Jamie Redknapp: Without Harry Kane, Tottenham Hotspur would be ninth or 10th

Defence - Spurs v Chelsea

Jamie Redknapp made a big comment about Harry Kane before Tottenham Hotspur’s Premier League clash against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Jamie Redknapp has told Sky Sports that Tottenham Hotspur would be ninth or 10th in the Premier League without Harry Kane.

England Under-21 international Kane has been in superb form this season and has been one of the breakout stars of the 2014-15 Premier League campaign.

The 21-year-old has scored 16 goals and created 20 chances in 25 Premier League appearances, while having a pass accuracy of 76% and a shot accuracy of 60%.

Former Tottenham midfielder Redknapp has been impressed with Kane, and he believes that without the youngster, Mauricio Pochettino’s side would not be challenging for the top four.

“Without him, Tottenham would be ninth, 10th,” Redknapp told Sky Sports before Sunday’s Premier League clash between Manchester United and Tottenham at Old Trafford.

“I honestly believe that because they have got (Emmanuel) Adebayor and (Roberto) Soldado as their strikers, no pace, no real aggression.

“Harry Kane has been brilliant. He has made the game look so easy. I love his work, I love his desire.”

It cannot be ‘proved’ that without Kane Tottenham would be ninth or 10th in the Premier League.

After all, if the youngster had not burst onto the scene earlier this season, manager Pochettino would have found some other way to score goals. Or maybe another player would have stepped up.

However, it is clear that Kane is one of the best outfield players Spurs have in their squad at the moment.

The youngster’s goal have been hugely important, as Spurs remain in the hunt for a top-four finish in the Premier League this season.
