Much like Dele Alli said in January, Harry Kane insisted the whole team should take credit for his latest Premier League EA SPORTS Player of the Month award.

The home-grown front man has been lethal in front of goal of late, netting from the penalty spot in decisive fashion to see off Middlesbrough on February 4 and following that up with his fourth Premier League hat-trick as we blew Stoke City away 4-0 at White Hart Lane on February 26.

Add in another treble to see us past Fulham in the fifth round of the FA Cup on February 19 and you can easily see why Harry caught the eye of the Premier League's judging panel.

Ever the team player, the 23-year-old praised his colleagues after claiming the award for the fourth time in his career.

 


"It's a great honour," he said. "February was a good month for me and the team and it's great to be able to accept this award.

"It's about my team-mates and when you've got players like Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli behind you and the guys backing them up as well, they are creating the chances for me and I'm just there putting them in the back of the net, so I give all the thanks to my team-mates."

The complete professional on and off the pitch, Harry revealed an alteration to his eating habits might have also contributed to his good form.

"My diet has changed since January," he said. "I've got a new chef who I've been working with to help with my nutrition, to get me a bit leaner and quicker and that seems to be working."

Asked about his personal highlight on the pitch in February, Harry added: "Stoke was a great match for us and 4-0 shows how well we're playing at the moment.

"The second goal in that game was technically one of the best goals of my career – in the top five. It was a difficult technique, especially coming onto my left foot and when I watch that one back I'm delighted to see it go in."
