It’s official: the powerful couple Son Heung-min and Harry Kane are back.
The duo shone again as Tottenham Hotspur rebounded from some disappointing results to beat Leeds United 3-0 in London, propelling Jose Mourinho’s men into the top four.
Kane opened the scoring with a penalty, before Son and Toby Alderweireld secured all three points on either side of half-time. But it was the South Korean who stole the show, rounding a nice shot to double the score and helping the final blow.
It was a fine victory for Spurs, made all the sweeter by a number of milestones and records broken by Son. The forward has scored his 100th goal for the Lily Whites since arriving in 2015, a tally that was only improved at the club by striking partner Kane – who scored 169 at that time.
But Kane only has one man to thank for many of those strikes.
It’s no secret that this dynamic duo have been living on their own wavelength for quite some time and that their telepathy has only increased each year. In fact, Kane’s assist for Son was the 13th time the pair have linked to score or assist this season, setting a new Premier League record, according to Opta.
No player has ever managed to combine for more goals in a all campaign – and this duo hit that magic number in 16 Games. Of course, this type of relationship comes at a price. The pair clearly share a deep connection, and while Kane has scored and assisted for Son, that wasn’t enough to keep the South Korean happy.
“I’m a little sad that I couldn’t help Harry today,” Son admitted. FPL managers across the country agreed.
Step by step, Sonny, it’s not a complete tragedy …
Still, the three points are enough to fend off contending Spurs, as they reach for the stars.
