It seems like no matter how much Harry Kane proves the doubters wrong, he will always continue to have his critics.

The striker’s goal-scoring numbers over the last six seasons are up there with the best in the world, while the 26-year-old is also very much an all-round number nine being capable of holding up the ball and possessing great passing ability.

There were once again question marks posed over the striker following his disappointing display in Spurs’ first game back from lockdown against Manchester United.

The striker dispelled his critics by finding the back of the net in the 2-0 win over West Ham.

Despite the criticism he sometimes gets from opposition fans and parts of the media, the England captain is clearly well respected among his peers.

Wolves midfielder Joao Moutinho has become the latest Premier League star to rave about the Spurs man.

When named the striker as the best player from England at present. The Portugal international told BT Sport: “He’s (Kane’s) a finisher, he’s a striker who knows what to do.

“Control the game, to have the ball, to score, to shoot, and I like this intelligent type of player.”

Moutinho has previously revealed that he had the chance to join Tottenham Hotspur earlier in his career (Wolves official).

Hopefully, that goal against West Ham is the start of a purple patch for Kane until the end of the season. We need him to hit a good run of form if we are going to have any chance of finishing in the top four.
