Thierry Henry identifies the problem he's noticed when watching Tottenham striker Harry Kane

Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane has failed to score in any of his opening eight appearances of the season, and Thierry Henry has spotted a problem.

Thierry Henry has told Sky Sports that he believes Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane is trying too hard to score at the moment.

Kane has not found the target in any of his eight games so far this season, and his performances are far short of the standard that he was delivering last term, when he racked up 31 goals in total. 

It is a worrying time for Kane, but Henry says that that England international needs to relax, as he is trying to force the issue and break himself out of an unfortunate run. 

"It's a weird one," Henry admitted. "When I'm watching Harry Kane at the moment, he's forcing it. I understand that, I've been in that situation.

"Last year, he was missing penalties and they were coming back out to him, so he just had to tap the ball in. Now, everything has gone the other way. He has to just wait, that big moment will come."

Kane's drought is a worrying one for Spurs, as he carries so much goalscoring responsibility for the side, as the only genuine number nine in the squad.

The 22-year-old may still be learning, but he needs to start finding his feet as Mauricio Pochettino's team rely on him to lead the line.

The likes of Heung-Min Son and Clinton N'Jie are both capable of playing up front, but both prefer to operate from deep, meaning that Kane is Tottenham's out-and-out centre-forward. 

At the moment, Kane's only goals this season have come while away on international duty - with the youngster scoring against San Marino and Switzerland for England in their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign.
