Former Tottenham Hotspur player Micky Hazard explained on talkSPORT what impressed him most about a specific performance from Harry Kane last season.
Hazard was being quizzed by the radio station over the state of the Chelsea defence, another of his former clubs, and he highlighted the current Tottenham striker as the man who gave the Blues back four the toughest time last season.
Kane enjoyed the best season of his career to date in Tottenham colours last year, ending the campaign as the club’s top scorer.
“What impressed me about that performance (against Chelsea) was the way he ran Cahill and Terry ragged with the speed of his movement,” he told talkSPORT.
Kane’s biggest asset
Harry Kane’s biggest asset in Tottenham’s attack is arguably the movements he makes and the way he reads space in between defenders.
He never stands still and is always looking to pull a player out of position to create space for himself or one of his teammates.
He’s looked a little rusty so far this season, but he’s got the work ethic needed and the intelligence to be able to exploit pockets all over the opponent’s final third.
Where he sometimes struggles is when he becomes a little bit isolated. Sides can cut the supply line off into him, which makes it difficult for him to get into a game, but he’s got enough about him to be able to deal with that challenge over an extended period.
