After his desired move to Manchester City did not happen, Kane has started the season very slowly and is yet to find the net in the Premier League in five appearances.
And today, in the North London derby fixture he is the top scorer in, he didn't offer much at all in Spurs' attack. Kane dropped deep as we often see him do for club and country, but he did not link the play and create anything of note.
In fact, he lost possession a total of 11 times in the 90 minutes - which is more than the amount of successful passes he achieved.
As a result, Kane finished the game with a worrying 46% pass accuracy, four shots, zero chances created and zero dribbles.

The one big chance he had in the second half saw him kill the ball dead with a great first-touch, but rolled the ball wide with the sort of finish you would not normally expect from such a deadly striker.
And he was at fault for the third goal scored by England teammate Bukayo Saka in the first half.
Kane gave the ball away cheaply in the middle of the park and when he ran back to try and make amends, his tackle in the box led to the ball falling back to Saka - who finished smartly across Hugo Lloris with his right foot.

The 28-year-old was the top goalscorer and assister in the Premier League last term but you really would not know it judging by his below-par outing.
Roy Keane was extremely critical of his body language in the 3-0 loss to Chelsea last week and it was a good job he wasn't on the Sky Sports panel this evening.
Meanwhile, Gary Neville claimed "something isn't right with Kane" after another underwhelming display.
"Harry Kane should have scored two or three goals, could've had a penalty," Neville said on Sky Sports.
"He's not right, Harry Kane.
"There's obviously something not right with him at the moment. He doesn't look happy at all.
