Harry Kane: Tottenham’s talisman

The London- side fell before Brighton Hove Albion at Amex Stadium. Leandro Trossard’s lone goal at the first 45 minutes was all Graham Potter led-side got to conquer Spurs.

Mourinho might be having headaches with the choice of striker to use against Chelsea as none of the five strikers paraded against Brighton performed to the taste of the Portuguese.

Former Real Madrid forward, Gareth Bale bagged his second Premier League appearances against Brighton on return to the club, but things are going sour for the Wale’s International, which he would not be able to fill the void left by Harry Kane.

Former PSG forward, Lucas Moura could only score a goal in 15 Premier League appearances this season. Erik Lamela has played nine times in the league with no goal.

Son Heung-Min has been in blistering form for Spurs, bagging 12 goals in 20 appearances, but Carlos Vinicius, Steven Bergwijn are all in goal drought for the club

Kane has bagged 12 goals and 11 assists in the 2020/21 campaign- no other striker in the club has performed more than the 27-year-old, which the Portuguese is banking on.

From observations, the London-side has been dependent on Kane, which has carried the team since the days of Mauricio Pochettino- hence the club has been lifeless following the absence of the striker.

His recent absence will continue if the club cannot deviate from the one-man team syndrome.

With a major blow suffered by the London club as regards Kane, plus a burst-up that happened with Ivorian defender, Serge Aurier. It might be possible that it will be an adverse effect on the forthcoming matches.
