Harry Kane won a record-equalling seventh Premier League Player of the Month award after the Tottenham striker scooped up the prize for March. 

A stellar month saw Kane notch four goals and two assists for Spurs, who claimed three wins out of four against Everton, Brighton and West Ham respectively (Transfermarkt). 

The England captain’s strong displays named him the deserving winner of March’s award on Friday which took him level with Manchester City icon Sergio Aguero, who has also won the prize seven times. 

And with no other player having won more in the division, the 28-year-old is able to boast his record ahead of a host of iconic names that have graced the Premier League.

Kane had been level with Steven Gerrard with six to his name, with the Liverpool legend now in third place having won each of them with his boyhood side.

He has also won it more than Manchester United icons Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie with all claiming the award five times each. 

Former Arsenal men Thierry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp have earned four awards, as have English legends Alan Shearer, Frank Lampard and Paul Scholes. 

Meanwhile, Kane’s partner in crime Heung-min Son has been united with it on three occasions before, alongside current Premier League wingers Sadio Mane and Raheem Sterling (Wikipedia).

Spurs Web Opinion 

Kane thoroughly deserved the award for March with his strong displays which really pushed Spurs to earn three important wins. 

Winning it seven times, especially for the first time in more than four years, is just so impressive as is the list of names he has eclipsed to get there.
