BBC pundits full of praise for Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane

Jason Roberts and Kevin Kilbane purred over the England striker's performance.

Tottenham Hotspur again showed their potential title credential yesterday as they thrashed Norwich City at White Hart Lane in a ruthless and eye-catching display.

The defence and goalkeeper looked superb whilst Dele Alli continues to dumbfound pundits with the maturity he possesses beyond his tender years.

But it was Harry Kane who stole the show.

He scored two goals to overtake Teddy Sheringham as Spurs' best ever scorer for a calendar year in a 3-0 win against The Canaries.

Kane struck his first goal from the penalty spot after being brought down by Canaries stopper Declan Rudd. He then scored his second in clinical fashion. He shoved the ball right before torpedoing an acute and accurate strike into the far corner - a goal Teddy would have been proud of.

It was a performance that had the BBC pundits watching the game purring.

Jason Roberts stated:

"Great news for England - Harry Kane is on form, and he's not afraid to have a shot. Here he knows exactly what he wants to do - he's never going to pass it, he just makes space for the shot and gets it away."

Whilst former Everton midfielder Kevin Kilbane was equally appraising:

"Brilliant from Harry Kane. When a striker is under pressure, it is testament to how he has recovered and he looks in great form now for Tottenham."

Kane now has 15 goals in 30 games for club and country this season as he begins to prove his early season doubters very wrong.

If he can keep up this form, with the inconsistency of the teams around them, Spurs might make a 2016 surge for the title.
