Harry Kane has revealed that he is not worried about his lack of goals so far this season, insisting it is only a matter of time before he starts scoring with regularity again.

Kane has arguably been the most consistent striker in the Premier League for the last seven years.

However, following the prolonged transfer saga during the summer, the striker has looked extremely lacklustre, having found the back of the net just once in ten Premier League games so far.

Some pundits have put the 28-year-old sub-standard displays down to him being mentally affected by the failed move to Manchester City in the summer.

Kane has dismissed that suggestion, insisting that it is just a case of things not falling for him in front of goal this season.

The England captain told BBC Radio 5 Live (via The Evening Standard): “As a player, I’ve always loved training.

“I’ve always just loved getting back on the training pitch and just getting back to doing finishing drills, doing different movements just feeling the scoring.

“I know the goals will come, there’s no doubt about that. But as we spoke about in the summer I went a couple of games without scoring [for England] and there’s a lot of talk but it’s just about sometimes the ball falls your way, sometimes it doesn’t.

“That’s honestly what happens as a striker, it’s about being in the right place at the right time and doing the right movements.

“As I’d always back my finishing whenever I get chances, there’s no reset button and it’s just about working hard and keeping focus, that self-belief and the goals will come, the chances will come and obviously I’ll be there to put them away.”

Kane admitted that his form at club level has been disappointing of late, given the standards he has set for himself. However, he confidently asserted that he will overcome this challenge, just as he has done with various other ones over the course of his career.

The striker added: “Obviously from an England point of view the season has been a good season.

“It has been a great calendar year not just for me but for the team, leading our nation to the final [of Euro 2020] is an extremely proud moment in my career and hopefully, we finish the job tomorrow and qualify for another major tournament.

“In terms of club obviously it’s been an up and down season, probably a bit more disappointment than we’re probably used to.

“Obviously with a new manager and now another new manager, my personal form hasn’t been as good as it has been in recent years at this stage of the season.

“But all in all, just something to adapt to and learn from. Every season you find a new challenge and that’s what I’ve always found in my career so far.

“So this was about how you deal with that, how you cope with that and my method is always just keep your head down work hard and from a personal point of view, I know the goals that are there and it’s just about taking the opportunities when they arrive.”

Spurs Web Opinion

While Kane’s form this season has been shockingly bad, I still expect him to start banging in the goals sooner rather than later.

The striker has proved doubters wrong time and again over the course of his career and now that he has a fresh start under Conte, I am confident that he will end the season with at least 15 to 20 goals.
