David Ginola admits his worries about Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane

Defence - Spurs v Chelsea

The England international had a tough start to the season.

Tottenham Hotspur are flying this season. The club look like serious title contenders and are also battling for the FA Cup and UEFA Europa League.

At the start of the season however they struggled to get going. Draws were commonplace and striker Harry Kane was not firing.

After an exceptional 2014-15 season the England international struggled to cope after playing for England at the under-21 European Championships.

But now he is firing on all cylinders again and one former Spurs player has had his say on the player.

French cult icon David Ginola stated his thoughts on Kane this season on this weekend's (21/02/2016) episode of Soccer AM on Sky Sports:

"He scored 21 goals last season. We needed to see if he was capable of doing the same year-in year-out.

"It wasn't the case really. After a while the team changed and he starts scoring his first goals.

"He missed some chances. We thought that mentally he would not be there. (He would) start to think too much about 'I need to score, I need to score'.

"This is what strikers need, they need goals, to see the ball in the back of the net.

"He is the kind of guy that can score goals every season, 20 goals at least."

Ginola clearly believes that Kane has come good from his tough experiences at the start of the season.

The striker has now netted 21 times this season from 42 games and is in fine form.

If he can continue to score regularly for Spurs then the North London club might indeed pick up some silverware this term and Kane's early season woes will be very much long forgotten.
