Spurs striker Harry Kane wins Young Footballer of the Year

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane won Young Footballer of the Year at the London Football Awards. The forward has scored 24 goals for Spurs this season, including 14 in the Premier League.

Chelsea winger Eden Hazard picked up Footballer of the Year, whilst Arsene Wenger was recognised for his achievements at Arsenal with the Outstanding Contribution to a London Club award.

The event is held in aid of the Willow Foundation, which works with seriously ill young adults.

Kane won't have long to enjoy his success, though, as Tottenham prepare for their Premier League clash with QPR on Saturday. The match is Mauricio Pochettino's side's game in hand following their 2-0 defeat to Chelsea in the Capital One Cup in February.

Spurs ran out 4-0 winners when Queens Park Rangers visited White Hart Lane in August, but the Hoops will be hoping that their home form will ensure they present a sterner test at Loftus Road.

Much rests on the shoulders of Charlie Austin, who has netted 15 times for Chris Ramsey's side this season.

Should Spurs come out on top, Pochettino will be able to enjoy the FA Cup quarter-finals from sixth place in the league.

And the Argentine's predecessor Tim Sherwood will be leading his new Aston Villa side out against West Brom, hoping for a repeat of the 2-1 midweek scoreline when the two sides met in the league on Tuesday.

Bradford welcome Reading to Valley Parade, hoping to reach Wembley for the second time in three years after their Capital One Cup final appearance in 2013, whilst Liverpool host Blackburn Rovers and Arsenal head to Old Trafford to face Manchester United.
