Diego Maradona had some brilliant advice for Harry Kane before Liverpool win

So it would be fair to say Harry Kane isn't exactly a one season wonder, just ask Dejan Lovren.

The Tottenham forward was at his clinical best when Liverpool made the trip to Wembley Stadium on Sunday, scoring twice as Spurs romped their way to a 4-1 win. Heung-Min Son and Dele Alli also found the net on a torrid day for the visitors.

It was the result that truly persuaded fans that Tottenham were over their Wembley hoodoo with the victory propelling them to third in the table, level with title challenging Manchester United.

You can't ignore the credit Kane deserves for Spurs' recent rise to a certified top four team, collecting the past two Golden Boot awards against the likes of Sergio Aguero and Diego Costa.

Considering the 24-year-old already has 20 goals in 20 appearances for club and country this season, it's no surprise that rumours of a move from north London have begun to circulate.

Conveniently egged on by doubts over Karim Benzema - ignited by Gary Lineker's 'overrated' claims - the Englishman is being linked with the same career path as Gareth Bale and Luka Modric.

On current form, it's hard to argue with such lofty praise. While the debate over whether Kane is truly world-class is hotly argued by both sides, his scoring record simply cannot be ignored.

Nevertheless, of course, there's still room for improvement and one man who was keen to pass on some wisdom recently proved Diego Maradona.

The World Cup winner is regularly placed in the same bracket as the likes of Johan Cruyff and Pele and just happened to be in attendance at the Tottenham v Liverpool clash. He was introduced by ex-Spurs legend Osvaldo Ardiles in an exciting Premier League cameo.

Furthermore, he was keen to greet Mauricio Pochettino, Hugo Lloris and Kane in the dressing room before kick-off.

Check out the brilliant video below and Maradona's interesting advice:

So Maradona believes Kane needs to shoot across goalkeepers more often, believing shot stoppers will soon catch onto his knack of aiming for the near post.

He didn't need said advice against Liverpool, however, with his two goals emanating from mistakes via Lovren and Simon Mignolet as opposed to orthodox one-on-ones.

Nevertheless, when winding up a shot from outside the box in the first-half, he did - interestingly - attempt to catch out Mignolet at his near post.

Insightful input from Maradona but given Kane's goal scoring record at the moment, don't fix something that isn't broken.
