Stan Collymore's pre-season prediction about Harry Kane appears to be coming true

Harry Kane has scored just once for Tottenham Hotspur so far this season.

Stan Collymore's prediction in the Daily Mirror that Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane would struggle this season looks to have been a good call. 

Collymore said that Spurs would finish seventh in the Premier League table this term, but it is his claim that Kane would find it difficult to repeat his heroics from 2014/15 which looks to be the most accurate.

The former Aston Villa and Liverpool striker said that he expected Kane to suffer with 'second-season syndrome', and so far that appears to have been an astute observation. 

"Harry Kane will have question marks against him – second-season syndrome strikes often in young players – and I see a season of disappointment," he said back in September. 

Kane netted 31 times for Spurs last season, as he became one of the Premier League's most feared front-men, but he is yet to find his best form this time around.

The 22-year-old has been given the responsibility of being Spurs' main goal-getter by Mauricio Pochettino, partly due to a lack of transfer activity in that area, but he has only scored once to date.

That goal came against Manchester City in arguably his best display of the campaign so far, but he has generally looked off the pace.

Kane seems short of confidence at the moment and in his latest appearance against Swansea City, sliced the ball into his own net - which is hardly going to have lifted his morale.
