Joe Hart has taken to social media to describe Harry Kane as a ‘machine’ after the striker netted another brace in Tottenham’s 2-0 win over Dinamo Zagreb on Thursday.
Kane has been one of the most consistent strikers in Europe for more than six years but he has seemingly taken his game to a new level this season.
The 27-year-old has been deployed in a deeper role than in previous years which has allowed his passing and vision to come to the fore.
Taking up the bulk of the creative burden of the Spurs side has not affected the striker’s ability to find the back of the net with regularity, with the England captain’s brace on Thursday taking his tally to 26 goals and 16 assists in all competitions so far (Transfermarkt.com).
Some pundits raved about the striker’s all-round display against Dinamo, with his goals putting Spurs in a commanding position ahead of the return leg next week.
Kane took to Instagram after the game to post a picture of himself celebrating one of his goals, along with the caption: “Great result and an important clean sheet. Got to finish it off next week.”
Hart responded with a comment that simply read “machine” while former Spurs striker Robbie Keane responded with a fire emoji.

Spurs Web Opinion
With his decision to start Harry Kane yesterday, Mourinho would have likely be hoping that Tottenham would be 3-0 up within the hour mark and he could bring the likes of Son and Kane off. However, the striker ended up paying 85 minutes as we could not finish the job early.
It was extremely concerning when Kane had an ice pack on his knee after coming off but the fact that it was just an impact injury rather than a muscle problem suggests that it should not be something that keeps the striker out of the North London derby.
