Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino insists Harry Kane's failure to score in the Premier League so far this season is not a concern to him.

Defender Danny Rose salvaged a point for Spurs on Saturday after Pochettino's side had fallen behind to Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool.

The result saw Spurs take five points from three games but extended Kane's drought in front of goal to eight games for club and country.

"I think it's a good sign that he didn't score yet," Pochettino said, "because last season he scored in game 10 and was the top scorer in the league. I sign up again to do the same."

Midfielder Victor Wanyama and Dutch forward Vincent Janssen have already been added to the Argentine's squad during this transfer window, but Pochettino is still keen to make additions.

Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha was the subject of a £12 million ($15.7 million) bid by the north London club, which was branded "ridiculous" by Palace chairman Steve Parish.

"That is a rumor and I never talk about rumors," Pochettino said of the subject. "We have different targets and we will see what happens.

"It is a question of trying to add players to help us."
