Tottenham manager Antonio Conte has said he is 'not worried' by a lack of club goals for Harry Kane, a barren run for the England skipper in stark contrast to his continuing scoring feats for his country.

With Spurs climbing the table under their new Italian boss, Conte said after last week's win against Brentford that Kane's 'commitment, desire and passion, made him very happy.

"It doesn't matter if he scores as long as he plays in this way."

Sunday saw another comfortable victory at home to Norwich but once again a blank in front of goal for Kane.

Raheem Sterling, however, is back in goalscoring form for his club after finding early-season opportunities hard to come by at Manchester City.

He nodded home a Phil Foden cross early in Saturday's win at Watford, a game which also saw the return of Jack Grealish to action after a month out with injury.
