Harry Kane did not play well for Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend.

Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane wins the 2015/16 Barclays Golden Boot Award, scoring 25 goals.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has suggested to The Mirror that he could drop Harry Kane from the starting lineup.

Kane is one of the best players at Tottenham and has been a key member of the team over the past two seasons.

However, the England international striker did not have a great Euro 2016 campaign in France in the summer. The 23-year-old struggled to play well for Tottenham against Everton at the weekend.

Kane started the Premier League game at Goodison Park on Saturday and played for the entire 90 minutes. The striker failed to score and did not take a single shot, but he created one chance.

The signing of Vincent Janssen from AZ in the summer transfer window means that Pochettino now does not have to rely on Kane to play all the time.

The Tottenham manager has suggested that he could drop Kane or play him and the Netherlands international striker together in the coming weeks.

“That is my decision always before every game,” Pochettino told The Mirror regarding dropping Kane. “It is about performance, how is the network of the team and how they link.

“I am open but this season we have a lot of competitions, including the Champions League, and a lot of games. Maybe they can play together, or play Vincent or Harry.”

Kane is a very good striker, and despite his performances at the 2016 European Championship in France and against Everton, Tottenham fans should remain optimistic of yet another successful season from the England international.
