Owen discusses Spurs star's phenomenal season during Southampton draw

The Tottenham striker drew a blank on Saturday, but has had a superb campaign.

Harry Kane may not have had the best of games against Southampton during Tottenham's 2-2 draw, but ex-England striker Michael Owen couldn't help but wax lyrical about the attacking sensation, during his commentary on the game for BT Sport.

“It’s been phenomenal hasn’t it," he said about Kane's goalscoring record of 20 league goals despite not getting his first league start until November.

“There have been so many good things said about Harry Kane this season, but that really is a phenomenal stat.

“He even started in the Europa League before coming into the league side fairly late.

“It’s really been a great season.”

The draw on Saturday was a rare lean match in the Englishman's season, having scored his 30th goal of the campaign in last week's win over Newcastle.

And it is a season that may be capped with the possibility of winning the PFA Player of the Year award and/or the Young Player of the Year trophy, with the ceremony due to take place on Sunday night.

That form led Owen to picking the 21-year-old as the winner of one of the two awards, but it wasn't the major one in the former Liverpool striker's eyes.

"I’d be in the camp that says Eden Hazard player of the year," revealed Owen. "And Kane for Young Player of the Year."

The Chelsea star has been in sensational form in the Blues' title charge, and has the chance to impress against Arsenal before the awards bash.

Kane had very little opportunity to impress on the South Coast, as much of Tottenham's attacking play came from wide positions.

Roberto Soldado came onto the field late on, with Kane then dropping into an attacking midfield position, but he still failed to have any meaningful attempts on goal.
