HARRY KANE AND SON-HEUNG MIN COMBINE BEAUTIFULLY FOR TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR

Harry Kane and Son-Heung Min have taken the Premier League by a storm this season. Both these forwards under Jose Mourinho have exploded under the scene forming a devasting counter-attacking duo. Kane now has 10 goals and 11 assists in the Premier League, meanwhile his counterpart Son has 12 goals and five assists.

The attacking duo together has contributed to 55 goals for Tottenham Hotspur so far this season in the Premier League. Their telepathic chemistry was on display against Leeds United as well, as Harry Kane found Son-Heung Min in the box from an early cross to secure their second goal. Kane and Son have been instrumental for Jose Mourinho this season and the fitness levels of both these players will be crucial if Spurs are to win some silverware this season.
