Why Harry Kane Would Win The Golden Boot Again And Lead England In The World Cup

Tottenham Hotspur’s goal-scoring machine Harry Kane appears to have an insatiable appetite for picking up the Premier League Golden Boot award. Having won it for two consecutive years, Kane could be well on his way to winning it for the third time, once the 2017/18 season ends.

The £200m rated Harry Kane is currently one of the best strikers in the Premier League, and it is no coincidence that Spurs’ success over the past three seasons have coincided with Kane’s upward trajectory. The North London outfit have managed to establish themselves as genuine title challengers, and Kane has been quite instrumental in that journey.

Kane has been the top scorer in the Premier League for the past two seasons, and as things stand, he could be on the verge of picking up a hattrick Golden Boot. The Englishman appears to have wasted no time in solidifying himself as a favourite for the award this time around as well. True, there are other top strikers such as Romelu Lukaku at Manchester United, Alvaro Morata at Chelsea and Alexandre Lacazette at Arsenal, but Kane has more Premier League experience than two of those three players, and has been hugely consistent over the past three seasons.

Kane did lose chances to impress during August, but from September, the player has truly been unstoppable. In fact, his prowess is so stunning that the striker finished as the top scorer in the English top flight despite missing 8 league games due to injury last season.

Going forward, it looks like Romelu Lukaku will be Kane’s main challenger for the Premier League Golden Boot this season. The former Everton star has already scored 7 for Manchester United in the league this season, and with the amount of creativity surrounding him, the 24-year-old will definitely get a lot of chances to score.

However, the problem with Lukaku is that he struggles to score against the top sides. The game against Liverpool today was a typical example, although it could be argued that his blank was due to Mourinho’s tactics. Kane, on the other hand, thrives against big sides, and this gives the England international striker an edge. Besides that, there are not many options to provide competition for Kane. All this while, the player is seemingly on a goal-scoring rampage, which only goes to show why Kane could be close to winning the award for a third consecutive time.

While he is raking in accolades for his club performances, the player’s international career is also quite enviable. Kane is a crucial member of Gareth Southgate’s England squad as well, and he is in line to lead the team in the FIFA World Cup next year. As of now, there are no other players in England who are as gifted and reliable as Kane. For a long time, English football missed having a reliable hitman – and Kane is all that and more.
