Son scored the winner for Spurs on 76 minutes when he headed home after Kane had headed Erik Lamela’s pass onto him.

The South Korean said: “I think we understand quite well. We spoke already so many times. But I think he is just incredible.

“I don’t have to do too much playing with him together, so I just have to run on it. Only I have to run and the ball is in front of my face and I think it’s really enjoyable playing with this guy.”

Son has scored eight goals and provided two assists in six league matches for Spurs so far this campaign.

Top-four Challenge

Tottenham are fifth in the Premier League with 11 points from six matches, just two points behind Everton and Liverpool, who are first and second respectively.

This is turning out to be a strange season where Manchester City are below West Ham United and Arsenal, while promoted club Leeds United are sixth in the table.

While some Spurs fans may hope for a title challenge this season, the main objective for the North London outfit this campaign has to be finishing in the top four.

A return to the Champions League is crucial in Spurs’ bid to achieve success in the future in terms of more finance and attracting better quality players.
