Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte thinks Harry Kane is undroppable
The Englishman is experiencing his worst start to a season by bagging just one goal in 12 appearances so far. This is quite surprising for a player who won last season’s Golden Boot award and is usually among the goals.
However, the English captain’s influence has been limited this season, and the lack of bite it offers to the Spurs frontline is clearly visible. Given that he is among Tottenham’s major goalscorers, taking him out of the equation sees the Spurs attack fizz out.
The North London team has only won two of their last five Premier League games. The arrival of Conte has perhaps shaken things up in the dressing; however, the results are yet to come out consistently on the field.
Tottenham are about to enter a busy run of games that could make or break their season. With matches coming thick and fast in the festive season, the onus will be on Conte and his staff to rotate the squad at their disposal, efficiently.
One man who looks set to be undroppable is Harry Kane. Given that Tottenham have no viable alternative to the Englishman, it is understandable.
In a recent press conference, the former Inter manager suggested the 28-year old player’s importance and why at this moment, dropping him is unimaginable.
“If I answer in an honest way, to start a game without Harry now is a bit difficult for me. Honesty, we are talking about an important player for us, an important player for all. Yeah, in this moment, I am answering in this way.”
Tottenham relies on Kane and Son Heung-min for the majority of their goals. Steven Bergwijn and Lucas Merus have their moments but are not reliable options who can be expected to perform consistently.
One can understand why Conte considers Kane to be a constant in his Spurs side for the games to come.
