Michael Owen impressed with Harry Kane; predicts Tottenham Hotspur v Stoke City in Premier League

Michael Owen says that he has been impressed with Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.

Former Manchester United and Liverpool striker Michael Owen has expressed his admiration for Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.

The England Under-21 international has been in brilliant form in recent weeks and has scored in the League Cup, the Europa League and the Premier League.

Kane scored his first goal of the season in the league last weekend when he found the target with a deflected free kick in the final minute against Aston Villa at Villa Park.

With the match locked at 1-1, it was the 21-year-old who stepped up to take the free kick despite Erik Lamela being eager to take it.

Owen has now said that he was impressed with the confidence of his fellow Englishman, but believes that Tottenham will fail to win against Stoke City on Sunday.

‘It will be fascinating to see if Spurs’ boss Mauricio Pochettino perseveres with Emmanuel Adebayor or gives Harry Kane his head after the young striker’s late winner at Villa Park last weekend’, the 34-year-old wrote on Betvictor.com.

‘I loved the way he took responsibility for the free kick but he is one of the few bright sparks this season for the North London Club, and I think the Potters will take at least a point back to the Midlands’.

Tottenham will take on Stoke at White Hart Lane in the Premier League on Sunday.
