Tottenham striker Harry Kane has unlocked yet another achievement by equaling Steven Gerrard’s record of winning the most number of EA Sports Premier League Player of the Month awards.
The England international bagged his 6th Player of the Month award and is on level terms with Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard and not to forget, Kane is just 24. Kane, who recently ended up being the top scorer of the 2017 calendar year by scoring 56 goals, netted 8 goals in 6 games during the month of December. Kane also set a record of 39 Premier League goals in a calendar year, surpassing none other than Alan Shearer.
Heading for this month’s title was Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, Chelsea’s Marcos Alonso, Manchester City’s Nicolas Otamendi, Leicester City’ Riyad Mahrez, Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard and West Ham United’s Marko Arnautovic.
Kane, who scored two against Wimbledon in the FA Cup third round this year, will now be hoping to have a similar impact when his side welcome Everton to the Wembley.
Speaking about his new achievement, Kane said that he was very proud of this award and went on thank his teammates.
“It’s amazing, I’m very proud of that. As always, big thanks to the team, it was a great month and it’s great to (equal) that record.
“Whenever I get around the box, I feel I can get a shot off quickly and of course the team have been creating great chances so I’m there to stick them in the back of the net. I feel good, I feel sharp so I guess I’ll just carry on,” Kane was quoted on the club’s official website.
Steven Gerrard, the Liverpool legend, won his first player of the month award way back in March 2001, and eventually, his final one came 13 years later. Having said that, this is how Twitter reacted to Kane’s achievement:
Well done Harry,you deserved it,that’s why you won,,

Harry Kane wins December Player of the Month. Probably should’ve gone to Jesse Lingard, but, look at his face. pic.twitter.com/7JDxHdxyDl

Its sad that he’s gonna have only POTM trophies at the end of his career if he stays at Tottenham.

Great month for him. Showing great performances on court and proffessional attitude off court. Good luck.

“Most entertaining”, “The ending…” – Some Spurs fans love latest advert featuring accommodation partner
Tottenham posted a video of their tie-up with Hotels.com, our official accommodation partner, and it was an interesting video, to say the least.
Spurs players Christian Eriksen, Michel Vorm, Ben Davies and Juan Foyth participated in some “hotel-related” drills in the two-minute long ad.
It was fun to see Eriksen and co carrying luggage around an obstacle course while the Dane also dropped drinks glasses from his tray.
🙌 Tottenham Hotspur… at your service! 👌
— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) September 24, 2018
There were a few laughs too as Vorm wasn’t able to fold the quilt in the right manner and some of the fans saw the funny side of the video.
Tottenham haven’t started the season well and were lucky to get all three points against Brighton in our previous game. However, it was nice to see the players having a great time in the fun advert.
The video certainly was done pretty well and the ending is something to behold too.
wasn’t gonna like it, but then the ending…

The most entertaining thing spurs have produced this season 👏🏽👏🏽
— Tom Rossi (@TomRossi11) September 24, 2018
Pretty funny video from the players. Dele Alli and Son should of been in that video. It would of been even better. Lets go you Spurs!
— Hugue Chery (@CheryHugue) September 24, 2018
The most entertaining thing I’ve seen from us so far this season.
— Gin🇮🇹 (@Lamela11i) September 24, 2018
Glad to see Vorm done something good, shame it was with his feet.

“Rather buy Ndombele”, “Ship has sailed” – Some Tottenham fans are split over summer target penning new deal
Grealish was one of the stars for the Villans last season but they missed out on promotion to the Premier League.
Villa aren’t doing well in the Championship as they lie 13th with 13 points from nine games. Grealish is yet to score for his boyhood club in the ongoing term.
With his selling price doubled, as per the report, some Tottenham fans weren’t sure about the club making a move for the player while a few blamed Daniel Levy for botching the transfer.
Breaking: Jack Grealish signs new Aston Villa contract.
— Spurs-Express (@Spurs_Express) September 24, 2018
I would rather buy ndombele with that amount
— Spurs Addict (@kylehotspurs) September 24, 2018
£60m for an average championship player 😂😂😂
— Jonathan McDonald (@jonathan_coys) September 23, 2018
This ship has sailed methinks. We were interested in a bargain but lost out in the poker game because their ownership changed.
— Gareth McCarter (@g2mcc) September 23, 2018
That ship has sailed. Oliver Skipp is the one to watch at Spurs. He’s the one to come through next. Luke Amos will also get his chances in domestic cups. If we buy a midfielder there is miles better value & potential than JG imho. Eg Doucoure

— Nathan A Clark (@NathanAClark) September 24, 2018
@SpursOfficial have missed a trick not moving for Maddison ahead of Grealish, Maddison had a much better season but Grealish worth more money apparently. Leicester got a bargain in my opinion.
— ChrisCOYS (@ChrisCOYS2) September 24, 2018
We don’t need anyone according to Lewis, Levy and Pochettino.
— Andrew Duncan (@andrewsduncan1) September 24, 2018
Grealish signs a new 5 year deal with Villa which means he’s signing for Spurs in January for 10 mil
— Aaron Howey (@aaronhowey) September 24, 2018
Grealish to join long list of Spurs near misses that go on to become big hits, usually at Chelsea https://t.co/jZZZ5QvEQW

(Video) Watch Tottenham’s new stadium’s artificial pitch lights functioning as work continues
Tottenham’s new stadium is inching towards completion as another new time-lapse video of our home was put up on YouTube.
The latest video shows a lot of pavement work being done outside. And the most interesting aspect of the clip is of our pitch.
Cranes can be seen operating on the surface inside the stadium. Once the vehicles leave, our artificial lighting can be seen moving about and illuminating the surface.
There is a lot of work still to be done on the exteriors and Tottenham haven’t communicated as to when our new home would be completed.
We had reported that Spurs quashed suggestions that the venue would not be ready before 2019.
Another allegation related to drug and alcohol abuse by the workers in the stadium was also refuted.
Tottenham had earlier claimed that the venue would be complete by 15th September, which was our clash against Liverpool.
Although a lot of effort is being taken to ensure the home is finished as quickly as possible, it is frustrating to see the stadium not looking close to completion as the pitch hasn’t been installed yet.
The planning for the stadium seems way off at the moment but hopefully, the team can produce a string of wins and take our minds off this delayed timeline.
