Michael Owen has claimed that Harry Kane and Son Heung-min are ‘head and shoulders above’ any other partnership across the Premier League.
Tottenham’s dynamic duo caused West Ham United all sorts of problems throughout the encounter on Sunday, with the pair being involved in all three of the home side’s goals.
Kane picked up the ball at the edge of the box, drove forward and tried to find Son with a low cross, which was turned into his own net by Kurt Zouma to put Antonio Conte’s men 1-0 up.
The England striker then picked up the ball in midfield and produced a perfectly-weighted through ball to the South Korean, who made half a yard for himself before thrashing it into the roof of the net on 24 minutes.
Son then sealed the result in the 88th minute after he was put through on goal by Kane’s flicked header.
Son’s two goals on Sunday meant that the pair had extended their record-breaking partnership to 39 goals (Sky Sports).
Owen believes that no other striker partnership comes close to the Tottenham duo.
The former Liverpool striker told Premier League Productions (20/03/22 at 6:45 pm): “Great players have this instinct together. They have this wavelength that just gets it.
“They have got that between them. They look as if they get on as well. Both of them are brilliant finishers. Both of them are brilliant assisters.
“These two really are standouts together. They are head and shoulders above anything else in the team and in the league, as a partnership, they are phenomenal.”

If Kane stays at Spurs for another couple of years, he and Son will quite easily have around 50-60 goal combinations. If that does happen, one would expect that record to potentially stand for many decades to come.
