Tottenham star matches Cristiano Ronaldo's nine-year old Premier League record

Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane has become of the first man to win back-to-back Premier League Player of the Month awards since Cristiano Ronaldo did so during his time with Manchester United.

Harry Kane has won the Premier League Player of the Month award for February on the back of his brilliant performances for Tottenham Hotspur over the last few weeks.

Kane scored four goals in three league matches last month and his form made him a deserved winner of the prestigious prize.

He becomes the first player to be recognised as the pick of the Premier League crop in successive months since then-Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo achieved the feat back in 2006.

It is just another accolade for Kane in what has been a quite sensational season for the 21-year-old.

Kane started the season expected to be utilised as back-up by Mauricio Pochettino, but he has become one of the Premier League's leading strikers and is now, unquestionably, Tottenham's main goal threat.

Over the month of February he scored twice in a memorable North London derby match against Arsenal, once against Liverpool and then against West Ham United.

It means that his total now stands at 16 Premier League goals for the season and he will be hoping to continue to add to that as Spurs try to claim a top-four finish.
