I was annoyed to hear various pundits saying Harry Kane was devoid of confidence and not relying on his instincts any longer.
Harry Kane is a fantastic footballer and goalscorer who is struggling a bit due to his lack of rest and stunted pre season. In addition, I believe the lack of creative flair and goalscoring assistance is the catalyst to this dip in form.
It’s hard to look any further than the club’s hierachy when we look at Kane’s slight dip in goalscoring form. The club have not added players in attacking areas until the season has started, and with the untimely injury to Christian Eriksen, Mauricio has been left with a rather hard job. The line up against Everton looked incredibly negative but to be fair to Mauricio, the eleven on the pitch were probably the most fit and readily equipped to deal with a relatively tough tactical game like Everton at home.
The answer to our problems, and Harry’s, have hopefully arrived in the shape of Son and Njie along side the inevitable signing of Saido Berahino. These three along side Eriksen and Chadli should provide Harry with the ammunition/competition he needs to score the goals we know he can.
Finally, I looked at the recent signings of Rondon and Evans (£15m + £7m = £22m) at WBA and feel they don’t have that kind of money to spend alongside other additions. Also my calculations are surely not a complete coincidence? The only question now is what holding midfielder will Mauricio bring in? Let’s hope for Witsel or Wanyama, not another Capoue or Stambouli!
