Jamie Carragher hailed Harry Kane as ‘one of the best passers in world football’ after the Tottenham striker’s delightful assist for Son Heung-min’s opener against West Ham.
The England captain started the London clash in fine form with a delightful ball over the top for his team-mate, his seventh assist of the season, before scoring two himself to put Spurs 3-0 up inside 16 minutes.
The 27-year-old picked up the ball deep inside his own half, took one look up to see the run of Son before paying a superb side-footed pass over the top of the West Ham defence into his team-mate’s path who made no mistake with the finish.

The Sky Sports pundit was full of praise for the striker after his influential first half vs West Ham
Kane has long been a prolific goalscorer but has earned plaudits this season for his passing range which has seen him top the assist charts, and Carragher went as far as saying he is one of the best in the game.
‘Harry Kane is one of the best passers in world football I think. I’m not just talking about the assists he’s got in the last few games’, said Carragher whilst co-commentating for Sky Sports.
‘When the balls comes into him his appreciation for where players are is fantastic.’
Graham Souness had similar praise for the game’s opener, saying: ‘It ends up with a centre-forward, what position he’s playing there I don’t know.
‘It’s just precision, great finish from Son. He has one look, it’s delightful.’

For his first goal Kane showed his passing ability once again by initially playing in Lucas Moura on the right before the ball found its way back to him. The striker nutmegged Declan Rice and smashed home outside the box to double their lead.
His third goal will be seen as a more ‘textbook’ Kane goal, heading home past Lukas Fabianski after another impressive assist, laid on that time by Sergio Reguilon.
With Gareth Bale still to be introduced into this Tottenham side, Spurs fans will be hoping there are plenty more Kane assists to come throughout the season.
