Flashback: Harry Kane destroys Dejan Lovren in 4-1 win

Flashback: Harry Kane destroys Dejan Lovren in 4-1 win

The Champions League final is here and much of the focus is on the return of Harry Kane. A welcome boost for Tottenham and a nightmare for Liverpool. The Reds know all too well about the talents of the England captain. He has scored an impressive five goals in nine games against them, although failing to score in either of the two Premier League fixtures this season. 

Perhaps Kane’s most destructive performance came during a 4-1 win at Wembley in 2017. Yes, Liverpool were a much weaker beast back then. But it doesn’t change how fans will view the return of Tottenham’s talisman. Virgil van Dijk is no Dejan Lovren, but he will have a tough evening ahead, nevertheless. It’s a close battle and both have got the better of each other in the past. But where Fernando Llorente may let you off the hook, Kane only needs one chance.

Here are some of the tweets after Kane’s memorable display against Liverpool:

Although Liverpool’s defence has improved drastically this season, it’s clear that Kane’s mere presence made their defence fearful. Van Dijk and Joel Matip would have felt very comfortable against Llorente, but Kane’s a different proposition all together. It will be an interesting battle, but Liverpool fans certainly won’t be happy to see his return.

Tottenham and Liverpool fans, who do you think will come out on top? Will van Dijk get the better of Kane? Or will he get that one chance that he needs? Comment below.
