Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has been named as the Premier League player of the month following a stunning September.
Kane scored six goals in four PL appearances last month, as well as netting a five times in two Champions League outings.
The Spurs vice-captain has now won the award five times, following former successes in January 2015, February 2015, March 2016 and February 2017.
Only Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard, with six, has won the accolade on more occasions.
After failing to score a single goal in August, Kane exploded into form in September.
He kicked off the month by bagging a brace for England in Malta, before registering his first two Spurs strikes of the season in a 3-0 win at Everton.
Kane also netted doubles in away victories at West Ham and Huddersfield in the Premier League.
He took the Champions League by storm too, scoring five times in two matches, including a perfect hat-trick away to Apoel Nicosia.
Kane won the player of the month award after receiving the most combined votes from a panel of experts, Premier League captains and fans.
Manchester City duo Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne had also been nominated, along with Brighton’s Pascal Gross, Newcastle defender Jamaal Lascelles, Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku and Chelsea ace Alvaro Morata.
Kane will be hoping for a similarly prolific October.
Spurs play Bournemouth, Liverpool and Manchester United in the Premier League, as well as Real Madrid and West Ham in other competitions.
He has already scored twice for England this month, having stuck winners in 1-0 successes against Slovenia and Lithuania.
