Ex-Tottenham Hotspur defender describes Kane as a ‘genius’

The shine on Tottenham Hotspur’s season so far has faded over the last few weeks.

The club’s chances of winning the Premier League title have dwindled due to falling 15 points adrift of leaders Manchester City.

The gap could raise to 18 if Pep Guardiola’s side defeat neighbours Manchester United at Old Trafford later this afternoon.

Tottenham’s biggest hopes of silverware this season are the FA Cup and Champions League, in which they surprised the football world by topping the group ahead of holders Real Madrid.

A winless run of four games in the league may have left some fans feeling nervous for Saturday’s match against Stoke City at Wembley.

However, Spurs managed to get back to winning ways with a 5-1 thumping over Mark Hughes’s team.

Harry Kane nabbed two goals, while Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-min also got on the scoresheet.

So far this season, Kane has found the back of the net 18 times in 20 appearances in all competitions.

After the match, former Tottenham defender Graham Roberts took to Twitter to shower Spurs’ star man with praise after reading through the striker’s impressive statistics for 2017.
