I never thought I’d see the day; Tottenham fans asking for Harry Kane to be dropped.
But that’s exactly what some supporters on Twitter want for Tuesday’s visit of West Ham.
Kane should come on last 30. Give Son the central role and involve Gio & Ndombele.— cenk (@cenkthfc) June 19, 2020
Without Kane.— Mark Dobson (@m0rkWd0Bs0n) June 19, 2020
Agreed. Kane is not ready.— ‘ (@thfcjames__) June 19, 2020
Ndombele Dele Bergwjin
Sissoko Lo Celso
Davies Toby Sanchez Aurier
Lloris— Mikhal Geordian (@mikhalgeordian) June 19, 2020
Aurier – Toby – Sanchez – Davies
Sissoko – Ndombele
Bergwijn – Alli – Lo Celso
– Kane at the 70th Min. (Rotate Son to the Wing and Lo Celso to MF in place of Winks)
– Rotate the remainder based on flow of game and specific needs.
KANE IS NOT READY FOR 90 MIN
Not with Kane needs to comeback gradually— andy (@andyhotspur4) June 19, 2020
The 26-year-old striker’s return to Premier League action for the first time in six months against Manchester United on Friday was one of the most ineffective Kane performances I can remember. He didn’t have a sniff of goal and looked leggy 10 minutes into the second half, which is of course understandable. Yet again he was flogged for the full 90 minutes without the option of a striker on the bench. We are physically breaking this man.
And the sentiment in the above tweets is strongly protective towards Kane’s long-term fitness and giving him a chance to get back to his explosive best.
Any other player coming back from Kane’s layoff would be eased back gradually, but we’re too starved of alternatives to offer him that luxury.
What do you think – would you start Kane against West Ham?
