Kane's August hoodoo at Spurs stretches into another year following Burnley blank

The Tottenham striker has collected back-to-back Premier League Golden Boots, but his struggles in the first month of the season continue

Harry Kane is a double Premier League Golden Boot winner, but he must wait another 12 months before finding the target in August.

Remarkably for a player of his obvious talent, the England international has failed to net in the opening month of a top-flight campaign so far in his career.

That run was extended on Sunday as Spurs played out a 1-1 draw with Burnley at Wembley.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side thought they were on course for a first league success at their temporary home after seeing Dele Alli break the deadlock, but Chris Wood denied them in stoppage-time.

Kane’s blank in that contest means that he has now reached unlucky 13 when it comes to August outings without a goal.

Those struggles have not held him back in the past, though, and he will remain confident that the floodgates will open soon.
