Harry Kane has criticized his performance early in the season, stressing that he is poised to hit top form, despite not scoring a Premier League goal so far this season.
Five of Kane’s six club goals have arrived in the Europa Conference League, while his only other goal was in the Carabao Cup against Wolves.
His slump comes after he failed to secure a transfer to champions Manchester City in the summer, leading to suggestions that his struggle stemmed from disappointment at not leaving Tottenham.

But Kane, who finished the international break without a goal, said: ‘I know there’s been a lot of talk about me. I am my own biggest critic. I put the most pressure on myself to deliver.
“I work as hard as I can for the team. When the opportunities arise, I’m confident I’ll get rid of them.
“It was the first game in 15 (World Cup qualifiers) that I didn’t score. Not the end of the world.’
Kane added: “There’s a lot of noise around me, but it’s how you deal with it.
There may have been no appearances for club and country, but there is no need to panic. I have confidence in myself and the teams I play in.’
