The Top Five Most Lethal Partnerships In Premier League History

Heung-Min Son and Harry Kane are the most lethal partnership in Premier League history, stats reveal.

And it's the Spurs double-act who come out on top based on goals scored when they've played together. Kane has notched 67, with Son's 36 strikes bringing the tally up to 102.

That figure is less than the 162 Arsenal legends Robert Pires and Thierry Henry managed in their time playing together, but Kane and Son have a better goals per game ratio.

Mo Salah and Sadio Mane come in second with 89 goals and a ratio of 1.26 goals per game, with Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling notching 100 goals (1.22 goals per game) when they've both been on the pitch for Manchester City.

Completing the list is Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres, who combined excellently under the tutelage of Rafa Benitez at Liverpool. They hit 81 goals - 52 from Torres and 29 from Gerrard and had a goals per game ratio of 1.12.

With 26 in total, Kane and Son have assisted each other's goals more than Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney (25), Torres and Gerrard (24), Aguero and Sterling (22), Salah and Mane (20) and Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole (14).

However, Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba lead the way with a joint goals participation of 45 - which places them just ahead of Henry and Pires on 40.
