Tottenham fans have been calling for Harry Kane to become their new club captain after his mesmerising performance in their Premier League victory over Southampton at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday.

Kane, who has worn the armband for England since May 2018, is currently Spurs’ vice-captain, and has experience of captaining his boyhood club in the past when Hugo Lloris has either been injured or suspended.

The 26-year-old continued his fine goalscoring form for club and country in 2019/2020 – his first-half winner against the Saints was his tenth goal in as many matches and his sixth in eight matches for Spurs this season.

But it wasn’t just Kane’s goal that caught the eye, his all-round determined display, which was easily his best performance in a Tottenham shirt this season, saw fans take to Twitter, pleading for the England striker to replace Lloris as captain in the near future, especially after the Frenchman’s howler gifted Danny Ings an equaliser.
