Sky Sports pundit: This is how Tottenham have proved me wrong
By Dominic Toner
Andy Walker has admitted that he has been proved wrong by Tottenham’s ability to cope without Harry Kane during his injury.
The 23-year-old recently missed three games due to an ankle knock and watched his Spurs side record a 100 per cent winning record without him.
They managed victories over Southampton, Burnley and Swansea, which have been a part of their seven-game winning run.
Kane managed to make his comeback at the weekend during a 4-0 win against Watford and came on as a second-half substitute.
Sky Sports pundit Walker claims he has been surprised by the depth in Spurs’ squad and feels that attacker Heung-Min Son was a great replacement for Kane.

“I have been proved wrong for thinking there may be a bit of a drop in Spurs’ performances with Harry Kane out of the team,” Walker told Sky Sports. “They were excellent as Heung-Min Son proved a capable replacement for Kane by scoring a couple of goals.”
Pochettino has several attackers at his disposal this season and has preferred trio Kane, Dele All and Christian Eriksen.
Kane has scored 24 goals in just 30 appearances for the north London club this campaign and has been in sensational form in front of goal.
Meanwhile, Son has had to make do with a more fringe role, but has still scored 18 goals in 39 appearances across all competitions.
Pochettino also recruited forward Janssen in the summer and he has chipped in with just five goals.
Kane will now hope to lead Spurs to the title as they try to make up the seven-point deficit to current Premier League leaders Chelsea.
