It seems apt (after Tottenham’s win) to link to an older analysis on Harry Kane by James Yorke at Statsbomb. The piece is a fine statistical analysis of Kane’s output, as well as highlighting other parts of his game that often go unnoticed:
It also reflects an aspect of Kane’s game that didn’t register at all last season: creative passing. I have no idea how he sees this pass to Mason (he got a shout?), let alone executes it with such precision. Backing this piece of play up, we now have evidence of crossing and through balls, neither of which figured when he was playing in Tim Sherwood’s more orthodox 2 striker system. Pochettino has required him to become more versatile and it shows. Alongside this, but harder to represent statistically, his ability to hold the ball up and position himself effectively to shield the ball has visibly strengthened over time. Kane is a consistently smart player.
