Kane backs Spurs to "do something special" this season


Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min are in the form of their lives.

The pair have been genuinely amazing throughout the start of the 2020/21 season and Son is currently the top scorer in the Premier League with eight goals.

Kane has eight assists to his name, too, double that of John McGinn, the Aston Villa midfielder, who is in second.

They linked up again on Monday night, as Kane’s flicked header was met by the South Korea international, who sent the ball past Nick Pope.

Their link-up has paid dividends before, as the two assisted each other against West Ham United and Manchester United.

Son and Kane have been so good together that one has to think they could spearhead a title challenge this season under Jose Mourinho’s management.


And Kane has already echoed that sentiment, insisting after the win over Burnley that the club could be capable of achieving something remarkable this season.

Speaking to BBC Sport, he said: “It is great. Me and Sonny have had a nice little partnership going recently and hopefully it continues.

"I think having more understanding when I'm dropping deep for him to run in behind [is the difference]. It is just confidence as well.


"Even today it was not an amazing assist but it fell well for Sonny."

He added: "We know with the team we have got and the players we have got we can do something special.

"It's still early on [to talk about a title challenge]. We need to take each game as it comes. I know it's a cliche but we still have a lot to learn and build on but I think nights like this will give us a lot of confidence.

"These are the games you need three points if you are going to be up there at the end of the season."

GIVEMESPORT’S Harry Sherlock says…

Why not?

With Kane playing as he is, and Son in the form of his life, Spurs could well challenge at the sharp end of the league table.

The England captain has it right with his claim that the games against Burnley, where the opposition dig in and make it difficult for 90 minutes, are the ones that they need to win.


After six games of the season, Spurs are two points off the top, and are approaching some excellent form.

Stranger things have certainly happened…
