Some people may or may not like Tottenham Hotspur, but one undeniable thing the Spurs have is one best the best strikers in the world in Harry Kane

Although his numbers this season are second to none, the 27 year-old seems to be not be getting the respect he deserves. 

Harry Kane has been directly involved in 30 goals in the Premier League this season (17 goals, 13 assists), while only Robert Lewandowski (41) has scored or assisted more across the top five European leagues in 2020-21.

Kane is currently the Premier League's top goalscorer with 17 goals (along with Mo Salah), while he also leads the assists chart with 13, above the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Bruno Fernandes and Jack Grealish.

Not Enough 

Despite his efforts, Tottenham are currently sixth in the Premier League race, three points away from securing a UEFA Champions League spot next season. 

Kane's future at Tottenham may be in the air this summer though, considering Spurs only real chance to end the trophy drought this season is the Carabao Cup Final against Manchester City at Wembley

Aside from his great performances in the league, Kane has also performed well in the cups, recording 10 goals and three assists in 13 games played across three different competitions (Europa League, FA Cup & Carabao Cup).

Harry Kane's way to evolve his game and being not only a striker but an all-around player, dropping into the midfield multiple times, has been the reason why he has been successful individually this season.

Recently, Spurs manager Jose Mourinho praised Kane's way to approach the game, and spoke about his professionalism. 

"I have been lucky enough to work with players with great ambitions and it is not possible to have a career like mine without players with ambition." Mourinho said. "He [Kane] has that (ambitions), [I have] no doubt that of course he wants to win matches, win trophies, [he is] totally committed with the club and the national team.

"He is a very good example of a top professional and he is a great example for everybody."
