ICT Analysis: Kane back to his best

The Scout 7 Oct 2020
Harry Kane, Tottenham Hotspur

The Scout says the Spurs striker has the schedule to maintain his early-season form in FPL

The Scout is showing how the ICT Index can help Fantasy Premier League managers plan their transfers.

The Index looks beyond FPL points to determine players' value through their Influence, Creativity and Threat.

Harry Kane (£10.6m)

Tottenham Hotspur’s frontman has been among the standout players in FPL over the first four Gameweeks.

Kane has scored three goals and supplied six assists, with his total of 44 points making him the top-scoring forward, seven points clear of his nearest rival Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.6m).

Indeed, Kane is ranked second overall, just one point behind his Spurs team-mate, midfielder Son Heung-min (£9.0m).

Kane's goals and assists v Man Utd

The underlying statistics show why Kane has made such a big impact at the start of 2020/21.

His 19 shots are joint-top with Mohamed Salah (£12.2m), and he is second only to Liverpool’s Egyptian for shots in the box, by 14 to 15.

When it comes to accuracy, the Spurs striker has been in a class of his own, recording a league-leading 10 shots on target.

Top forwards for ICT score
Player Kane Calvert-Lewin Maupay Antonio
ICT score 62.3 51.0 43.0 39.8
Shots 19 15 12 15
Shots in box 14 13 9 12
Shots on target 10 9 6 7
Chances created 11 1 4 4
Goals and assists 9 6 5 2

Kane’s creativity has also played a major part in his strong start to the campaign.

His total of 11 key passes is more than double that of any other forward in FPL apart from the seven of Roberto Firmino (£9.3m).

Kane has also created six big chances for his team-mates. Only Everton playmaker James Rodriguez (£7.8m), with four, has provided more than half that total.

Kane's six assists are already four more than he managed in all of 2019/20.

Indeed, he is just one assist short of equalling his best-ever season.

More to come?

Spurs’ upcoming run of opponents looks very encouraging for their key attackers.

They face West Ham United, Burnley, Brighton & Hove Albion and West Bromwich Albion in the next four Gameweeks.

That lifts Kane’s potential for more goals and assists before Spurs’ schedule toughens in Gameweek 9.
