Don’t believe in the curse – Harry Kane really can score in August.
The Tottenham Hotspur forward has never scored a Premier League goal in the month throughout his career.
It’s a stat that’s taken on a something of a life of its own with talk of Kane suffering from an August curse. However, while he may not have scored a league goal in the eighth month of the year, Kane HAS previously scored for Spurs in August.
While with the Under-21s he scored on August 9, 2013 in a four-two victory over Chelsea Under-21s. Just 10 days later he scored a hat-trick in a six-three win over Manchester City Under-21s.
He’s also scored two August goals for the senior team. Kane got the winner in a two-one win over Limassol in the Europa League on August 21, 2014. He also got the first goal in the three-nil return leg victory seven days later.
