Alan Pardew: This is where I can fault Tottenham striker Harry Kane
By Amir Mir
Former Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew believes Tottenham striker Harry Kane has an inability to head the ball.
The England international scored four goals against Leicester City on Thursday night to take the lead in the Premier League goalscoring charts with one game of the season remaining.
Pardew believes one “fault” of Kane’s is his heading ability as he believes he scores every other type of goal.
Over the course of the season, Kane has found the back of the net on three occasions with his head, including the second of his four goals against the Foxes.
Pardew raved about Kane’s all round game as he stated where he can fault Tottenham’s key man and what he specifically does wrong.

“The fact that he gets all types of goals, he gets goals from outside of the box, goals in the six-yard box, he has just got every type of goal,” Pardew told beinSPORTS, as posted by a Football YouTube account.
“The only thing you would probably fault him on is his heading ability. He doesn’t really power headers in or get great goals from headed balls.”
Despite suffering two big injuries over the course of the season, Kane is on his way to winning back-to-back golden boot awards for the season.
He has struck 26 goals from his 29 league matches this term but did suffer two ankle injuries, most recently between March and April.
The White Hart Lane faithful would perhaps indicate towards one of Kane’s most memorable goals when his brilliant headed goal helped his side beat Arsenal on home soil last season.
Nonetheless, Kane will be looking to confirm his status as the top scorer in the division when his team take on Hull City on Sunday.
