Harry Kane: Tottenham striker without a Premier League goal this season

Tottenham striker Harry Kane says he remains unconcerned by his own goal drought after watching Son Heung-min score twice in the 3-1 win over Qarabag on Thursday night.

Kane was left on the bench and replaced Son on 68 minutes at White Hart Lane, but failed to find the target as his goalless run for Spurs was extended to six games.

The 22-year-old has scored twice for England though, netting in the September wins over San Marino and Switzerland, and he remains calm over his poor run in front of goal.

When asked if was becoming a worry, he said “No, not at all.

“Obviously I came on against Qarabag for 30 minutes. It was a good run-out, good for the fitness. I’ve just got to keep doing what I’m doing. I’m playing well so I’ll keep getting in the right

positions and the chances will come and I’ll take them.”

Kane, who scored 21 Premier League goals last season, also praised new boy Son, who inspired Tottenham to victory, after they fell behind to an early penalty.

“Obviously there’s been a lot of talk but the manager’s happy with his squad,” added Kane.

“Sonny did a great job up there and we’re delighted for him to get the two goals. We’ve got a great squad, a lot of players in a lot of positions so we’ve no worries.

“I’m delighted for him – he played very well. He ran in behind, he got two good finishes and he created a lot as well. We’re all delighted for him, with it being his home debut, so hopefully there’s more to come.”

Kane scored twice for England during the international break, but is without a goal for Tottenham so far this season having notched 21 in the Barclays Premier League last year.

“It is different but when you are playing with players like this and with the team we have got here I am happy to play wherever, even if it’s in goal. I am just happy to be on the pitch,” he added.

“I’m confident in my ability and I can’t thank the fans and the staff and all the players here enough for how they have helped me settle in and the way we have started the season. I can’t thank them enough for how they have helped me settle in and the way I am performing.”
