Tottenham striker Harry Kane should be out to improve his Crystal Palace record

Tottenham host Crystal Palace on Saturday in the Premier League, as domestic football returns after the international break.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side should now be looking to build on a mixed start to the new campaign and climb up the league table.

The North London club have five points from their opening five league fixtures, but have already picked up draws away to Manchester City and rivals Arsenal.

Spurs are coming up against a Palace team that sit fourth in the table after the opening month and look well organised under manager Roy Hodgson.

Spurs need to try make their home ground a fortress and their talisman Harry Kane will be expected to be central to that.

 

But the 26-year-old doesn’t have the best of individual records against Palace and should have a personal score to settle with them at the weekend.

Kane is fresh off the back of captaining England to two victories in European Championship qualifiers, as he netted a hat-trick against Bulgaria and one goal against Kosovo too on Tuesday night.

The centre-forward has not enjoyed the same success when facing Palace in recent times though and definitely not got on the scoresheet as much as he would like.

He’s someone that has scored 167 goals in 257 first-team appearances for Spurs and is renowned as one of the best strikers in the world.

But he has netted just once in his last seven matches across all competitions against Palace and it’s not a statistic that should sit too well with him.

Kane should be well aware of his personal record against Palace and it should be an incentive to shine against them at the weekend.
