming mid-week.
Kane powered home a quality header 25 minutes into the first half, making the most of a delightful Kieran Trippier cross. He out muscled his defender, and guided the ball past a diving keeper at the far post.
Then, just 9 minutes later, Kane stepped up to continue his run as the most prolific penalty scorer since 2015 in the Premier League. The man doesn’t miss, and her never takes anything below a world class pen.
It was a delight to see Harry back to his best today, and getting the goals and subsequent headlines he deserves.
Let’s hope he can kick on even further. A hat trick on Wednesday perhaps?
