  • Harry Kane has just one Premier League goal to his name so far this season 
  • But Tottenham boss Antonio Conte has backed the star to find his scoring form 
  • Conte insisted he is ‘very pleased’ with Kane’s showings despite his poor return 











Tottenham boss Antonio Conte has backed Harry Kane to rediscover his goalscoring form.

The England captain has scored just once in 12 Premier League outings for Spurs this season and has looked a shadow of the player that won the Golden Boot last season.

Conte said: ‘First of all, I’m sure Harry is happy if we win and he doesn’t score. Because Tottenham is the first thought for us and Harry.

‘It’s important to have chances to score and we’re improving a lot in this aspect. I’m sure Harry is going to score many goals.

‘I’m sure he’s going to have a good performance in the same way he had against Brentford against every team we play. I’m very pleased for the way that he’s playing.

‘Then I know the striker wants to score but we want to give him many chances to score. I think we’re on the right path to do this type of situation.’

Conte also says he hopes to speak to captain Hugo Lloris about a new contract soon.

The Frenchman’s deal runs out in the summer, but there has been no hint of a fresh agreement.

‘I’ve just arrived. Only one month. At this moment, for sure, we have many situations to solve,’ Conte said.

‘Hugo is the captain of this team, the French national team and we’re talking about a top goalkeeper. He’s very focused now.

‘He knows very well now we’re trying to do our best. Me as a coach, Hugo as goalkeeper and every player has to perform at a high level.

‘But for sure we’ll have time to speak about him and I consider him an important player for his experience. He’s a good goalkeeper first of all and many years at the club, he showed always great commitment for this club.’
