Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp praises Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has scored 22 Premier League goals this season.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has praised Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane with his comments in the Guardian, after the striker continued his fine goalscoring form at Anfield on Saturday.

Kane scored Spurs’ equaliser against Liverpool, to ensure that the match finished 1-1.

The England international forward finished well, after Christian Eriksen had just about kept the ball in play.

And Klopp admitted after the match that he had been very impressed by Kane’s showing, although he felt his side went to sleep when trying to defend against him.

“We switched off, we thought the ball was out,” Klopp said. “But I must say Harry Kane is a really nice striker.”

Kane has now scored 22 times for Spurs this season in a Premier League, which is a record for any player who has represented the North London club.

Kane has broken the 20-goal barrier for the second season running, and he has now established himself as one of the most feared strikers in the country.

Tottenham’s draw with Liverpool has done little for their title hopes, though, as they are now seven points behind Leicester City.

Tottenham’s next match comes against Manchester United on Sunday at White Hart Lane.
