Name: Harry Kane
“Why not?” Those are the words that should be whispered around White Hart Lane following Tottenham’s impressive displays this month. “Why can’t we go on to win the Premier League title this season?”
Edging out England international Dele Alli to this month’s honour; Harry Kane has finally helped English football wake up and recognise Spurs as serious title contenders this campaign after a rewarding month for the star striker.
The 22-year-old, who now has eight international caps for the Three Lions, continued his steady form in front of goal this month by netting twice to help Mauricio Pochettino’s men move within just five points of league leaders Leicester City with 15 games remaining.
Kane; who is tipped to lead the line for England at this summer’s UEFA European Championships, coolly converted a penalty in Tottenham’s 4-1 mulling of Sunderland before wrapping up an impressive 3-1 victory at Crystal Palace last Saturday to boost his league goalscoring tally to a splendid 13 strikes in 23 appearances.
Furthermore; the fan’s favourite struck a crucial late penalty in Tottenham’s FA Cup third-round tie against Leicester City back on January 10, which eventually led to a victorious third-round replay and leave Spurs continue fighting on three fronts this term (Premier League, FA Cup and UEFA Europa League).
