Noel Whelan claims Tottenham striker Harry Kane proved he is “one of the best strikers in the world” with his performance against West Ham on Sunday.
The former Leeds and Coventry striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent, said that the 27-year-old “is unstoppable in that kind of form” and makes a “huge difference” to Jose Mourinho’s side.
Kane scored two and assisted another as Spurs drew 3-3 with London rivals West Ham after a late collapse at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The England captain’s nine appearances across all competitions this season have yielded 10 goals and eight assists, including a brace in the 6-1 thrashing of Manchester United before the international break.
Whelan is adamant that Kane is rediscovering his best form in the 2020/21 campaign.
“Absolutely brilliant,” he told Football Insider.
“That is the Harry Kane that we know and love. That is what makes him one of the best strikers in the world.
“His movement, his ability, his positioning. He can score from any area. That is top class. It was fantastic to watch.
“He seems like he is coming back into his best form. If Tottenham are going to push that top four they need Harry Kane in that sort of form. He makes a huge difference to that side when he is in the groove.
“He is one of these players who, without him in your side, you are losing 25 per cent of your goal threat. Unreal. He is unstoppable in that kind of form.”
