Andy Gray: Why Harry Kane can inspire Tottenham to victory over West Ham

Andy Gray believes Harry Kane holds the key to Tottenham Hotspur’s chances of beating West Ham on Sunday.

The north London side have the opportunity to move to within a point of fourth-placed Arsenal after Arsene Wenger’s side suffered a 2-1 loss to West Brom on Saturday afternoon.

Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham side are unbeaten in the Premier League since the opening day of the season after a run of 12 games without a defeat.

Former Aston Villa and Everton star Gray reckons Spurs will have too much for Slaven Bilic’s men in Sunday afternoon’s London derby.

“This London Derby looks like there may be goals in between the sides that sit fifth and sixth in the division,” Kane told Paddy Power’s blog.

“Spurs are strong defensively and have only conceded four goals at home but only Arsenal have won more away games than the Hammers.

“Harry Kane is scoring for Spurs again and with their defensive strength they should run out 2-1 winners here. Harry Kan can make it five goals on the trot by hitting the onion bag over the 90 mins.”

Kane has scored five times in his last four Premier League games, including the opener in a 1-1 draw with Arsenal in the north London derby at The Emirates earlier this month.
