Harry Kane and Son Heung-min have become English football’s hottest strikeforce.
The deadly duo set up a goal apiece for each other in the 3-3 draw with West Ham.
Here, the PA news agency focuses on their prolific partnership this season.
Kane is able
Kane has now been directly involved in 12 Premier League goals so far this term. Five goals and seven assists is the most by a player in their opening five matches of a campaign. Remarkably, the England captain had just two assists last season.
Kane has set up six of Son’s eight league goals this season. He previously assisted all four of Son’s goals in the 5-2 win at Southampton, becoming the first Englishman in Premier League history to do so, and the first player to provide four assists for the same team-mate.
That was the first time a player was involved in five Premier League goals in a single game since Mohamed Salah in March 2018.
To my feet, Son
Kane and Son also created a goal apiece for each other, and scored another one each as well, in the 6-1 mauling of Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Kane’s pass set Son through to open the scoring against West Ham inside the first minute.
Son’s two assists so far this season, against United and West Ham, have both been for Kane. In total Son and Kane have combined to score 28 Premier League goals.
