Harry Kane has spoken about his understanding with Son Heung-min and admitted that it was fantastic to have fans back at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the North London derby.

Kane and Son both got on the scoresheet in the 2-0 win over Arsenal on Sunday, with the duo setting up each other’s goals.

The two goals against the Gunners means that Kane and Son have combined for eleven goals already this season, just two behind the record of 13 goal combinations in a single top flight season currently held by Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton (Daily Mail).

When asked about their interplay in the derby, Kane told Sky Sports (as relayed by Football.London): “We’re just feeling good. Understanding each other’s game well. The way we’re setting up is suiting us.

“[Against Arsenal] it was an easy pass and he had a fantastic finish. We’ve got a good understanding but it’s the same with everyone on the pitch.

“The way everyone works and moves allows us to create that space. So we’ve got to keep it going.”

Although there were only 2000 fans attending the game, they seemed to make a noticeable difference, with Jose Mourinho hailing their support through the ninety minutes.

Kane admitted that playing in front of supporters for the first time in more than eight months provided a real boost to the players.

When asked about how it was to have fans back, the England captain said: “Incredible, incredible. The atmosphere was great today and we’ve been looking forward to getting them back in the stadium.

“You can still hear them now, everyone’s excited. When you’re winning games, you go home happy. That was the most important thing.

“Great night, great to have supporters back, it made a real difference. Just to see their faces, hear their voices, was fantastic. We obviously wanted to send them home happy and we did that.”
