Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has admitted that he is wary of the danger that Harry Kane may pose when his side face Tottenham at Wembley on Sunday.

Hodgson has not held back in raving about the England international and his team-mate Dele Alli, both of whom he managed during his time as Three Lions boss.

Kane has been in sensational form this season for Spurs, scoring 13 goals in 13 appearances across all competitions while Alli has seen his form massively improve in recent weeks, topping it off by netting a brace against Real Madrid on Wednesday.

Palace are rock-bottom of the Premier League going into their fixture against Spurs this weekend and many are expecting Mauricio Pochettino’s side to pile the misery of the lowly Eagles.

Hodgson has admitted that it will be a tough task, especially coming up against the in-form duo of Kane and Alli.

“They have an exceptional centre forward who scores with nearly every touch of the ball, but they’re no one-man team,” he said, as quoted by Palace’s official Twitter account on Friday.

He added: “Harry’s an excellent player. He’s a really good pro. He and Dele are superb footballers, we know how dangerous and how good they are.”

Hodgson’s management of Kane during his time in charge of England will go down in infamy as the striker was constantly selected to take corners and free-kicks at Euro 2016 last summer.

The ex-West Brom and Liverpool boss returned to management with his boyhood club Palace earlier this season after Frank de Boer was stunningly sacked after just four league games.
