Tottenham Hotspur have finally burst into life in 2020/21.
Jose Mourinho’s side bounced back from their opening weekend defeat against Everton to beat Southampton 5-2 on the south coast today, with Heung-min Son scoring four of the goals.
Amazingly, Spurs’ usual goal-getter Harry Kane supplied all four assists for his South Korean teammate in what was a quite incredible game.
Danny Ings put Southampton 1-0 up in the first-half, before Son brought the sides level just before the break.
Son then added his second shortly after the restart, proceeding to complete his hat-trick on 64 minutes after once again taking advantage of the Saints’ ludicrously high back-line.
The 28-year-old then scored his fourth of the game on 73 minutes from another Kane assist in what was a bonkers final 45 minutes at St Mary’s.
You can watch all four of Son’s goals below and marvel at one of the best performances from a double act we will see in the Premier League in 2020/21.
Who needs Gareth Bale, eh? It’s the first time a player has assisted a teammate four times during the same game in Premier League history – impressive stuff.
When Son and Kane are working in tandem like that, Spurs look a completely different team, but they were also aided by some woeful defending from the hosts.
Kane himself got on the scoresheet late on to make it 5-1, capping off a wonderful performance from England’s captain.
Ings added his second of the game from the penalty spot in the final few seconds of the 90, a mere consolation on the day.
If you were one of the lucky ones to have both Son and Kane in your Fantasy Premier League team, then we tip our hat to you.
