Tottenham Hotspur legend Garth Crooks has praised Harry Kane for his “sparkling form” and his “exquisite finish” in Spurs’ last game.
The 27-year-old has been nothing short of incredible this season, with 19 goals and 14 assists from 27 appearances under his belt.
In addition, Kane’s partnership with Son Heung-min has gone to the next level, the two playing superbly in tandem and notching up goals and assists for each other by the hatful.
The England captain netted Tottenham’s second against Sheffield United, charging through and planting a low shot into the bottom right corner not long before the break.
He also weighed in with several efforts in the second half and came close to getting an assist as he played Son through, only for the latter to hit the woodwork.
Kane’s efforts put him in Crooks’ latest Premier League Team of the Week alongside Tanguy Ndombele.
“Tottenham’s 1-1 draw at home against Fulham wasn’t that impressive, unlike Harry Kane’s diving header, but make no mistake the victory away at Sheffield United was as good as it gets,” he wrote on BBC Sport.
“It may have been the way Mourinho set his team up that may have had something to do with it. Conceding one goal is bad enough for Mourinho but he’s quite entitled to collect all the points if you score three goals away from home.
“Kane was in sparkling form and produced the most exquisite finish to put Spurs 2-1 up against the Blades, who are becoming increasingly desperate for points. Spurs may not be good enough to win the title but they look capable of finishing in the top four.”
It’s frightening to see just how Kane is developing under Jose Mourinho – not only is his goal tally as good as ever, but his assist tally is also shooting right up and his overall play is simply unbelievable.
Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson recently claimed that Kane is on the way to becoming the best player in the world given he’s now doing what Kevin De Bruyne does, on top of his usual No. 9 duties.
Factor in his defensive contributions and we’re talking arguably the most complete footballer in recent times – hopefully this season the £200,000-a-week star can finally get his hands on major silverware, for club and for country.
