West Ham United vice-chairman Karren Brady has told The Sun that she thinks Harry Kane was 'anonymous' for Tottenham against the Hammers last weekend.
Last Saturday, struggling West Ham made the short trip to White Hart Lane in search of a vital three points, and looked to be heading towards a win as Michail Antonio and Manuel Lanzini scored either side of Harry Winks' goal for Spurs.
With West Ham leading 2-1 in the dying stages, Slaven Bilic's men just needed to see the game out – but failed to do so. Heung-min Son's cross set up Harry Kane for a late equaliser, and Kane then scored the winner from the penalty spot just seconds later as Son was brought down by Havard Nordtveit.
The result means West Ham are still hovering precariously above the relegation zone ahead of Sunday's game against Manchester United, whilst after Tuesday's defeat to Monaco, the victory is Spurs' only win in the last nine games.
Tottenham take on Chelsea in the Premier League today, and West Ham's vice-chairman Karren Brady has commented on star striker Kane after his performance against the Hammers.

Speaking to The Sun, Brady has suggested that Kane can completely undo a team's game plan, much like rival Premier League strikers such as Diego Costa, Sergio Aguero, Jermain Defoe and Jamie Vardy.
Brady did though suggest that Kane was 'anonymous' against West Ham, before transforming defeat into victory with his two late goals, summing up just what a 20-goal striker – something West Ham lack – can do.
Brady added that Kane could win Tottenham the title with his goals this season despite their recent struggles, just like Vardy did for Leicester City last term.

“Like any 20-goal-a-season striker, as soon as Harry Kane has a glimmer of a chance the opposition’s whole game plan can be undone,” said Brady. “It happens with Diego Costa, Sergio Aguero and Jermain Defoe and it won the Premier League with Jamie Vardy last season. Kane was anonymous in West Ham’s match with Spurs and then, in two minutes before the end, transformed defeat into victory.”
“Boss Mauricio Pochettino is close to being accurate in his assessment that he is “one of the world’s best strikers”. He could yet do a Vardy and win the title for his team,” she added.
