Tim Sherwood suggested on Premier League Productions (28/02/21 at 3:00 pm) that Tottenham striker Harry Kane wasn’t happy with Gareth Bale after two minutes on Sunday because he’s ‘taking his goals off him’
Spurs recorded a 4-0 win against Burnley, with Bale opening the scoring after his late run off the ball resulted in the Welshman netting his first of the game.
Just behind Bale was Kane, who would have had a tap in of his own had the Real Madrid loanee not scored.
Sherwood and Highbury legend Ian Wright praised Spurs for getting off to such a great start yesterday, as the former made the claim about Kane and Bale.
“Dream start for Gareth,” said Sherwood. “It’s a fantastic delivery (from Son).”
Wright added: “From the first minute this is what you want. You don’t want to have too many touches. You just want something when someone plays it through and you can just finish it. Bam! The first couple of minutes. It’s brilliant for him.”
Sherwood added: “Ben Mee has to stay where he is. He comes up. It’s foolish for him to do that. If he stays where he is then he deals with the cross.
“He (Bale) made a good run. It’s really interesting there who’s behind him. He’s taken up. He’s got someone else who wants to score goals now. Harry Kane is standing behind him. He’s taking his goals off him. He won’t be happy with that, Harry.”
Both Kane and Son need someone to take the attacking workload and responsibility off their shoulders.
In previous years, Christian Eriksen would provide that spark, but he’s no longer here.
Dele Alli would channel his inner-Frank Lampard and score goal after goal. But his form has fallen off a cliff.
But with Bale getting back to his best, Alli being given more game time, Jose Mourinho might just have a forward line to dread going into these final few months of the season.
