Tottenham deadly duo Kane, Son closing in on Premier League record

Jose Mourinho said Harry Kane, Moussa Sissoko and Son Heung-min would all start against his former club Manchester United in their Premier League return on Friday.

Tottenham Hotspurs duo, Harry Kane and Son Heung-min are close to breaking an incredible Premier League record.

On Sunday night, the Spurs pals combined yet again, twice, in the 2-0 North London derby win over Arsenal.

The South Korean star then ran half the length of the pitch up the left-wing before curling in an unstoppable shot.

Later in the game, Son gave up a great chance to grab his second to instead lay the ball off to Kane in the box, with the England captain smashing the ball in off the underside of the bar.

The pair have now combined to store a staggering 31 Premier League goals.

Famed for his incredible shooting, Kane’s creativity this season has become a real talking point.

In a scarcely-believable purple patch, the England captain has set up EIGHT Son goals this season alone.

And Son has returned the favour on three occasions too, meaning the pair have set up 11 goals for each other in 2020-21 already.

Those 11 goals have seen them leap up to SECOND in the standings for the most prolific partners in Premier League history.

After combining to score in the 1-0 win over Burnley earlier this season, Kane and Son drew level with Arsenal legends Robert Pires and Thierry Henry as well as Manchester City duo David Silva and Sergio Aguero.

Those iconic double-acts combined for 29 goals while playing together – with Kane and Son now sitting in outright second place after their Arsenal heroics.

In their 2020-21 run of form, the Tottenham pair overtook another Spurs tandem: Teddy Sheringham and Darren Anderton (27 goals).

Next in their sights will be iconic Chelsea duo Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba.

The Blues legends combined to score 36 Premier League goals during their time together at Stamford Bridge.

Having already teamed-up to score 11 goals this season, Kane and Son will be confident in surpassing that tally before the end of the 2020-21 season.

Next up in the Premier League for Tottenham are Crystal Palace on Sunday December 13.
