Frank Lampard says Tottenham have an incredible talent in their ranks whose 'threats are many'
Ahead of their trip to Tottenham Hotspur, Everton manager Frank Lampard has praised Spurs star Harry Kane.
The Toffees head to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Monday night hoping to get back to winning ways in the Premier League.
Everton go into the Spurs clash on the back of a 2-0 win over Boreham Wood in the FA Cup fifth round.
Prior to that, the Toffees fell to a controversial 1-0 loss to Manchester City.
The Toffees were left “absolutely incandescent” at Chris Kavanagh’s decision not to penalise Rodri’s seemingly clear handball in the area.
Meanwhile, Tottenham won their last Premier League game – a 4-0 hammering of Leeds – but came unstuck in the FA Cup.
Antonio Conte’s charges laboured against Middlesbrough, who took Spurs to extra time and struck a winner in the 107th minute.
Although Tottenham have struggled for consistency, they have one of the best strikers in the world in Kane.
The 28-year-old has shaken off his early-season woes to get back on the scoring trail.
Against Leeds, Kane got himself a goal and assist, while against Man City, he bagged a brace.
On Friday, Lampard spoke about the threat his Everton charges will be up against in the England captain.
“He’s in great form, incredible form,” the Liverpool Echo quotes the Toffees boss as saying.
“I’ve got so much time for Harry Kane, always have done.
“Humble, captain of England, and his threats are many. We’re playing against a world class No. 9.”
