‘Not every game’ – former Arsenal player Paul Merson says Tottenham star will not play in every match

    Paul Merson claims that Tottenham striker Harry Kane will not be in the starting lineup as often in the upcoming season.

    The former Arsenal player explained that the Englishman will be able to rest much more than usual. The England player is at great risk of serious injury every game, and he will enjoy more time for recovery with the arrival of the new attacking players.

    “The only issue is that Kane might not play every game this season due to a number of reasons. For starters, his injury-record doesn’t make for good reading and to make matters worse, the 2022 FIFA World Cup is coming up in December, so he could well be rested to stay fit for the whole season.”

    “Additionally, the arrival of Richarlison could see Antonio Conte rotate his star man, so it’ll be really interesting to see how this one pans out.”
