Shock stats reveal how Tottenham are Prem's biggest 'one-man team' thanks to Harry Kane with Chelsea most well-rounded

TOTTENHAM boss Jose Mourinho might want to consider wrapping Harry Kane in cotton wool.

After all, without the England striker, Spurs would be in real trouble this season.

Kane, 27, has been involved in a staggering 61.2 per cent of all of Tottenham's goals this season.

In the Premier League, Spurs have scored 49 times – with Kane involved in a barely-believable 30 of those.

Kane has scored 17 times – the joint-top in the Premier League with Mohamed Salah.

The forward has also added 13 assists – two more than second-placed Kevin De Bruyne such is his importance to the Tottenham team.

According to research from, no other Premier League team has been as dependent on one player as Tottenham are on Kane.

In fact, just one other team has seen one star contribute to half or more of their goals, with Callum Wilson involved in 53.6 per cent of Newcastle's strikes this season.

Bruno Fernandes, seemingly involved in everything positive at Manchester United, comes in third.

The Portuguese playmaker has contributed to 46.4 per cent of the Old Trafford side's goals.


Fernandes has scored 16 goals and added ten assists – playing a role in 26 of United's 56 goals in 2020-21.

Patrick Bamford, David McGoldrick, Salah, Jack Grealish and Matheus Pereira have all been involved in 40 per cent or more of their team's goals.

Interestingly, Chelsea are the team to have spread the love around more than any of their Premier League rivals.

Timo Werner – dubbed another expensive flop by so many fans and pundits – has actually been the Blues' top contributor.

The German has been involved in ten goals – with five of his own and five assists.

That represents a 22.7 per cent share of Chelsea's goals this term.

Kevin De Bruyne has been involved in exactly a quarter of all of Manchester City's goals this term with 16 of their 64 net-busters.

Burnley (Chris Wood) and West Ham (Michail Antonio) are the only two other teams to see their key player involved in under 30 per cent of all goals.
