Ian Wright highlights best thing about Kane's Southampton goal, makes surprise comparison

Defence - Spurs v Chelsea

Ian Wright has praised Harry Kane for his goal against Southampton.

Pundit Ian Wright has told The Sun Goals Podcast that Harry Kane's goal against Southampton reminded him of Frank Lampard.

Spurs hit back from a shock defeat to Newcastle by beating Southampton 2-0 at St. Mary's Stadium on Saturday afternoon, with Kane and Dele Alli getting on the scoresheet.

Alli's goal was a tap in from a Kyle Walker cross, but Kane's goal showed how much confidence the England international is playing with after a slow start to the season.

With nine goals in his last 11 Premier League games, Kane is firing on all cylinders, and that was clear to see with his goal against Southampton.

Kane danced his way past three Southampton defenders before calmly slotting the ball past goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga, and former Arsenal striker Wright was certainly impressed with the goal.

Speaking on The Sun Goals Podcast, Wright stated that he knew as soon as Kane got through on goal that the England striker would score.

Wright also surprisingly compared the situation to former Chelsea legend Frank Lampard, in that he just wouldn't miss when given the chance in front of goal.

"He's up there on his own, working on his own, he's got a sniff of a chance, he has to go through three players and he's done it," said Wright. "The best thing about it was once he got in and around the box, you just thought instantly 'goal'. And that is where Harry Kane is now in respect of the level that he has reached. Once got past that last defender, I said 'goal', and he scored. There was a Frank Lampard vibe about it; once he got through, it was a goal," he added.
