Tottenham forward Harry Kane insisted he was feeling "sharp and fit" despite a slow start to the Premier League season.
Coming off a 41-goal campaign, Kane has struck just twice in five games for Spurs to begin this season, and was quiet in a 2-1 loss to Liverpool on Saturday.
"People are always going to look for stuff, especially when you are a big part of the team and someone who is there to get the goals," he told UK newspapers.
"As a team we can all do better and as the striker you get spoken about more, but I feel sharp and fit and if I wasn't the manager would not be picking me.
"He believes in me, I believe in myself and hopefully I can score a couple of goals on Tuesday and it will be put to bed."
Kane struggled against Liverpool, unable to have an impact as Spurs fell to a second straight defeat.
But manager Mauricio Pochettino dismissed any suggestions Kane would not start at San Siro.
"I think we would be crazy to think different. Yes. I don’t know what you expect from me, or what you think my answer should be," he said.
"He's one of the best strikers in the world. I don't care that he wasn't great [against Liverpool].
"He's going to score goals and he's going to perform in the way we want and we expect. No problem."
