Harry Kane finally found the back of the net in 2021-22 as the Tottenham Hotspur striker scored in their EFL Cup fixture against Wolverhampton Wanderers, where they came away with a 3-2 victory in penalty kicks.
One of the hot stories heading into this matchup was over Kane’s poor start to the season. Before Tottenham’s fixture against Wolves, the 28-year-old had yet to record a goal.
Following the match, manager Nuno Espírito Santo spoke at his press conference, where Football.London relayed his comments. The Portuguese tactician didn’t seem interested in focusing solely on Kane and what this game does for his form.
“I’ve just answered that question. It’s all about us; it’s about (…) Just for you to understand what I’m trying to explain to you, in terms of the squad and in terms of the preparation of the squad, we have players who have 65, 70 sessions, and we have players who have 15 sessions,” Nuno said.
“Until we can balance everything, I think that will be the moment the players improve and get better. Harry did a very good game. I think he has much more to give, and it’s about the team improving and growing together,”
Tottenham and Kane will look to get their Premier League season back on the rails following back-to-back losses against Crystal Palace and Chelsea FC. Spurs will travel to the Emirates Stadium for the latest installment of the north London derby.
After a slow start, The Gunners have two consecutive wins so they’ll look to keep that going against Tottenham.
