Harry Kane has brushed off concerns about his form and says "there’s no doubt" he will start scoring again soon.

Kane, who is preparing for England’s World Cup qualifying double-header against Albania and San Marino, has scored just once in ten Premier League games for Tottenham this season, while he also drew a blank during the last international break.

"As a player, I’ve always loved training," Kane told BBC Radio 5 Live when asked about his form. "I’ve always just loved getting back on the training pitch and just getting back to doing finishing drills, doing different movements just feeling the scoring.

"I know the goals will come, there’s no doubt about that. But as we spoke about in the summer I went a couple of games without scoring [for England] and there’s a lot of talk but it’s just about sometimes the ball falls your way, sometimes it doesn’t.

"That’s honestly what happens as a striker, it’s about being in the right place at the right time and doing the right movements.

"As I’d always back my finishing whenever I get chances, there’s no reset button and it’s just about working hard and keeping focus, that self-belief and the goals will come, the chances will come and obviously I’ll be there to put them away.

"Obviously from an England point of view the season has been a good season," added the Three Lions captain.

"It has been a great calendar year not just for me but for the team, leading our nation to the final [of Euro 2020] is an extremely proud moment in my career and hopefully we finish the job tomorrow and qualify for another major tournament.

"In terms of club obviously it’s been an up and down season, probably a bit more disappointment than we’re probably used to.

"Obviously with a new manager and now another new manager, my personal form hasn’t been as good as it has been in recent years at this stage of the season.

"But all in all, just something to adapt to and learn from. Every season you find a new challenge and that’s what I’ve always found in my career so far.

"So this was about how you deal with that, how you cope with that and my method is always just keep your head down work hard and from a personal point of view, I know the goals and that are there it’s just about taking the opportunities when they arrive."

Spurs have had four managers since mid-April but Kane insisted his form had not been impacted by chopping and changing in the dugout, and says he is looking forward to working under new head coach Antonio Conte.

"I don’t think so," he said. "I think of course you have to get used to different managers. You have to see the way they work, the way they train. Get to know them on a personal level as well. So I guess that takes a bit of getting used to.

"All in all, the type of player I am, I’m someone who always trains hard, always wants to improve always wants to work hard and obviously the new manager coming in, is very much about improving players.

"So I’m sure we will have a great relationship, I’m looking forward to getting to know him more and getting to work on him more and hopefully we can start turning things around quick as a team and start getting some results."
