Fans mock pundit for claiming Sturridge is on par with Kane

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane is the talk of the town right now for his impressive goalscoring displays.

The England international is proving that he can shine on both the domestic and European stage this season having netted 11 goals in all competitions so far.

Last week, the 24-year-old scored his sixth hat-trick of 2017 in a convincing win over Champions League opponents APOEL.

At the weekend in a 4-0 rout over Huddersfield Town, Kane added two more goals in his Premier League tally.

A debate about the striker’s world-class credentials has been running over the past few days, and now pundit Danny Murphy has made some interesting claims.

While speaking on talkSPORT, the retired midfielder claimed that Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is “up there” with Kane in terms of ability.

The 28-year-old has scored just 16 Premier League goals in 51 appearances since the start of the 2014-15 season.

Injury woes have contributed to the forward’s lack of minutes on the pitch, but when he is 100% he is not first choice for manager Jurgen Klopp.

In contrast, Kane is arguably one of the first names on the teamsheet for Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.

Football fans of various clubs ridiculed Murphy for his comparison.
