Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane: I am ready to play every game

Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane insists that he is 'fit and ready to go' despite making a slow start to the new season.

Harry Kane has insisted to the London Evening Standard that he is capable of playing every game up front for Tottenham Hotspur, should Mauricio Pochettino select him.

The youngster is yet to open his club account for his new campaign, but he does not attribute this to being burnt out - after having a lot of pressure put on him.

Kane is the only out-an-out forward in Tottenham's squad, but he believes that he is ready to take on the mantle of being the side's main goalscoring hope. 

“We have a lot of games coming up and I’m happy to play every game,” Kane told the London Evening Standard. “I am fit and I’m ready to go. I will play as much as the manager wants me to play. It’s up to him and what he sees in his squad, but I’m ready to go."

The additions of Heung-Min Son and Clinton Njie have added to Tottenham's attacking options, but neither is the typical number nine. 

The new recruits both prefer playing in a deeper role, and it means that Kane will be required to re-find his top form if Spurs are to reach their optimum performance levels. 

The England international showed his class last term, but he has struggled to have the same impact this time around. 

That said, Kane did not score his first Premier League goal until November last season, after being given limited first team opportunities, and he still went on to net 21 times so there is no need to panic just yet.
