Harry Kane and Son Heung-min on brink of breaking Premier League record

Harry Kane and Son Heung-min are on the brink of creating Premier League history thanks to seven seasons of telepathic interplay between the Tottenham forwards in north London.

Kane and Son were both on target in the league for the first time this season during their win over Newcastle on Sunday – with the England skipper also providing an assist for his team-mate.

Although Spurs have had a slow start to the campaign, and had only managed six goals across seven league outings before their flurry at St James' Park, their star duo look back to their best.

Breaking the record for joint-goal participation in a single season last time out, improved passing and finishing from their pair saw them combine for 14 goals.

That took their tally to 34, according to the official Premier League website, with the pass and finish at the weekend moving them onto 35.

That leaves them one behind the Premier League record of 36 which is held by Chelsea legends Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba who played together 198 times in the division.

With Manchester City icons Sergio Aguero and David Silva sitting third on the list with 29, they are level with Arsenal heroes Thierry Henry and Robert Pires.

Making up the top five are Darren Anderton and Teddy Sheringham with 27.

Kane, who almost left his boyhood club in the summer, took the Premier League awards for most goals and most assists last season despite Tottenham's league finish of seventh.

He said when asked what had changed about his game: "I’m not too sure.

"This season, when I’ve been dropping a little bit deeper, (Son) has been running in behind and that allows me to get some space, get my head up and play the passes through, maybe in recent years we haven’t been doing that.

"It’s one of them – when the confidence is high, they know if I get the ball and get turned they have a chance on goal."

Adding of the influence of Mourinho: "When the gaffer came in, he said early on that whenever I drop in, the wingers have to get in behind, there is no point in two or three players dropping deep.

"It’s something I have been doing in my game for a while but the final product is a bit better, the passing, the finishing, so it catches the eye a bit more but we take each game as it comes, each team brings something different so we try to adapt."
