Tottenham's Harry Kane: What Alan Shearer has told me about my current form

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has spoken to Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer about his lack of goals this season.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has been discussing the advice offered to him by Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer in the Daily Mail.

Kane has made a slow start to the season, and is yet to hit the back of the net for Spurs in their first five Premier League matches. 

The domestic struggles have rather killed the momentum that he built last term, when he netted 21 times, but Shearer has told the youngster not to panic about the mini-drought that he is currently suffering. 

"Alan Shearer told me that it’s a long season ahead and I have to stay calm, that chances will come my way and when they do he’s sure I’ll take them," Kane explained in the Daily Mail

"He said that you’re not going to score in every game as a striker, you have to be ready for three, four, five games without scoring. In that time you have to keep doing the right things for the team and working hard."

As the Premier League's record goalscorer, there are few better people for Kane to learn off than Shearer.

The 22-year-old will be keen to hit the back of the net soon, though, as he appears to have visibly lost confidence in front of goal.

Spurs will need him to find top form quickly, too, as they are relying on him to score the bulk of their goals this campaign - as their only recognised out-an-out striker.

Kane can, however, take solace from the fact that it took him until November to score his first Premier League goal last season, when he netted against Aston Villa.
