On this day, Son Heung-min, who started as a three-top left striker in a 3-4-3 formation, played a role in creating chances for his teammates while using the ground widely. He could often be seen coming down to the midfield, receiving the ball and passing it.
Tottenham’s winning goal came in extra time in the first half. In the 46th minute of the first half, Son Heung-min, who received the ball from the left side of the penalty arc through the opponent’s defense check, connected it to Kane in the middle. After receiving the pass, Kane shook the net with a right-footed turning shot in the penalty area.
It was the 44th goal jointly by Son Heung-min and Kane, who hold the record for the most joint goals in EPL history. In particular, this goal meant a lot to Kane and the Tottenham team. This is because it is Kane’s 266th goal in Tottenham’s uniform.
With this goal, Kane tied the record for Tottenham’s most goals by ‘legend’ Jimmy Greaves, who was the top goal scorer in the 1950s and 1960s. Now, with just one more goal, he becomes the player with the most goals in Tottenham club history.
Son Heung-min was replaced by Hischarlisson in the 31st minute of the second half. In the 28th minute of the first half, he received a yellow card for stepping on Kenny Tett’s ankle while competing with several opposing defenders.
