Spurs superstar Kane also scored back-to-back winners for England in their recent 1-0 2018 World Cup qualifying wins against Slovenia and Lithuania. Five more goals in the UEFA Champions League against Borussia Dortmund (two) and APOEL Nicosia (three) took his tally to 13 goals in just eight matches last month.
Guardiola continued his imperious 2017-18 form at City’s helm, meanwhile, and a maximum 12 points during September saw his side stay atop the Premier League table alongside rivals Manchester United:
