Mauricio Pochettino believes there is more to come from Harry Kane after the Tottenham Hotspur striker scooped successive PFA player of the month awards.

The 21-year-old was named as the Premier League’s best player for February after his brace against Arsenal in the north London derby as well as strikes against Liverpool and West Ham United.

The England Under-21 international won the award for January, too, after he scored five times, prompting talk of a call-up to Roy Hodgson’s senior squad ahead of the upcoming international break.

Spurs manager Pochettino is thrilled with Kane’s current form, but the Argentine challenged the Tottenham striker to make further improvements to his game.

“So far he is a player that deserves a lot of praise,” Pochettino told his pre-match media conference at Hotspur Way on Friday.

“But we have a lot of games ahead to decide who is the player of the year. I’m not surprised because of the way he works. He works very hard in training. When a striker or offensive player scores goals, it’s good.

“His potential is massive and he can improve more. That is our idea, for him to improve his game every week.”

Kane has scored 16 goals in 24 Premier League games this season, scooping the PFA fans’ player of the month for January.
