Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson has told BBC Sport that he needs a player like Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane.

Kane scored Tottenham’s goal in their 1-1 draw with Palace, as he once again showed his brilliant finishing ability.

Kane took one quick touch before blasting the ball beyond Vicente Guaita in the Palace goal.








And although Hodgson didn’t think Kane was particularly involved for Tottenham, he still thought the striker did a brilliant job. 

“We need some players who can do what Harry Kane did for Tottenham today,” Hodgson admitted. “That is touch the ball half a dozen times, produce five good passes and score a goal. That’s what we don’t have!”

For Palace to find a player of Kane’s quality will be practically impossible, but it is likely that they will bring in a new striker this summer.

Kane, meanwhile, will be hoping to carry his fine form under Jose Mourinho into next season.

Kane now has scored 13 goals in 17 games since Mourinho arrived at Tottenham, and looks to be playing right at the top of his game.
