Coral’s bet of the day
- Kane scored the final goal against the Foxes last time in the FA Cup
- The England striker also netted the last goal against Sunderland previously
- Striker has backing of his manager
Kane in fantastic form
Having burst onto the scene last year with Spurs scoring 31 goals across all competitions, questions were asked as to whether he could transfer his form into this season at such a young age, however, at 22 he is beginning to show that he can.
With 15 goals in 29 appearances so far this term, Kane has carved a timely recent reputation for finishing strongly in games and scoring last, as he did against Sunderland last time out and Leicester in the first leg of the third round at White Hart Lane.
Furthermore, both goals were penalties, however, his scoring repertoire includes many types of goals.
Pochettino compares Kane to Brazilian duo
Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is that impressed with his striker that he has even compared him to Samba sensations Ronaldo and Romario for the fear factor they brought out of defenders.
“I was a player and when you have in front of you Ronaldo or Romario your challenge is to fight with them, you need to be ready 200%, not 100 per cent,” Pochettino said.
“It’s like when Harry Kane started, the opponents would say he is a youngster. Now he is a top class player. It is always a challenge for centre-backs to try to stop him, it’s a big challenge, it has changed how they see us, how they look at us.”
While Kane may have some way to go until, he reaches their level, Kane is well fancied to net the last in this FA Cup tie and possibly the deciding goal against the Foxes.
