‘There is no limit to what Kane can do’ – Tottenham captain has become the best ‘creator’ at the club, says Crouch
October 28, 2020
Peter Crouch says “there is no limit” to what Harry Kane can do, and that the Tottenham captain has become the best “creator” at the club.
The England international headed an Eric Lamela cross straight into the path ofSon Heung-min at the back post, who nodded past Nick Pope in the Clarets’net to earn the visitors all three points.
Jose Mourinho’s side are now two points behind leaders Everton in the top-flight standings, with talk of a title challenge mounting with each passing game.
Kane’s form has inspired Tottenham’s impressive start to the campaign, with the 27-year-old also contributing five goals to their cause while taking his partnership with Son upfront to a new level.
The pair have combined for nine ofSpurs’ 16 goals, taking their overall tally as an attacking duo to 29, which puts them behind onlyChelsea’s Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard as the most deadly partnership in Premier League history.
Kane has been content to drop a bit deeper this season and pick out Son’s runs in the final third, and Crouch has been hugely impressed to see him show off his passing range after so many years of being pegged as atraditional centre-forward.
“There is no limit to what this boy can do,” the former Tottenham forward told PA. “I played with him when he was a young kid at Tottenham and I was in the first team and he has always scored goals and he has always been a finisher.
“He scores every type of goal but when I look at him dropping deep and making those passes, it’s just fantastic to watch and he’s become a creator for Son and it’s mouth-watering when you add (Gareth) Bale in there as well.
“The runs they make are so quick and Kane’s ability to find them is just amazing. He drops deep into the pockets and pick out passes. He is Tottenham’s best goalscorer and also their best creator.”
Crouch is confident that Spurs can challenge for major silverware in 2019-20, but he thinks a run to the glory in the FA Cup is more likely than a tilt at the Premier League crown atthis stage of Mourinho’s project.
“It is a crazy league and it feels like anyone can beat anyone at the moment,” he added. “I would say Manchester City and Liverpool aren’t as strong as they were and other teams have got stronger. It is definitely something to do with fans not being in the ground, which is causing some strange results and lots of goals. The league is up for grabs.
“Can Tottenham win it? I’m not sure but I think they’ve got as good a chance as anyone. City and Liverpool have to be the favourites just because they’ve been the strongest team over the last three years.
