Harry Kane has been slammed by Alasdair Gold in his latest player ratings piece for football.london despite Tottenham Hotspur beating Fulham 1-0.
The North London club took the lead inside the first 20 minutes of the first half through an own goal from Tosin Adarabioyo and managed to hold on in the end as Scott Parker’s men proved to be a tough opponent, with Josh Maja having a goal disallowed in the second half by VAR for a handball in the build up.
Will Kane stay at Spurs next season?
While there were some decent performances from Jose Mourinho’s team, Gold was rather underwhelmed by Kane’s display, giving him a 5/10 overall rating, the joint-lowest out of any Spurs player along with Gareth Bale, as he missed two ‘big’ opportunities to score and had an ‘off’ night by his usual high standards.
Kane not at his best for Spurs
As Gold points out, Kane did not have his best of game in a Lilywhites shirt. Aside from missing two ‘big’ opportunities, the England international, who is currently earning £200,000 per week, lost out on five of his duels, had just a 67% pass accuracy and lost possession of the ball no fewer than 14 times in the game, the joint-third most out of any of his teammates to have set foot on the pitch (Sofascore).
Nonetheless, the 27-year-old striker will be hoping to get back to his best when THFC host Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Sunday evening.
