Jamie Carragher believes Harry Kane's current form proves Tottenham 'not good enough' for top four

Jamie Carragher

The Liverpool legend believes the Tottenham team must provide when Kane doesn't.

Yesterday saw Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane rightly nominated for both the PFA Player and Young Player of the season. The young Englishman has been in fantastic form this season. The

21-year-old has scored 33 goals this season across all formats for club and country, including a goal on his England senior debut.

But recently he has been struggling for his best form. In fairness to Kane, his form this season is such that just two games without a goal counts as a bad run of form.

Kane has struggled in his two most recent outings, against Burnley and Aston Villa.

Former Liverpool defender and Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher has now had his say on the matter.

He believes that Kane's lack of goals truly show how dependent they are on him for their results this season, writing on Sky Sports:

"Harry Kane has been so important for them this season. His goals have taken Tottenham to the top and the fact he hasn't been at his best, or got the goals in recent weeks, is probably showing Tottenham's form.

"A lot of the season, where Tottenham have been fighting for the top four, has been down to him and his form, and if that goes away, it shows that maybe the squad is not good enough, or maybe the signings that were made almost two years ago aren't good enough."

He makes a valid point. It would look as though Kane's lack of goals have highlighted the frailties in the rest of the Spurs team that must be addressed by Mauricio Pochettino in the summer.

Kane, is like their new Gareth Bale, when he isn't on song, Tottenham struggle to click without him.

Spurs need to learn to stand on 11 pairs of feet, not just one.
