Harry Kane set to break Steven Gerrard’s record

Earlier today, Harry Kane was named the Premier League Player of the Month for September.

The Tottenham forward netted six goals in four games in the league during September, helping Spurs into third.

He is now just one award away from equalling Steven Gerrard’s record.

 

Kane’s incredible September

Kane beat Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne, Pascal Groß, Jamaal Lascelles, Romelu Lukaku and Alvaro Morata to the award.

This was Kane’s highest-scoring month of his career scoring 12 goals in total for club and country.

Following a lacklustre August where he failed to find the back of the net once, Kane used September to catch up with the league’s other strikers.

Harry Kane is one goal behind Manchester United’s Romelu Lukaku and level on six with Sergio Aguero and Alvaro Morata.

Kane scored braces against Everton, Huddersfield Town and West Ham United.

Harry Kane admitted that September 2017 was: “the best month of my career”.

Steven Gerrard’s record

Harry Kane is one Premier League Player of the Month award away from matching Steven Gerrard’s record of six.

Gerrard last won the award in March 2014, winning the award jointly with Liverpool teammate Luis Suarez.

Harry Kane can add the award to his nomination to win the Ballon d’Or.

Only Barcelona’s Lionel Messi has scored more goals in all competitions than the 24-year-old.
