Son Heung-Min joins Salah, Aguero and host of greats in Premier League’s 4-goal club



Tottenham Hotspur got their 2020-21 Premier League season up and running on Sunday with a free-scoring 5-2 victory at Southampton that was spearheaded by Son Heung-Min.

On a weekend that saw the Premier League peppered with 39 goals across eight games, Spurs matched Saturday’s contribution from Everton (who beat Spurs 1-0 in their opening game of the season) by adding five to the overall tally.

Son scored four goals, all of which were assisted by Harry Kane — the first time that one player has scored four goals all laid on by the same teammate in a Premier League game.

Not content with his record-setting support play, Kane then also managed to get on the score-sheet and flesh out the rout by adding a fifth goal for Spurs in the latter stages.

Only seven players have ever mustered four assists in one Premier League game. Kane is the latest, joining Dennis Bergkamp, Jose Antonio Reyes, Cesc Fabregas, Emmanuel Adebayor, Santi Cazorla and Dusan Tadic.
