Report: Where Heung-min Son now falls on all-time Tottenham scorers list

Heung-Min Son scored his 138th and 139th Spurs goals on Saturday at Deepdale to go into 7th in the club’s all-time top scorers list.
The South Korean scored a spectacular brace in the victory against Preston at the weekend which put Spurs in the hat for the fifth round of the FA Cup, drawing Wrexham or Sheffield United away from home.

Sonny has now scored 8 goals this season across all competitions (TransferMarkt) and both at the weekend were important in Spurs advancing.
The first was a curled finish with his left foot from the outside of the box into the left-hand corner and the second was a striker’s finish from inside the box after successfully turning the Preston defender. Spurs went on to add a third with Danjuma scoring on his debut.
Those two goals meant that Son surpassed George Hunt to enter 7th place among the all-time top-scoring Spurs players in history.
The 30-year-old currently has 138 goals in 352 appearances for the club since joining in 2015 from Bayer Leverkusen.
After the Preston win, Son told Spurs TV: “I am very very happy to help the team go to the next round.”
He now has 14 FA Cup goals and is tied in 8th with Les Bennett, Teddy Sheringham and Johnny Morrison for Spurs’ top FA Cup goal scorers.
Son is now five goals away from overtaking Jermain Defoe, who scored 143 goals for the club, to become the 6th highest Spurs scorer in the club’s history.
