Tottenham’s Heung-min Son equals Dimitar Berbatov in history books vs Villa

Tottenham’s Heung-min Son equals Dimitar Berbatov in history books vs Villa


Tottenham Hotspur attacker Heung-min Son this afternoon equalled the altogether impressive tally of a club legend, during his side’s meeting with Aston Villa.

Højbjerg on target

Nuno Espirito Santo’s men are of course currently locked in action.

After slipping to a concerning trio of successive defeats, the Lilywhites welcomed Villa to North London, eyeing a much-needed 3-point Premier League haul.

And, as things stand, a return to winning ways is precisely what Spurs are headed towards.

Early in the 2nd-half on Sunday, the hosts lead Dean Smith and co. by a goal to nil, on the back of a solid if unspectacular opening 45 minutes.

Pierre-Emile Højbjerg has proven the difference thus far, latching onto Heung-min Son’s pass, before slotting home from the edge of the area in characteristically no-nonsense fashion:

Son joins Berba

And, as outlined above, owing to Højbjerg’s rare goalscoring exploits this afternoon, the man to have teed him up – Heung-min Son – has reached an altogether impressive Premier League milestone.

South Korean international Son’s latest assist marked his 40th in the English top-flight.

As revealed by Squawka Football, this is the same number as was managed by former Lilywhites hitman Dimitar Berbatov across the entirety of his illustrious Premier League career (Spurs, Manchester United & Fulham), etching Son’s name ever further into the history books at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
