Harry Kane has proven time and time again that he is not a one-season wonder, but the Tottenham Hotspur striker failed to make an impact in a huge game on Monday night.
Plenty of Liverpool fans would have wanted Mauricio Pochettino’s men to get a result against the North-West outfit in order to help their cause in the Premier League title race.
However, it was not to be as a single goal from Riyad Mahrez inside the first six minutes of the clash at Wembley was enough to give City all three points.
The contest itself was a bizarre one as the teams had to navigate their way on a bobbly surface that still had markings from the NFL game the previous day.
Kane played the full 90 minutes, but he failed to impress as he squandered opportunities and lost the ball a handful of times.
The striker has scored seven goals in 13 outings in all competitions, but he has not struck the back of the net in the league since September 29 in a 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town.

Kane has gone three games in the top flight without scoring, and plenty of Liverpool fans opted to throw criticism his way after watching the Tottenham star struggle against City.

This for me is why Kane isn’t in the top bracket. Games like this he can’t make a difference unless it’s on a plate due him, he can’t make a goal out of nothing.

Kane’s still hungover from the World Cup. How much did he drink?

Kane obviously scores goals but his all round play is garbage.
