#PremierLeagueStories – Arsenal legend predicts that #HarryKane will break #ThierryHenry’s record #THFC #AFC

Martin Keown

Former Arsenal defender turned pundit Martin Keown has tipped Harry Kane to break the record for Premier League assists in a single season. The England skipper has been in scintillating form this season so far, having scored five goals and created another eight in just six top-flight appearances for Tottenham. The current record, shared by Thierry Henry and Kevin de Bruyne, stands at 20 but Keown believes that Kane stands in good stead to beat this milestone by a significant margin.

Martin Keown said “He [Kane] is starting high, dropping deep, and showing there is more to his game than merely scoring goals, With eight assists in six games, at this rate Kane would obliterate the Premier League record of 20, shared by Henry and Kevin De Bruyne. We’ve seen what Roberto Firmino does for Liverpool – how he drops into those pockets of space and has willing runners in Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, who start wide but come inside, Kane, likewise, has fast-paced forwards who he can pick out. That’s been Son of late – most notably in that 5-2 win over Southampton when Kane took advantage of the hosts’ high line to assist his team-mate four times. But now he has Gareth Bale, too. Son and Bale could become Tottenham’s inside forwards with Kane applying those golden passes into their paths.”
