Martin Keown predicts how Harry Kane will fare at Tottenham next season

The pundit has been discussing the Tottenham Hotspur striker.

Martin Keown believes Tottenham striker Harry Kane will continue to score 'plenty of goals' at White Hart Lane, according to the Daily Mail.

Indeed, Kane finished the north London side's top scorer by some distance last term and the former Arsenal defender has backed him for a similar return next campaign.

The pundit said during a 'Tackle Keown' session on the Daily Mail website: "I think it’ll be an interesting season for Spurs, to see how they’ve progressed. They haven’t spent very much compared to some of their rivals but they look to have consolidated what they have.

"Mauricio Pochettino has built a reputation for developing a club’s young players and he will want to see Kane pick up where he left off last season. I can still see him scoring plenty of goals - you’ve only got to think back to when he destroyed Chelsea at White Hart Lane last season for an example of his quality."

Keown did, however, suggest Kane won't be able to finish top scorer in the Premier League due to the stellar quality on show from those such as Sergio Aguero.

The pundit's confidence that the 22-year-old will continue scoring could be reassuring, though, as many strikers have suffered from 'second-season syndrome' in the past after a successful campaign in the Premier League.

While last term wasn't Kane's first at Tottenham, it was his first as a Spurs first-team regular and top-flight defences will no doubt single him out far more often next season. His goal against the MLS All-Stars on Wednesday night was proof of his ability but it will be fascinating for Tottenham fans and neutrals alike to see just how many goals Kane nets in the league next time around.
