HARRY KANE and Son Heung-min became the Premier League’s deadliest duo ever as Tottenham thrashed Crystal Palace 4-1 on Sunday.
The pair linked up for their record 14th goal combination in a single season – surpassing the 13 set by Chris Sutton and Alan Shearer in 1994-95
Harry Kane and Son Heung-min have a telepathic understanding
Kane set up Gareth Bale twice for Tottenham’s first two goals before his fine effort from distance in the 52nd minute.
Shearer and Sutton’s goals came for Blackburn in their title winning campaign.
And behind them in third are Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser who combined for 12 goals in the 2018-19 season.
Les Ferdinand and Kevin Gallen are fourth – striking up a lethal understanding for QPR in 94-95.
Shearer actually features twice, also occupying fifth spot alongside Mike Newell – also for Blackburn – in 96-96.
The remainder of the list is made up of attacking pairs who combined for ten goals for three different teams.
Robbie Fowler and Stan Collymore for Liverpool, Dennis Bergkamp and Nicolas Anelka for Arsenal and Adama Traore and Raul Jimenez for Wolves.
Kane has 16 goals so far this season while Son has 13.
And after the Palace victory, asked if Kane was the best striker in the world, Jose Mourinho said: “I don’t want to say that because I’d be quite offensive for so many top strikers in Europe and the world.
“But he’s there with the best. I wouldn’t change him for anyone in this club because he means so much for us and he’s a fantastic player.”
And in January, Mourinho said: “The understanding [between Kane and Son] is good.
“That movement of Kane appearing on the right side and Sonny in a finishing position, it fits well with our game plan.
“They are doing special things this season.”
