Harry Kane has been a bit of a worry since the Premier League restarted, with some fans, myself included struggling to appreciate just how many months the 26-year-old had been out of action. However, yesterday’s performance against Arsenal was notable improvement, despite the England captain not appearing on the score sheet.
5 SHOTS ON GOAL Harry managed five attempts, of which 4 were on target. This was only the second occasion in our last 9 games that Kane has been so lively.
3/5 AERIAL DUELS Harry’s average rate of successful heading challenges is 37.5%, and yesterday Kane just upped his game to achieve 38%.
4 SUCCESSFUL DRIBBLES Kane’s recent poor form has driven down his dribbling and his average is 45.6%, and against Arsenal Harry hit an impressive 80%
3 INTERCEPTIONS this is an area in which Harry came close to doubling his average (1.7) to 3 against the Gunners.
Improvement with players coming back from injury – particularly at Tottenham – can be slow work, and this game gave us the first glimpse of Harry getting back into the groove.
