Frank Lampard says Spurs have a 'world-class' talent in their ranks
Spurs striker Harry Kane is a “world-class” player who “always proves people wrong”, Frank Lampard has told the All to Play For Podcast.
The England legend has also tipped the Tottenham talisman to break his scoring duck in this weekend’s Premier League trip to Arsenal.
Kane was linked with a move to Manchester City in the summer.
However, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy resisted the Premier League champions’ attempts to sign the striker.
In the end, the England captain stayed put at N17, but he’s not got off to the best start in the league this season.
He’s still without a top-flight goal to his name after four appearances in the league, though he has netted three times in all competitions.
Kane goes into Sunday’s North London derby on the back of a goal in the Carabao Cup third-round penalty shootout win at Wolves.
And Lampard, when asked who could open the scoring in the meeting between Arsenal and Tottenham, named the 28-year-old.
“I don’t think you can look past Harry Kane can you?” said the former Chelsea and England ace.
“I know people are talking about him not being in the best of form, but that’s when he always proves people wrong.
“He is clearly a world-class player, undoubtedly so.
“In the Euros, people were on him in those first games and then he comes good and becomes the talisman we know he is.
“I think it’s harsh, he had to play the Euros, then he had his break and then he had the thing about whether or not he’d move, which would have affected him mentally.
“Did anyone think he’d hit the ground running straight away? Maybe this weekend is the time he does it.
“He’s brilliant, I’ve got a lot of time for Harry Kane.”
