Tottenham forward Kane hit top form against Bournemouth at the weekend.

Harry Kane got back to scoring ways at the weekend by netting a hat-trick against Bournemouth, and he has assessed his start to the season when talking to the official Tottenham website.

When it was raised to Kane that he had never gone on a barren scoring run as he has recently been on, the forward said: “It’s all part of it [playing football]. It’s all good when you are playing well and scoring goals but sometimes you see the true person when it’s not going so well and when you hit a low, you have to be ready to stand up and fight.”

Kane’s hat-trick took his seasonal goal tally to four for the campaign, having also netted against Manchester City, and it was a performance which suggested the 22-year-old was back to his usual form.

Admittedly, he was playing a poor defence and was aided by some shocking goalkeeping from Artur Boruc, but the performance was one which channelled the Kane of last season - who scored 31 goals in all competitions.

The forward has admitted that when a player is struggling is when you see his true character, and the recent weeks have been the only time that Kane has been struggling since he made his Tottenham debut.

He had never been on this kind of goal drought before, but Kane’s performances showed he was still the player he was, even if the goals were not coming.

The forward was trying as hard as he could to make things happen, and his team play has been expectational this season in a Tottenham team who have performed very well.

The goals will be a welcome boost for Kane, but there should be no doubts about his ability or character considering just how well he was performing even whilst he was failing to hit the back of the net.
