This is another key battle that will be crucial in deciding the outcome of the match. Harry Kane has been one of the best strikers in England for the last few seasons and the amount of goals he has scored backs that up, he is coming up against a very professional defender in Dann and I think the England striker will find it harder than many anticipate. Kane was off the pace in the Euros and didn’t look too great against Everton so he’ll be counting down the minutes until kick-off to redeem himself and ensure Spurs gets the points. Dann is a very strong no nonsense defender and Kane will certainly have a physical battle on his hands on Saturday. The Palace man will have to be on his game to stop the clinical brilliant Harry Kane getting a sniff at goal, as he only needs one to put the ball in the back of the net. Kane certainly has all the tools in his box to outclass any defence in England, but I feel Dann will give him a very tough afternoon when the two sides meet tomorrow. Dann will need to play on Kane’s current lack of confidence following a poor Euro 2016 performance.
