Harry Kane’s form concerns Jamie O’Hara as he’s not a ‘goal pig’ like Erling Haaland but Tottenham man will love facing next opponents Leicester

    Harry Kane’s performance against Sporting CP on Tuesday night was a huge cause for concern, according to Jamie O’Hara.

    The Tottenham striker drew a blank as his side lost their Champions League clash after two late goals from the Portuguese side.

    That is back-to-back European games without a goal for Kane, who has netted just once in his last four games in all competitions.

    The 29-year-old has started the Premier League season well, with five goals in six games, and has well and truly banished the August hoodoo.

    However, compared to Erling Haaland’s numbers at Man City, Kane’s have not matched up.

    The Norwegian already has 10 Premier League goals, and we will never know just how many the England striker could have got in that City team if he had joined them in 2021.

    Kane’s display against Sporting worried former midfielder O’Hara with his best moments outside the penalty area, including a dangerous cross for Emerson Royal.

    “I have to say, I thought Harry Kane was poor tonight,” he told The Sports Bar. “I’m a huge Kane fan.

    “I know you look at his passing and you see the Hollywood passes he makes, but for me he was off it tonight.

    “His little touches in the box were bouncing up, his first touch was letting him down.

    “I look at Haaland, he’s a goal pig because every single week he’s in and around the six yard box. I don’t see that with Harry Kane.”

    If ever there was an opponent Kane would love to face to get back on track then it would be Leicester City.

    Luckily for him, that’s exactly who Tottenham face in the Premier League on Saturday.

    The striker has scored 19 goals in all competitions against the Foxes over his career, more than against any other single team, with 17 of those coming in the Premier League.

    Only Alan Shearer [20] has netted more against a single team, which was Leeds United.
