Spurs started the season quite slowly in terms of goals, yet as the campaign has progressed the North Londoners have started to find the net with greater regularity.
The goals have flowed in the Premier League, the League Cup – where they face Chelsea in the final – and the Europa League, where Serie A side Fiorentina awaits in the knockout stages.
Yet, not all of Spurs’ goals this season have been spread around the squad. In fact, over half of their Premier League strikes this season have been scored by just two players – Kane and Eriksen.
The exciting duo have been in such good goal scoring form for Mauricio Pochettino’s men that they have accumulated 34 goals between them in all competitions.
This figure makes them Europe’s joint-fourth deadliest, as per Mundo Deportivo, with the following ten top partnerships published accordingly:
1. Lionel Messi and Neymar – Barcelona – 57 goals
2. Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema – Real Madrid – 53 goals
3. Alexandre Lacazzete and Nabil Fekir – Lyon – 35 goals
4. Mario Mandzukic and Antoine Griezmann – Atletico Madrid – 34 goals
=. Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen – Tottenham Hotpsur – 34 goals
6. Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani – PSG – 32 goals
7. Sergio Aguero and Yaya Toure – Manchester City – 30 goals
=. Diego Costa and Eden Hazard – Chelsea – 30 goals
9. Carlos Tevez and Paul Pogba – Juventus – 27 goals
=. Gonzalo Higuain and Jose Callejon – Napoli – 27 goals
Spurs have benefitted greatly from Kane’s fabulous scoring run since the turn of the year, helping the club beat North London rivals Arsenal 2-1 and keep them in the race for a top-four spot.
However, Pochettino will also be cautious in that an over-reliance on his two stars could prove detrimental for the team in the long-run.
