PLAYERS TO WATCH
|Kevin Ball selects his players to watch tomorrow night|
Anyone who has watched football for the past 30 years will know the name of Kevin Ball whether they support Sunderland or not. Born in Hastings in Kent he was a Sunderland stalwart and is now their senior professional development coach.
He has run the rule over Spurs for the official Sunderland website ahead of our game tomorrow and has picked out four players to watch, Harry Lane, Dele Alli, Mousa Dembele and Toby Alderweireld.
HARRY KANEWhen I cast my eye over Tottenham Hotspur’s squad list, it’s great to see so many young British players they have coming through. Starting with Harry Kane in this week’s edition of my ones to watch, the striker has impressed me because he hasn’t had a straightforward development. I’ve mentioned that before, but I like the fact it hasn’t been plain sailing for him because that has served him well in the long run. A loan spell at Leicester City and a few other clubs saw him earn his stripes and for me that highlights his desire to develop. While chances were initially limited at Spurs, Kane took the one he had with both hands and is now one of the country’s leading strikers. He has excellent movement and can finish with both feet - you only have to look at his goalscoring record to see that with 13 goals in just 17 Premier League appearances.
