Harry Kane can get back on track against newly promoted Wolves

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane is sure to fancy his chances against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday.

Barring any last minute hitches, the England captain will be recalled to the starting XI by Mauricio Pochettino for the Molineux clash, after sitting out the midweek Carabao Cup victory over West Ham United.

Kane was rested at the London Stadium, with Fernando Llorente deputising and scoring for the Lilywhites.

He’ll be looking forward to returning to action against the Black County club, especially because they are a promoted side.

Kane’s recent record is frightening

Since 2014/15, his first season as a regular first-team starter, Kane has plundered an impressive 25 goals against sides that have been promoted from the Championship, via the official Premier League.

It’s an encouraging record that Kane will take real heart from, having not scored in the Premier League since his brace against Huddersfield Town on September 29. That said, he has notched against Barcelona and PSV Eindhoven since then.

 

Wolves certainly have reason to be fearful of Kane, even despite their stubborn defence.

They have conceded just nine league goals so far, meaning they currently have the fifth-best defensive record in the division.

But Willy Boly, Conor Coady and Ryan Bennett will have to have their wits about them.

Otherwise that stubborn defence will surely be breached by a man who simply loves it when new teams come to town.
