Harry Kane did get on the scoresheet against Wolverhampton Wanderers, scoring his first goal of the 2021-22 season during the EFL Cup match. However, the criticism continues, and speculation of whether Kane wants to remain with Tottenham Hotspur remains an ongoing discussion.
Plenty of pundits, media members, and supporters figure out what’s wrong with Kane. Former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler penned a column for Mirror, where he called out the media for this lazy narrative on the 28-year-old.
“I’ve heard all the snide comments and poisonous accusations, but I’d be amazed if Harry Kane is tossing it off at Spurs,” Fowler wrote. “Yeah, no doubt, he’s had a bad start to the season. And yes, Tottenham’s last two Premier League performances have been disastrous.”
“But it’s just lazy to suggest the reason for that is he doesn’t want to play anymore. It’s easy, isn’t it? Almost an easy way out for people to explain away problems. But one thing I’ve always seen in Harry Kane is the dedication – the obsession even – of a truly professional, committed footballer.”
Kane will look to use the North London derby as a game to continue turning his form around and looking more like the best striker in the Premier League.
The England international has enjoyed playing against Arsenal as he’s scored 11 goals in 12 fixtures against The Gunners. Furthermore, Kane is the leading goal scorer in the derby, so it could be the match that sees the striker get his mojo back following the summer saga he endured.
