Mauricio Pochettino expects Harry Kane to replicate last season’s goalscoring for Tottenham

Harry Kane has yet to score for Tottenham Hotspur this season.

Kane has struggled so far this term, but Mauricio Pochettino has told the Standard that he expects the striker to enjoy the same kind of goalscoring form as he went through last season.

The Argentine boss said: “I expect him to have another season like the last one. You must remember he didn't score for the first two months last year.”

Whilst Kane certainly has it in him to score the same amount of goals as he did last term, his lack of strikes so far this term is not down to the same reason.

The 22-year-old forward only netted his first Premier League goal of the campaign in November after spending time on the sidelines and playing in the Europa League, but this season he has started every domestic game.

The English international looks to be struggling with the weight on his shoulders to be Tottenham's main striker, and it appears as if the defenders he is facing are aware of Kane’s gameplan.

Kane netted 21 times in the Premier League last term, with his form in the winter months that of world beater. He could enjoy the same kind of form this season, and it is likely that when he nets his first of the campaign the floodgates will open.

Kane is getting opportunities to score, and looks to be trying too hard to hit the back of the net, but Pochettino believes the young striker will face no trouble replicating his exceptional form from last season.
