Mauricio Pochettino comments on Harry Kane's performance against Everton

Mauricio Pochettino still believes in Harry Kane despite failing to score against Everton.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has told Sky Sports that he was happy with Harry Kane's performance against Everton this evening.

Spurs toiled away trying to break Everton down, and despite hitting 20 shots at Tim Howard's goal, they couldn't find the winner at White Hart Lane, drawing for the third game in a row.

However, Spurs did carve out one exceptional chance in the 0-0 draw, as Harry Kane was played clean through on goal by a superb pass from Ryan Mason.

Kane, who was so prolific last season, has yet to find the net this season, and his lack of confidence showed as he got the ball caught between his feet before firing straight at Tim Howard.

The England international's goal drought continues, and fans are becoming increasingly concerned about his lack of goals - especially considering that he is essentially Tottenham's only centre forward.

However, manager Mauricio Pochettino hasn't lost faith in his striker just yet, telling Sky Sports after the game that he was pleased with Kane's performance, and knows that he will eventually find the net again.

"I am happy with Harry Kane," Pochettino said. "He had two or three clear chances but I am happy. He needs to work hard and play. A goal will come for Harry. All strikers have spells like this and only time can do it. I trust in him," he added,

With an international break now upon us, Spurs will be hoping that Kane can hit the ground running when he makes his return to North London, as the longer his drought goes on, the more fans' concerns grow.
