Tottenham fans are losing patience with Harry Kane, as their star striker dropped yet another subpar performance in Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to West Brom.
Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs fell to a 1-0 defeat at the Hawthorns on Saturday, and fans are hugely disappointed with the performance of Harry Kane.
The 24 year-old has scored just once since the infamous goal claim, and it seems the media reaction combined with his ankle injury has had an effect on his form.
Kane injured his ankle in the 4-1 win at Bournemouth before the international break, and was rushed back to feature off the bench in the win at Chelsea.
The England striker has struggled with ankle issues before, and it certainly seems like he might have returned a little too soon.
Kane has been the hero of Tottenham fans pretty much week in week out since he first broke into the team, but has picked the worst possible time to go on the first dry spell of his career, with performance levels dropping right before the summer World Cup.
Despite scoring three times since the ankle injury, Kane’s overall performances have been slow and ponderous, and he came closer to scoring in his own goal than in West Brom’s on Saturday.

That was largely a mess. Harry Kane shouldn’t be starting football matches in this state and definitely shouldn’t be playing 90 minutes. Too many touches, too many heavy touches and too slow on the move.

Starting to think he's turing into the player we all thought he was!
