Harry Kane may have scored in Tottenham Hotspur’s loss to Sheffield United, but once again frustrated the field.
The striker has scored two goals in three games since the Premier League restarted last month, but has yet to really click for himself and his teammates.
He was an isolated character at the front, cut off adrift by a lack of service that put a lot of pressure on every chance that came his way.
This lack of service has never been more evident than when Erik Lamela broke through the center of the field and drew defenders toward him to free up space for Kane.
However, when the midfielder pulled the trigger in an attempt to pass to the attacker, Lucas Moura appeared out of nowhere to get in the way.

Furious Mourinho bites his tongue
That’s not what he said, it’s the way he said it.
Jose Mourinho may have bitten his tongue when asked about the goal denied by Harry Kane in the loss to Sheffield United, but he was clearly not happy with the decision.
That’s perfectly understandable – the ball hit Lucas Moura’s hand after the Spurs player was fouled and VAR ruled as handball unable to do anything about the contact on Moura because it was out of the box.
Mourinho declined to comment on the decision but said he thought the referees were no longer in charge of the matches.
He said, “I can’t because I would be in trouble with the institutions and I want to stop myself and my club, so I cannot be as open as I would like.
“The only thing I can say is now, you know that normally I’m an emotional guy on the bench, in those times, I never complain about the man with the whistle because it’s not plus the referee.
“I disagreed with the decision, complained and went to the fourth official, but the man on the field is the assistant referee.
“Today, the man and the lady with the flags, they were assistant referees, now they are assistants to the assistant referee. The referee is in the office and I think that’s the start of it all. ”

The right-back appeared in about 100 games for the club’s development teams, but was unable to make their way into the configuration of the first team.
He was released this week, ending four years as a full-time academic player.
While some players write long farewell messages, Hinds made his surprisingly short farewell.
