Harry Kane believes he is again hitting peak form in time for the festive period and that the busy schedule will benefit him as he bids to overtake Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the race for the Golden Boot, reports ESPN.
Kane scored eight goals in six matches last December, including back-to-back hat tricks against Burnley and Southampton. One year on, the 25-year-old has struck eight times in his last 10 games for club and country, including the early opener in Wednesday’s 3-1 home win over Southampton.
While some Spurs fans will be concerned about Kane’s workload and the risk of fatigue, the striker believes he is most dangerous when the games are coming thick and fast.
Deliberate isolation. Petty feuds. Constant turmoil. The Manchester United manager wouldn’t have it any other way, writes Sam Borden.
Is there such a thing as peaking too early? Given all that Kylian Mbappe, just 19, has accomplished, we might soon find out.
“This is the sort of period I like, where you get into a rhythm, get into a routine,” he said. “I feel in good shape and I feel I’m at my best when I’m in my rhythm.
“You don’t think too much. If you miss a couple of chances you get back quickly. You know where the spaces are, you know where the ball’s going to drop. “It’s these sorts of periods in my career where I’m at my best. It might be down to fitness as well — when teams are tired I exploit the space a bit more.
In December and January I hit top form, and winning games is important in this period as well.”
