Harry Kane is not a “machine” and it is only a matter of time before he is back among the goals, according to Erik Lamela. The under-fire striker endured another frustrating night on Tuesday as Spurs slumped to a late 2-1 Champions League defeat at Inter Milan, doing little to take the focus away from his form and fitness.
The England captain and has now gone five games for club and country without scoring.
He missed a good opportunity at San Siro, one he would have normally gobbled up had he been at his best, but Lamela insists Kane should not be the only player to carry the scoring burden for Spurs.
“Harry is not a machine. He scores a lot. He always scores,” Lamela said.
“Here he didn’t and for two or three games he didn’t. But he will score again.
“It’s not like Harry needs to score every single game. Christian (Eriksen) scored, I scored in the last game. Sonny (Son Heung-min) will score. Lucas (Moura) will score. All the pressure is not on Harry.
“All the attacking players need to score. And that’s it.”
