Harry Kane: ‘I could have done better in most games this season’

Speaking after Tottenham’s 2-1 win over Brighton, Harry Kane has been criticising his own start to the 2018/19 season.

‘I’m the first to analyse my game and see what I could do better’

In Kane’s post-match Brighton interview he stated:

“I would 100 percent rather have the focus [on me] than not have it.

 “I’ve scored three goals this season, which is not terrible.

“When you set standards in other seasons and other games, people will talk if you don’t reach them, and I’m the first to analyse my game and see what I could do better.

“Of course I feel I could have done better in most games this season. This was probably the first game where I was truly happy with my all-round performance.

“It’s the life of the striker. You’ll get chances, miss chances, feel you can hold it up better. All you can do is look forward and try to improve.

“We could have been a bit more clinical. That includes myself and a couple of the other players.

“We had good chances, their keeper made a couple of good saves and it’s disappointing not to get the clean sheet. I thought we deserved that — the defenders and keeper were strong all game.

“But in the Premier League if you don’t put teams away they will find a way to get back. Thankfully we held out.”

Kane’s 2018/19 season

While Kane had become somewhat infamous for not scoring in August, the Spurs striker did put an end to that this season.

Kane drew a blank in Tottenham’s opening game of the season vs Newcastle, in which they won 2-1.

But, Spurs then took on Fulham. They won 3-1 and Harry Kane would bag his first August goal.

Kane would then score and assist in Spurs next game as they beat Manchester United 3-0.

However, Kane would then fail to score against Watford, Liverpool and Inter Milan, missing some good chances in each game.

In Spurs last game, however, Kane did bag as they beat Brighton 2-1.
