Tottenham striker Harry Kane says he has had to adjust his game to cope with the extra attention he is getting from defenders.
Kane jointly tops the Premier League goalscoring charts this season with 19, level with Leicester’s Jamie Vardy who plays against Newcastle on Monday night, but he had a lean spell at the start of the season and admits he has been forced to adapt.
With eight games to go this season the 22-year-old is on course to better last season’s tally.
“Obviously there was a lot of talk at the start of the season and, as I’ve always said before, the top players in the world find a way to get around it and score 20, 30 goals season in, season out,” Kane told reporters at Villa Park.
“That’s what I want to be. I want to be one of the top strikers and I know I have to find ways to score goals because there is probably more attention than there was last year.
“I’m very happy to be where I am now. There are still quite a few games to go, so hopefully I can keep scoring and see how many goals I can get between now and the end of the season.”
