Spurs’ Kane & Baggies Boss Win Barclays Monthly Award

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has been named the Barclays Premier League player of the month for the second month on the trot.

The 21-year-old scored four goals in February to beat Hull City’s Dame N’Doye, Swansea City’s Jonjo Shelvey, Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho, West Bromwwich Albion’s Ben Foster and Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil to the monthly player’s prize.

“It’s an honour to get this award once in a season, let alone twice in two months,” he told the BBC Sport.

Kane also scored five goals in January, including a brace in the win against Chelsea at White Hart Lane.

Former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler, ex-Arsenal forward Dennis Bergkamp and former Manchester United player Cristiano Ronaldo are the only others to have won the award in consecutive months since its inception.

West Brom head coach Tony Pulis claimed the manager’s award for the month of February.
