Peter Crouch makes Harry Kane claim

Tottenham Hotspur sanctioned the departure of Harry Kane earlier this summer, and Peter Crouch has claimed they are not missing him yet.

Harry Kane joined German champions Bayern Munich, but Tottenham have excelled without him so far. Ange Postecoglou’s men have been hugely impressive in the Premier League, and former Tottenham striker Peter Crouch claims that Spurs have not missed their former talismanic striker.

“He has taken that 10 shirt from Harry Kane and it looks like he’s kind of made for it really, it looks like he loves the responsibility,” The host said on the 90min podcast.

“Yeah, exactly right and the thing is what is so good about Spurs at the moment is that nobody is talking about Harry Kane really,” Crouch said.

Spurs were expected to struggle in the absence of the 30-year-old. But Postecoglou has managed to improve Tottenham as a unit, and they have been very efficient going forward. Even though Brazilian international Richarlison has failed to score goals consistently, Tottenham have done well as a team in front of the goal.

The Brazilian was expected to replace Kane as the club’s first-choice striker this season, and it remains to be seen whether he can regain his form and confidence. He has not been able to live up to the expectations since his big-money move from Everton.

The fact that Tottenham are flying high without Kane shows that they have a talented squad at their disposal, and Postecoglou’s predecessor failed to get the best out of his players.

Tottenham missed out on UEFA Champions League qualification last season, and they will be desperate to get back into the top four and compete for domestic trophies this year. They have shown their quality against the top teams so far, and it remains to be seen whether they can build on their impressive start to the season and put together a winning run now.

Spurs could still use a couple of quality additions, and it will be interesting to see if they decide to dip into the January transfer window and plug the gaps in their squad. They have done well to improve their midfield and defence during the summer transfer window. They should look to bring in a reliable goalscorer in January. A player who can share the goal-scoring burden with Richarlison would be ideal.
