Tottenham ace Harry Kane comments on his goalscoring ability

Harry Kane has scored six league goals for Tottenham Hotspur this season.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has said that he always believed in his goal-scoring ability and thus remained confident during his early season struggles, the Mirror reports.

After notching 21 Premier League goals last season, Kane started the season experiencing somewhat of a goal-drought with just one goal to his name in his opening nine league matches.

There were many who were quick to voice their doubts, calling Kane a one-season wonder as they seemed to somewhat revel in the striker’s misfortunes.

However, five goals in his last three matches have quietened the critics, and Kane believes it was only a matter of time until before he once again found the net with regularity.

“I seemed to be scoring pretty much every time I played last term, so I knew there was ­going to be a spell at some point in this ­season that I probably wouldn’t be scoring for a few games,” Kane said, according to the Mirror.

“And when the season started I was aware that people were going to ­compare me to last year so I was ready for that.

“Obviously, I knew certain things were going to come up if I wasn’t ­scoring, but I am confident in my ability and I know what I want to achieve in my career and I knew that the goals would come.”

Kane’s goals in recent weeks have coincided with an excellent run of form for Spurs including a 5-1 victory over Bournemouth and a superb performance in the 1-1 draw at rivals Arsenal.

There is still a worry that the 22-year-old could suffer from the lack of competition at White Hart Lane, and likewise the team could suffer should he end up having a spell on the sid-lines through injury.

It’s a dilemma which boss Mauricio Pochettino may seek to resolve during the January transfer window.
