‘Kane you believe it?’, ‘White Hart Kane’, ‘Harry Kane scores another goal’; the snappy headlines write themselves.
Harry Kane has been phenomenal this season and stands on the cusp of a second consecutive golden boot with more goals than ever and having played less games. Cast your mind back to 2013 however and Kane looked destined to be a journeyman who’s only hope of breaking into the Spurs side was for the novelty of having an English player run out for the last 10 minutes of a Europa League group stage match.
Kane exploded onto the scene three seasons ago and despite his best efforts, was dubbed a “one season wonder.”
That theory has now well and truly been quashed as Harry notched up his 23rd, 24th, 25th and 26th goal of the season in a 6-1 drubbing of Leicester, bringing his overall Spurs tally to 72 in three seasons and 75 overall. It’s a fair assessment to suggest that he could walk into any team in Europe given his current form but why would he want to?
His partnership with Dele Alli is one of the most potent in Premier League history and they already have more goals combined than Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres achieved over a longer period of time.
No doubt, he will be dreaming of another title push next season and whether they end the season with actual silverware or not rests on his ever-improving shoulders.
