Tottenham superstar Harry Kane has won the PFA Fans’ Premier League Player of the Season prize ahead of Chelsea duo N’Golo Kante and Eden Hazard. The English striker, who won the Golden Boot after scoring 29 goals in the top flight, finished on top of the public poll with 16,378 votes.
Kante, who won the PFA Players’ Player of the Year and the Football Writers’ Association prize for 2017, finished second, with 13,515 votes. Over 49,000 votes were cast in the poll, which was held on the Sky Sports website and apps, and Kane, who finished as the Premier League’s top goalscorer, came out on top
Chelsea’s Eden Hazard finished third, with 8,412 votes ahead of Alexis Sanchez (6,727), Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli (3,507) and Everton striker Romelu Lukaku (955). Hazard scored 17 goals and 7 assists and was one of the key reasons why Chelsea won the league title. However, it is rather surprising to see Alexis Sanchez finish so far behind Kante and Kane. Only goes on to show that Arsenal fans were sleeping rather than voting for their star player.
Harry Kane just leaped at the Golden Boot, scoring 7 goals in the final 2 league games, to end up with 29 league goals for the season. Poor Leicester and Hull City had no idea how to stop this phenomenon. Kane scored a total of 35 goals and 7 assists in just 38 games. He missed a significant part of the season due to injuries and still ended up as the top scorer in the league by a huge margin.
I even personally feel that it is absurd to compare Harry with Lukaku as our beloved English lad is way ahead of the Belgian from the Merseyside.
Kane is a huge part of our future and he is Spurs through and through. So this makes it all much sweeter than it actually is. Dele Alli, on the other hand, scored 22 goals and 13 assists and was amazing for us all season. He won the PFA Young Player Of The Year Award for the second time running and he deserved it.
The future looks extremely bright for us and the only thing that is eluding us is a trophy. This is by far the best Tottenham team in years and the boys thoroughly deserve to win silverware in the future.
The signs are all good and excitement creeps in as I think of the lads stepping out on the field next season.
