Tottenham star Harry Kane insists he is not fazed by the constant pressure after he ended his goalless run on Saturday. The England star has been under microscope once again this season after going on a five-match goalless run for club and country.
Kane netted from the penalty spot during the 2-1 win over Brighton as Spurs ended their three-match losing streak.
His goal means he is now level with Jermain Defoe on 143 goals for the club and Kane insists he is determined to improve.
Despite the critics continuing to pick at his game, Kane insists he can handle being in the spotlight.
“I would 100 per cent rather have the focus than not have it,” said Kane.
“I have scored three goals this season which is not terrible. Obviously when you set standards in other seasons and other games, people will talk if you do not reach them and I am the first to analyse my game and see what I could do better.
“Of course I feel I could have done better in most games this season. Brighton was probably the first game I was truly happy with my all-round performance.
“I felt good. As a striker you are going to be under the microscope more than everyone else. That is the life of the striker. You will get chances, miss chances, feel you can hold it up better. All you can do is look forward and try and improve.”
