Harry Kane has become Tottenham's key player this season, and he is having quite the impact.
Harry Kane aimed to establish himself in the Tottenham first team this season, but even he may not have forecast how vital he has become.
The England under-21 international has become a must-star for Mauricio Pochettino's side, and is even being tipped for senior international honours.
Just how vital, can be seen by the side's Premier League record with and without him.
We have used Opta data to look at Tottenham's form in matches Kane has started, or appeared off the bench, in comparison to games in which he has not featured at all, and there is a clear difference.
|Goals per game||Goals Conceded per game||Points per game||Games|
Spurs have a better attacking record, averaging almost double the number of goals, while his tireless work has helped the side concede fewer goals.
This winning combination translates into more points, with Spurs earning an average of only a point a game without him, compared to nearly double with him.
He is clearly a must-start, and it's no wonder he has become such a popular figure with supporters.
