Harry Kane and Son Heung-min have now combined for a total of 14 goals this season, beating a long-standing record that has been held for more than 24 years.

Kane and Son have undoubtedly been the main driving force behind Tottenham’s season so far.

The England captain has scored 24 times in all competitions so far this season while the South Korean has found the back of the net 18 times.

The pair seem to have an almost telepathic understanding, combining brilliantly on many occasions this season.

Although Gareth Bale also got in the act with another brace in Tottenham’s 4-1 win over Crystal Palace yesterday, it was Kane who was once again the star of the show for the home side, scoring two and picking up two assists.

Kane’s second and Tottenham’s fourth goal of the evening was set up by Son – the 14th time the pair have combined for a goal in the Premier League this season.

They beat the record set by Blackburn duo Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton, who combined for 13 goals in the 1994/95 campaign.

Spurs Web Opinion

With eleven more games left in the league this season, Kane and Son have a real opportunity to go well clear of Sutton and Shearer and set a record that is unlikely to be beaten for a long time. The fact that defences now also have to worry about marking Bale might free up Kane and Son to potentially do even more damage.
