Graham Roberts delivers verdict on Tottenham 23-year-old, backs for award
By Dominic Toner
Graham Roberts claims that Tottenham’s Harry Kane is the best striker in the UK and has urged him to go win the Premier League golden boot.
Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that the 23-year-old will be back in the Spurs squad on Saturday for the Premier League clash against Watford, as cited by the club’s official Twitter account.
He has missed the last three games with an ankle injury, but his side have accumulated maximum points without him.
Kane’s return will be a huge boost for the north London club, though, as they aim to close the seven-point gap to Premier League leaders Chelsea.
Ex-Spurs player believes Kane’s return to the squad ahead of Watford is brilliant news and has hailed his talents.

Kane has been in great goal scoring form so far this campaign, netting 24 goals in 29 appearances across all competitions.
The England international has struck 19 times in the Premier League and that has him placed second in the race for the golden boot.
He is currently two goals behind Everton’s Romelu Lukaku, but Kane’s 100 minutes per goal ratio is superior.
Kane will be hoping to play a role in the weekend’s fixture against Watford and crank up the pressure on London rivals Chelsea, who they face in the FA Cup semi-final later in April.
