Break the routine with the 7daymeal plan

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has rejected claims that Harry Kane is ‘burnt out’.

The Argentine believes that when a striker is not scoring, people are so desperate to find a reason why not.

Pochettino believes that Kane will soon enough return to top form having netted just twice in four games this season.

Despite netting his first goal in August, Harry Kane’s start to the season has been criticised by many individuals.

The 25-year-old has scored just twice in six appearances for club and country this season.

His overall performances have also proven to be somewhat underwhelming.

However, Pochettino has quashed claims that the striker is suffering from fatigue.

Pochettino told Sky Sports:

“I think he is fit. I do not read and do not listen to what is going on around. 

“For me, there is no doubt that he is one of the best strikers in the world.

“When a striker does not fill the net and does not score goals, always you need to find some reason why but I think he is fit.

“It is only time before he starts to score goals.

“For us, Harry Kane is so important. I have no doubt that he is one of the best players in England and in Europe.”

Tottenham require Kane to return to top form soon.

The North Londoners face a tricky week in which they take on Liverpool and Inter Milan.

First up is Jurgen Klopp’s side in the Premier League.

The Reds have claimed 12 points from a possible 12 this season with their back-line proving to be near impenetrable.

Liverpool have conceded just once in four games and Kane will need to be firing to break them down at Wembley.

Spurs then kick-off their Champions League campaign in tough style at the San Siro.
