Gary Lineker claimed on Twitter that it was always going to be a matter of time before Harry Kane returned to top form.

The England forward scored the decisive goal in Tottenham’s 1-0 win against Sunderland in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

The 23-year-old benefited from some sloppy defending by Papy Djilobodji as he failed to clear inside the box and left Kane to convert a simple finish.

Spurs dominated the match at White Hart Lane and were unfortunate not to add more gloss to the scoreline.

Kane followed up his goal against Stoke with his second of the season and will be expected to replicate the impressive form he showed last year.

Match of the Day host Lineker, who also played at Spurs during his career, took to his personal Twitter account to say Kane is too good not to be scoring goals.

“Harry’s back,” he said. “You can’t keep a really good goal-scorer down for too long.”

Kane won the golden boot last season as he notched up 25 league goals to help Spurs finish third behind Leicester and Arsenal.

He has now made 133 appearances for Spurs since developing from the youth set up, scoring 66 goals and supplying 11 assists.

Spurs continued their unbeaten start to the new campaign and moved up to third in the table.

However the day ended on a negative note as Kane, Mousa Dembele and Eric Dier all left the field injured.
