Tottenham return to top of PL with a comfortable derby win against Arsenal


Tottenham 2-0 Arsenal

Son Heung-min and Harry Kane continued their remarkable form with a goal and an assist each as Tottenham returned to the top of the Premier League with a north London derby win against Arsenal.

Son collected Kane’s pass to curl in a superb opener from 25 yards.

And Son then found Kane to crash in off the underside of the crossbar as Jose Mourinho’s side proved lethal on the counter-attack yet again.

Defeat left Mikel Arteta’s subdued visitors 15th in the table.

Son and Kane have now combined for 31 Premier League goals, the second most of any duo after Chelsea’s Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard with 36.

Eleven of those goals have come in 2020-21 – while Son now has as many goals in the league this season as Arsenal.

Kane also became the top scorer in north London derbies with his 11th goal against the Gunners, who dominated the second half without seriously threatening.
