Harry Kane has never scored in the month of August for club.

The England and Tottenham Hotspur striker appears goal jinxed as he was unable, still, to score in Spurs’ season opener against Newcastle on Saturday.

First half goals from Jan Vertonghen (8th minute) and Dele Alli (18th minute) ensured Mauricio Pochettino’s men headed back home with three points in the kitty.

Jan Vertonghen opens scoring for Tottenham Hotspur against Newcastle

Newcastle’s 11th minute equaliser from the boots of Spain international, Joselu could not stop the club from losing its tenth season opening game.

Harry finished as second highest goal scorer last season with 30 goals, two behind Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah.

Six goals in the June-July Russia 2018 World Cup assured him of the Golden Boot award.

With 19 goals in 30 senior appearances for England, 108 in 150 games for Tottenham Hotspur, loan stints with Leyton Orient (18 apps, 5 goals), Millwall (22 apps, 7 goals), Norwich City (3 apps, 0 goals) and Leicester City (13 apps, 2 goals), Kane has never scored in the EPL for Tottenham in August.

Spurs have two more games to play in the month of August: Fulham on the 18th and Manchester United on the 27th.

Perhaps, Kane who is still fresh with ecstasy over the birth of second child with wife, could put the ball behind the line against Fulham or United.
