Harry Kane and Son Heung-min break Premier League record as Tottenham beat Leeds

Harry Kane and Son Heung-min were both on the scoresheet as Tottenham won their first Premier League match in five by beating Leeds 3-0.

In doing so, the dynamic duo broke a Prem record with England captain Kane providing the assist for Son’s goal.

It means the pair have now combined for 13 goals in the league this season – the most for any duo in a single campaign.

The two are also responsible to 76 per cent of Tottenham’s Premier League goals this season with Jose Mourinho’s side impressing.

They had gone four without a win though before seeing off Leeds with Kane netting from the penalty spot to open the scoring.

The penalty was awarded after Ezgian Alioski was adjudged to have tripped Steven Bergwijn with Kane scoring just days after the birth of his boy Louis.

Son doubled the lead two minutes before the break with his 100th Tottenham goal before Toby Alderweireld’s 50th minute header sealed victory.

On Son’s relationship with Kane, Tottenham boss Mourinho said: "The understanding is good and against Leeds it was important to have mobility in attack. If you stay in static positions you give them an easy job.

"The movement of Harry Kane in appearing on the right and Sonny in the finishing position fitted well with our gameplan.”

It wasn’t all good for Tottenham though with Matt Doherty dismissed in the 90th minute for a second yellow card.

Attentions for Spurs will now turn towards Tuesday’s League Cup semi-final with Brentford, though Son was relishing in Saturday’s performance.

He said: "Obviously I couldn't wait [to score 100]. I'm very happy and very grateful for the team-mates and everyone who has supported me.
