Tottenham haven't bought a successful striker in ELEVEN YEARS

  Tottenham haven't bought a successful striker in ELEVEN YEARS Last Sunday's defeat to Everton raised questions as to Spurs' reliance on Kane as the man to lead the line, as well as wider concerns about their inability to recruit well in the final third. The acquisition of Gareth Bale might be a stunning step in the right direction but that does not solve the problem at the point of the spear.

Son Heung-min and Harry Kane's phenomenal link-up play put Southampton to the sword on Sunday as Tottenham ran out 5-2 winners at St Mary's.

Danny Ings goals bookended the contest but in between - especially after half-time - Jose Mourinho's side ran riot, thanks almost exclusively to the two elite attacking stars who will imminently be joined on the field by a returning Gareth Bale.

Son levelled matters with Spurs' only shot and touch inside the Saints box before half-time and he made merry during the second period.

SOUTHAMPTON - Son Heung-min scored four goals set up by Harry Kane as Tottenham Hotspur came from a goal down to overwhelm Southampton 5-2 on Sunday and earn their first Premier League win of the season. In an action-packed first half at St Mary’s, both sides had a goal ruled out by VAR

Two minutes after the restart, Kane teed up Son to put the visitors ahead with a low shot into the bottom corner. Son scored again in the 64th minute with a right-footed shot inside the Cookies on PremierLeague .com. The Premier League website employs cookies to improve your user experience.

Kane assisted every one of the South Korea international's goals before Son returned the favour for number five.

Here, we have a look at how the pair's collective brilliance sits within Premier League history.


Sunday's exploits meant Kane became the first Premier League player to be involved in five goals in the same match since Liverpool hero Mohamed Salah against Watford in March 2018, when he scored four and laid on the other for Roberto Firmino in a 5-0 win.

Indeed, it is the second time Kane has accomplished the feat, having done so with his famed goalscoring to the fore as he netted four and grabbed a solitary assist against Leicester City in May 2017. Son got the other two goals in a 6-1 victory.

His first Premier League hat-trick in the 64th minute was almost a carbon copy, with Southampton 's high defensive line exposed again by England international Kane , with Son finishing clinically. The best assist from Kane was still to come as his exquisite curled pass found his strike partner for his fourth.

Kane is the third player to have chalked up four assists among five goal involvements, following Cesc Fabregas for Arsenal against Blackburn Rovers in October 2009 and Emmanuel Adebayor for Spurs versus Newcastle United in February 2012.

England captain Kane is the third player to manage five goal involvements in a game more than once, sitting in elite company with Alan Shearer and Thierry Henry.


Son's hat-trick was the fourth time a player claimed a Premier League matchball thanks to assists from the same player - and the first to do so for 17 years.

Liverpool came from behind to defeat Arsenal 3-1 at Anfield in December 1995, with Stan Collymore setting up each of Robbie Fowler's goals.

Earlier that year in September, Shearer owed a debt to Blackburn strike partner Mike Newell as the then-reigning champions thumped Coventry City 5-1.

If Fantasy Premier League managers needed a reminder to be patient with their early-season Over 485,000 sold Son Heung-min (£9.0m) for Gameweek 2 after he blanked at home to Everton in Spurs ’ opening fixture. Kane assisted all four of Son ’s goals and also scored Spurs ’ fifth, earning 21 points.

The last time such a collection of assists were produced was back in 2003, when Henry assisted Freddie Ljungberg's treble in Arsenal's 4-0 defeat of Sunderland.

However, Son is the first Premier League player to have four goals in one match all created by the same player.


Kane is the first Englishman to supply four assists in the same Premier League game and the sixth player in history to do so overall.

This statistic remains exclusively the preserve of north London, with all of the players to record four assists having done so for either Spurs or Arsenal.

Along with the efforts of Adebayor and Fabregas mentioned above, Dennis Bergkamp (vs Leicester City, February 1999), Jose Antonio Reyes (vs Middlesbrough, January 2006), and Santi Cazorla (vs Wigan Athletic, May 2013) fashioned four goals inside 90 minutes for the Gunners.


Since Son's Tottenham debut in September 2015, no Premier League pairing has combined more frequently for goals than he and Kane.

Their alliance has yielded 24 overall and the Southampton game saw them overhaul and open up a gap on the players in second place.

Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero should be expected to add to their 20 combinations for goals at Manchester City, although not in the immediate future as the Argentina striker continues his recovery from knee surgery.

Kane is involved in both of the next two most fruitful duos, alongside Christian Eriksen (19) and Dele Alli (18). Eriksen left to join Inter last season and current speculation suggests Alli's days at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium could also be numbered.

Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez, now at Manchester City, were the heroes of Leicester's sensational 2015-16 title triumph and combined for 17 goals during their time together in the east Midlands.

Ashley Cole holding a glass of wine:                      For just £5m, Cole must be considered one of the greatest bargains in Premier League history. Granted, Chelsea had to give up William Gallas in an exchange deal, but what Cole helped the club achieve more than proved his worth.
