Harry Kane and Son Heung-min have been named in The Guardian’s list of the hundred best male footballers of 2020.

The voting was conducted by 41 judges from 71 countries with exactly 9,640 votes cast.

Kane and Son have both begun the season in amazing form and are on course to achieving the most productive seasons of their careers so far.

With around a third of the season gone, Kane has already notched up 16 goals and 13 assists in all competitions while Son has scored 14 and set up another 7.

Both players have reinvented themselves a little, with the England captain often playing as a No.10 while the South Korean has spent much less time on the flank and is getting into goalscoring positions more often.

The duo has have combined to deadly effect on several occasions this season and their stellar form has been the main reason behind the strong star Jose Mourinho’s men have made to the campaign.

While Kane ranks in 20th spot according to The Guardian’s list of the top 100 players, Son comes in at 22nd place.

Surprisingly, both players have dropped in the rankings from the 2019 list which had Kane at 15th and Son at 19th.

Spurs Web Opinion

These sorts of lists always have blind spots as it is impossible for any panel to ranks players who play in different leagues and for teams with varying ambitions. I personally think that Lloris certainly deserves to be in the top 100 given the form he has been in since returning from his injury.
