Harry Kane needs to "chill out" if he wants to get back on the goal trail for Tottenham.

That's the verdict of Sky Sports pundit Dwight Yorke after he watched the England forward draw another blank for Spurs in their 1-0 Super Sunday victory at Sunderland.

Kane scored two goals in two appearances for England during the international break, but is yet to score for Tottenham this season and only one of his four shots was on target at the Stadium of Light.

And former Sunderland striker Yorke reckons he is not as relaxed as he was last season when he struck 21 top-flight goals.

"He needs to chill out a little bit," he told Super Sunday.

"We looked at him in an England shirt and now he's in the Tottenham shirt and he just seems a different player.

It will happen for him, there's no doubt. He's too good a player for it not to happen for him.

"Maybe he is trying too hard. He had one or two opportunities again.

Both Sunderland and Tottenham were without a Premier League win at the start of play, but Ryan Mason's 82nd-minute goal lifted the pressure on Mauricio Pochettino.

And Yorke praised the Spurs boss for putting his faith in youngsters such as Mason, Dele Alli and Eric Dier.

"It was vital for both teams and Spurs will be the happier team," he added.

"I just think that Spurs have shown a lot of courage, particularly the young players, and that is something that their manager obviously believes in, giving the young players an opportunity.

"One of their young players has got them ahead and got them the points."
