Cape Town - Tottenham forward Erik Lamela says Harry Kane is not a machine and expects the England captain to rediscover his goal scoring form soon.

Kane is without a goal in his last five matches for club and country and also had a difficult game as his side lost to Inter Milan in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The 26-year old admitted that it's impossible for Kane to score in every game, but Spurs have other players to carry the responsibilities when he is not at his best.

"Harry is not a machine. He scores a lot. He always scores," Lamela told Sky Sports.

"Here he didn't and for two or three games he didn't. But he will score again.

"It's not like Harry needs to score every single game. Christian (Eriksen) scored, I scored in the last game. Sonny (Heung-Min Son) will score. Lucas (Moura) will score. All the pressure is not on Harry.

"All the attacking players need to score. And that's it."

The Argentine is confident that Tottenham will overcome a difficult run of three matches.

"I don't think we're losing our confidence. We believe in each other in this team," Lamela added.

"That's why we always fight until the end of the season. Of course, now you're thinking like this. But inside the dressing room, I can tell you it's not like this."
