Garth Crooks raves about ‘extraordinary’ Harry Kane during Tottenham win

The Spurs talisman created the chance for Son to score a vital winner.

Garth Crooks named Harry Kane in his BBC Sport Team of the Week for his display in Tottenham’s 1-0 win over Burnley at Turf Moor.

The ex-Spurs fan favourite was in awe of the England captain who once again claimed an assist for Son-Heung min to score a crucial goal.

It’s the 29th time the pair have contributed for each other to score with the duo closing in on the record of 36 held by Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba.

Kane was instrumental once again for Tottenham and he appears to be thriving in a slightly different role under Jose Mourinho.

Crooks was certainly impressed and named him alongside Patrick Bamford and Sadio Mane in his Team of the Week.

On Kane’s performance, he told BBC: “It may have been Son Heung-min who scored Tottenham’s winner at Burnley, but it was Kane who them the match.

“His performance at Turf Moor was nothing short of brilliant. The header off the line with Hugo Lloris beaten was quite extraordinary. I can’t ever remember seeing a striker with such natural defensive instincts.


“It was his header at the other end that found Son free in the box to convert. The two strikers are forging what can only be described as a telepathic understanding on the pitch.”

TBR View – Kane and Son proving poetry in motion

Kane, 27, is massive for Tottenham and his presence in the attack is enough to send shivers down the spines of opposition defenders.

His partnership with Son has been a joy to watch just lately and the duo is hardly the best currently playing in the Premier League.

Kane has scored 198 goals for Spurs in 297 games, with 10 goals and nine assists already to his name this season.

Silverware will be on Kane’s agenda next and under Mourinho, he appears to be enjoying his football.

With the England star and Son in this sort of form, you wouldn’t bet on Spurs ending their trophy drought this season.
