Having taken the honour in January, our in-form striker has today been named Player of the Month for February – making him only the fourth player ever to win the award in consecutive months.

Only Dennis Bergkamp, Cristiano Ronaldo and Robbie Fowler had previously achieved the feat since the prize was first introduced 21 years ago.

Harry began February with a two-goal match-winning performance in the North London derby against Arsenal, before also hitting the target at Liverpool three days later.

He then popped up with a last-gasp equaliser in our 2-2 draw with West Ham United at White Hart Lane on February 22.

"I'm very happy," said the 21-year-old upon receiving the trophy. "To win it once a year is great, let alone twice in two months.

“For me, the Arsenal game was the highlight of February. To score twice and to get that late winner was incredible.

“This season has happened so fast but I’ve always believed in myself. I just had to take my chance and thankfully I’ve done that.”

The Barclays Panel - a group of former players, journalists and key football stakeholders - are responsible for choosing the recipient of the award each month.
