Harry Kane's Awareness Praised After Genius Assist For Son Heung-min Goal

Harry Kane showed off his brilliant awareness on Saturday evening, as he set up Son Heung-min's second goal with a moment of genius.

Kane and Son are statistically the greatest partnership in the history of the Premier League, having combined for more goals than any other duo since 1992.

Back in February, the England captain's brilliant assist for his Tottenham Hotspur teammate took them to 37 goals together, beating the 36 by Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard.

However they haven't stopped since then and on Saturday they were at it again, as Son scored a hat-trick in a 4-0 win over Aston Villa.

The South Korean's second goal came courtesy of a delicate little flicked header by Kane, which left the former Bayer Leverkusen striker running through on goal, and it showed the pure class of Kane's awareness as he took a quick look before executing the perfect header.

It was the 21st time that Kane had earned an assist for a Son goal, and only Lampard has provided the same player more often in the Premier League.

The Chelsea legend was to thank for 24 of Drogba's goals, when the pair were at Stamford Bridge, and it's difficult to see a situation where the Spurs pair don't pass that record too.

Kane was linked with Manchester City last summer and there's been reports he could still leave north London this summer.

However if Antonio Conte's side do stay make into the top four this season, then it's less likely the 28-year-old will want to leave the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

According to one report, the two forwards could even be joined by Carlos Tevez next season, in what would be one of the most surprising transfers in recent years.
