Spurs Player of the Month for April - Robbie Keane

Robbie Keane can be particularly proud of his performances for Spurs in April. The Republic of Ireland striker scored four times in five appearances, with two of these strikes helping secure a three-point haul in the dramatic 3-2 win at West Brom on Easter Monday.

His first goal of the month came in Spurs’ 2-1 win at White Hart Lane over Birmingham City and another quickly followed in the following match, a 2-2 draw at Leeds.

And his tally for the month could have been higher, as his overall Opta stats for the month reveal that in total he unleashed eight shots, six of which were on target.

And Keane’s hard-work away from goal was equally impressive. He completed 83% of his passes and tried to dribble past opponents on 38 occasions, more than any other Spurs player.

If he can keep up his April form in Spurs’ last two matches of the season against Middlesbrough and Blackburn, Glenn Hoddle will fancy his side’s chances of finishing the 2002-03 campaign with a further two wins to their credit.
