Michael Owen makes prediction about Harry Kane in Tottenham v Everton
The Liverpool FC legend is backing Harry Kane to score twice in Tottenham's clash against Everton at Wembley on Saturday
Michael Owen is tipping Harry Kane to score two goals at Wembley when Tottenham Hotspur host Everton on Saturday afternoon.
The England international scored 39 goals to surpass Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer as the most prolific Premier League player in a calendar year.
Kane scored twice in Tottenham’s 3-0 win against London rivals AFC Wimbledon in the FA Cup third round at Wembley earlier this month.
The 24-year-old striker has netted 26 times in 29 games in all competitions in the 2017-18 season so far.
Tottenham have been putting pressure on fourth-placed Liverpool FC in the race to secure a top four spot and a place in next season’s Champions League.
Everton lost 2-1 to Jurgen Klopp’s side in the Merseyside derby in the FA Cup third round at Anfield last week.
Former Liverpool FC striker Owen is tipping Kane to cause havoc against Everton at Wembley on Saturday afternoon.
“Harry Kane (96) is just two goals away from becoming Spurs’ top scorer in the Premier League with my old England teammate Teddy Sheringham currently ruling the roost on 97,” Owen told BetVictor.
“Kane has scored twice in his last two PL games against Everton. The England striker will become only the seventh player in the history of the competition to score two or more goals against the same opposition in three successive games if he grabs a brace or more at Wembley.
“Everton played well in patches at Liverpool in the FA Cup last time and it will be interesting to see if manager Sam Allardyce gives the exciting Ademola Lookman his head after his Anfield cameo.
“That said Everton have only won one of their last 43 away league games against the “big six” and I cannot see them getting a result in the capital.”
Tottenham will take on Serie A giants Juventus in the Champions League last 16 next month after topping a group containing Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.
Spurs finished in second place in the Premier League table last term after ending up seven points behind eventual champions Chelsea.
Kane scored 29 times in 31 games in the Premier League last term.
