Harry Kane v Harry Kane: Head to Head: Harry Kane's first and second seasons compared so far: 20160315

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane is a man in form, and he is doing what many believed would not be possible - actually bettering his performances from last season.

Last season Kane was a revelation, breaking into the Tottenham team and establishing himself as first choice striker, and even earning himself an England call-up and scoring on his debut.

After netting 21 Premier League goals in 2014/15, surely Harry Kane could not repeat his feats in 2015/16? Wrong.

With eight league games remaining, Kane is already up to 19 league goals, bouncing back from a slow start to the season which saw critics start to speculate if he was a one-season wonder. Now such suggestions look foolish.

Kane has dealt with the expectation without problem, and led the line for Tottenham pretty much on his own, with the club placing all their eggs in one basket.

He netted a match winning brace away to Aston Villa at the weekend, and his goals have the club in contention to win the Premier League title.

There are several key areas in which Kane has lifted his game in comparison to last season, even discounting his narrow goals per game improvement.

This season Kane is more involved, touching the ball more regularly, winning more aerial duels, and creating more chances.

His shots to goals ratio has dipped from 19 per cent to 16 per cent, but as he is attempting more shots per game this season than the previous year, he has scored just as regularly, while he is also winning the ball back for his team more frequently, showing that he is buying into Mauricio Pochettino's pressing game.

A big end to the season is expected from Kane domestically, and then for England at Euro 2016, but given the way he continues to rise the challenges put in front of him, there is no reason to doubt him.
