Kane & Son level iconic Arsenal duo in PL record books

Kane & Son level iconic Arsenal duo in PL record books

Tottenham’s victory over Burnley this evening saw Harry Kane and Heung-min Son etch their names further into the history books of the Premier League.

Son makes the difference

Jose Mourinho’s men made the trip to Turf Moor a short time ago, for the club’s latest league outing.

Spurs headed into proceedings in search of a bounce-back result, having thrown away a 3-goal advantage to eventually stumble to a point versus West Ham last weekend.

With the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United having all dropped points over the last 48 hours, though, the Lilywhites were no doubt fully aware of how significant a 3-point haul in Lancashire could prove.

And, when all was said and done, secure a win was exactly what Tottenham managed.

A hard-fought affair, during which clear-cut chances proved few and far between, was eventually decided by a solitary goal.

With 15 minutes to go at Turf Moor, Erik Lamela’s whipped corner from the right was flicked on by Harry Kane, with Heung-min Son having been on hand to nod home into the top corner of Nick Pope’s goal:

Tottenham’s dynamic duo

As outlined above, meanwhile, as well as proving the key moment in securing a testing 3 points for Spurs, Son’s goal tonight also marked a significant one in the Premier League’s record books.

In combining versus Burnley, Harry Kane and Heung-min Son, as a duo, moved into joint-2nd on the all-time list when it comes to direct goal contributions.

The pair have matched the tallies of both Robert Pires and Thierry Henry, and David Silva and Sergio Aguero.

The only duo to have ever combined for more Premier League goals than Kane and Son are now Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba:
