Statzone: English Premier League, ft. Harry Kane

We aren’t sure if Real Madrid are close to lining up a January deal for Harry Kane, but what we do know is that the Tottenham forward’s goal scoring lead in the Premier League is beginning to look extremely narrow as the competition heats up this weekend. 

By competition we are pretty much talking Manchester, as both clubs have players within touching distance of Kane’s eight goals. Romelu Lukaku of the Red Devils, Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero are are locked on seven goals, while Jamie Vardy is on six despite not adding to his tally against Stoke City.

Why is this extra important? Well, if you have a quick glance at the fixture list this week, you will see some tantalising football matches, made all the more important by the goal scoring threats within them. The concept of top three all in action makes for a last day of the season type drama.

Elsewhere, we have Manchester City causing more waves in the passing department. As it stands Granit Xhaka has led the way this season, making more passes than any other player with a total of 868. However, Fernando, Nicolas Otamendi and David Silva are all within striking distance, or perhaps passing distance on this occasion.

Finally, for us Australians. Huddersfield Town managed to bag themselves another win, this time against West Brom. You may also like to know that Aaron Mooy is absolutely killing it… still. The Socceroo has made more tackles in the Premier League than any other player, except Onyinye Wilfred Ndidi. That’s worth a nod of the cap or two considering he was playing in the A-League a year and a bit ago.
