Harry Kane was involved in all four of Tottenham’s goal against Crystal Palace, as the hosts managed to win 4-1 against Palace. Son Heung-min assisted Kane’s second goal in the match, which set a record for the most goals assisted for one another in a season. And what’s more, the season is far from over.
Elsewhere on the pitch, Gareth Bale also had a good night out, scoring two against Palace and creating great chances throughout the game, giving the opposition’s defenders barely a moment’s worth of rest when he had the ball at his feet.
Kane now has the most number of assists in the Premier League this season, with 13 to his name. He is also joint second in the race for the Golden Boot with 16 goals this campaign. All in all, Kane’s 29 goal contributions this season is the most and is undisputed at this point.
While Tottenham might be having a tumultuous season, Harry Kane and Son Heung-min have had their best season together, as well as individually. And the stats are there to show for it. In the league, Spurs are in sixth place, level on points with fellow London club West Ham United.
But they will have a chance to lift silverware for the first time in over a decade with the League Cup final against Manchester City coming up later in the season. But Mourinho will be expected to deliver the Europa League trophy at the end of the season much more than the League Cup since they are favourites in the competition.
