Player Of The Month: Kane equals Gerrard’s record

0

Harry Kane has equalled Steven Gerrard’s record of six Premier League Player of the Month awards after winning December’s prize.

The Tottenham striker scored eight goals in six matches, including back-to-back hat-tricks against Burnley and Southampton in a vintage month.

He set a record of 39 Premier League goals in a calendar year in the process and has now joined the former Liverpool captain in the history books.

Kane admitted he was proud of the award as he gets set to return to league action in Spurs’ home clash with Everton this weekend.

‘It’s amazing, very proud of that,’ Kane said of matching Gerrard.

‘I’d probably say my favourite goal was the one that broke the [calendar year]record against Southampton,’ he added.

‘Obviously there’s a lot of talk before the game about whether I’d do it or not so to get that goal early on in the game as well, it was a great achievement.’

Gerrard won the first of his Player of the Month awards in March 2001, and his final one came 13 years later.

Kane topped a shortlist that included Chelsea wing-back Marcos Alonso, West Ham United’s Marko Arnautovic, Liverpool duo

Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah, Jesse Lingard of Manchester United, Leicester City’s Riyad Mahrez and Manchester City defender Nicolas Otamendi.
