Should misfiring Kane be dropped? Conte gives his honest view 

Tottenham Hotspur coach Antonio Conte has admitted Harry Kane is undroppable amid the striker's goal drought. 

Kane has struggled in front of the goal this season having netted just 14 goals for club and country. It has become a concern for many but Conte insists he is pleased with Kane admitting it is difficult to drop the England international. 

"Honestly, I don't see this team starting without Harry," he said. 

On Kane's overall contribution, Conte said, "If I answer in an honest way, to start a game without Harry now is a bit difficult for me."


"I always like to be honest with my players, and if I wasn't satisfied with Harry's performances, for sure I would tell him, but he is playing well and doing fantastic work for the team."

"I know that, for strikers, it is vital to score, but at the same time we have to think first of Tottenham, what is best for Tottenham, and what is important for us if Harry scores is to take three points."

"A player like Harry can always solve the game because he has fantastic quality, he is a complete player, a real top player, and I'm honestly not worried about him."

Kane is expected to lead the line on Sunday when the sixth-placed Spurs take on Norwich City at home.
