Harry Kane entered this Premier League season under a cloud, with the hangover from the Champions League final.

Kane was brought back for the final in Madrid, his first game in weeks, with semi-final hat-trick hero Lucas Moura making way.

 

When Kane failed to come close to scoring and Tottenham suffered defeat, there was heavy criticism for Kane.

In subsequent performances for England at the UEFA Nations League finals in June, Kane did not look himself.

After suffering two ankle injuries in the past year, there were legitimate questions over whether Kane could still be the same prolific player that he had been over the early part of his career.

He has answered those questions pretty emphatically over the first two months of the season.

Kane's excellent form has been lost amid Tottenham's struggles, and he deserves more credit.

Pundits who queued up to question Kane have gone quiet, and are busy laying into Tottenham's poor run of results instead.

This season Kane has scored five goals in eight Premier League games, and two in two Champions League matches.

Four goals in two games for England too have helped him get off to a fast start this season.

The 3-0 loss to Brighton was the first match for club and country he has failed to score or assist in since Tottenham's loss to Newcastle back on August 25, covering an eight game span in between.

If he can keep on scoring, Tottenham's form will turn around. It's easier when you have a prolific marksman leading the line.
