Southampton 2-5 Tottenham: Son Scores Four Goals from Four Harry Kane Assists

Interestingly, Tottenham striker Harry Kane supplied all four assists for his South Korean teammate in what was a quite a mouth watering game.

Danny Ings scored twice as the consolation for an otherwise dominant performance from Son and Kane.

Danny Ings put Southampton 1-0 up in the first-half, before Son brought the sides level just before the break.

Son then added his second shortly after the restart, proceeding to complete his hat-trick on 64 minutes after once again taking advantage of the Saints’ ludicrously high back-line.

The 28-year-old then scored his fourth of the game on 73 minutes from another Kane assist in what was a bonkers final 45 minutes at St Mary’s.

Kane himself got on the scoresheet late on to make it 5-1, capping off a wonderful performance from England’s captain.

Ings added his second of the game from the penalty spot in the final few seconds of the 90, a mere consolation on the day.

Last week, on the opening weekend of the 2020/2021 English Premier League season, Everton beat Tottenham 1-0 to slump Jose Mourinho to his first defeat as full time manager.

But with today’s performance, coupled with the arrival of Gareth Bale on loan from Real Madrid, the special one means business.
