Tottenham tipped to make major Kane change after what pundit has 'heard'
Tottenham may have to play two strikers to get the best out of Harry Kane, according to Gabby Agbonlahor.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Aston Villa and England attacker suggested Dane Scarlett could be the answer for Nuno Espirito Santo.
Kane continued his goal drought in the Premier League game against Arsenal at the weekend as he continues his search for his first league goal of the season.
As quoted by Sky Sports earlier this month (September 21) Nuno Espirito Santo insisted Kane’s form in front of goal was a collective issue and not a problem with the player.
Asked for his assessment of Kane’s recent performances, Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley: “You’ve got to look at what they’ve got available.
“I’ve heard a lot about the young lad Scarlett. Maybe Nuno may have to try a new formation and try and get a striker next to him.

“I don’t think he should be dropped. He showed against Wolves in the cup that he’s got the form.
“Sometimes, as a player, I’ve been there, you can’t hide your frustrations. You go through that phase and you just have to get out of it.
“It will be a tough game for them against Aston Villa on Sunday. Aston Villa are in good form, will probably play a back three and he’ll find it tough. You’d back the Villa defence on current form.”
Kane has gone five Premier League appearances without a goal this term.
That is his longest barren run at the beginning of a season since the 2015-16 campaign where he did not find the net until the seventh game.
