Premier League

Harry Kane wins Golden Boot and Playmaker of the season award

Harry Kane scored a goal in Spurs' 4-2 win over Leicester City in the final match of the season to win the Premier league's Golden boot.

The England striker has become the first player in 22 years to win both the Premier League's Golden boot and Top Assist chart in the same season.

Jamie Vardy opened the scoring from the penalty spot before Kane took his tally to 23 premier league goals after a superb finish to secure his third premier league golden boot.

The England international recently declared his intention to leave the spurs publicly citing his desire for a new challenge.

Harry Kane's closest competitor for the golden boot is the Egyptian Mohamed Salah who had been tied with the Spurs striker going forward into the final match of the season.

Kane’s latest strike and assist takes him to 37 goal involvements in the Premier League this season, beating his previous best return in a single campaign (36 in 2016/17) season. He has 44 goal involvements across all competitions this season.

In the premier league history, only Andy Cole (1993/1994 season) and Floyd Hasselbaink (1998/1999 season) have ever topped the scoring and assist cart in the same premier league campaign.
