Harry Kane has admitted that he gets fed up at being judged solely on his goalscoring exploits for Tottenham Hotspur and not on his all-round game.

The red hot striker has plundered 13 goals in all competitions for Spurs this season - a feat all the more impressive given that, yet again, Kane failed to notch a single goal in the month of August.

Ahead of the north London derby clash with Premier League rivals Arsenal on Sunday, Kane sat down with Gunners legend and pundit Thierry Henry to conduct an interview for Sky Sports.

Quizzed by the former goalscorer about his form in front of goal, the 24-year-old revealed that he considered it "unfair" that punters only rated forwards and attackers on their end product.

Kane said: “Yes, I think so (that I get annoyed). There was a stage a couple of seasons ago when I wasn't scoring goals and people said I was not the same player because of the dry spell.

“But I was playing really well and was pleased with how I was playing – I was holding it up well and bringing others into play.

“That's why the gaffer never thought about dropping me. Then I went on this goalscoring run and probably wasn't playing as good as I could but because I was scoring it covered things up and people thought I was a great striker again.

“Nowadays you are judged on goals, which isn't always fair, but unfortunately that's part of the game.”

Spurs make the short journey across the capital to take on Arsenal at Emirates stadium in Saturday's lunchtime kick off knowing a win would put them seven points ahead of Arsene Wenger's men.

And Kane went on to state that it was imperative that Mauricio Pochettino's Lilywhites started to win games on the road against their title rivals if they harboured hopes of lifting a first league trophy in over 55 years.

He added: "It's important for us to start beating the big teams away. Not just Arsenal, but all of the top six. We've done very well at home against them in recent years, but if we want to be challenging for the title, these are the games we need to win away from home.

"We're going to try and win the game, we always do, but it will be tough. We need to go and play the way we play against them at home, and find a way to win."
