Paul Merson feels sorry for Kane amid Tottenham's struggles
Paul Merson has admitted sympathy for misfiring Harry Kane.
The former Arsenal player and Sky Sports pundit has had his say on what’s going on at Tottenham and the Kane situation.
However, Merson has claimed that Kane cannot do things on his own and needs some help from his Spurs teammates.
In his Sky Sports column, Merson said:
“Any forward in the world will tell you he is only as good as the service he gets and he is not getting any service at the moment.”
“It is a hard one – I feel for him in a way because as a centre forward, you have to get the service, and if not, you are not scoring goals.”
“Crystal Palace, no shots and no touches in the opposition box and then on Sunday, he tries hard, runs back and via his enthusiasm, he ends up giving a goal away.”
“But he cannot do it on his own, he is not a school captain.”

Merson makes some fantastic points.
Kane may be struggling for form at the moment but the responsibility for results shouldn’t solely fall on him.
The 28-year-old is one of the best players in the world, let alone the Premier League.
He has to get back to grips with playing football for Spurs and no doubt he will.
However, until he finds his feet again and starts scoring goals then he’ll continue to be the subject of criticism and questioning.
Nuno Espirito Santo will have to get a tune out of Kane soon.
Goals are inevitable with the England man and the sooner he can start scoring again the better.
