The Obvious Top Two for Tottenham

While we have Kane as number 1 in this ranking, which means Son would be number 2, it just does not feel right. So, we have Kane as 1 and Son as 1A.

Harry Kane #1 on Form

Tottenham have scored 31 goals in 10 matches this season with over 60% of those goals (19) coming from two men, Harry Kane who has 10 goals, and Son Heung-Min who has 9 Goals. What has separated Kane as Player #1 this season and has Son as #1A, has been the assists. Kane has long been known for his vision on the park, knocking the ball to the various touchlines to spread the pitch.

Now Harry Kane is looking as much forward with his passes as he is wide, and it has paid off nicely for Spurs with a handful of assists directly to Son with a nice long ball. Kane’s eight assists in all competitions would have tied Serge Aurier for the second most on the team last season, such is the form of Harry Kane.

Additionally, the Spurs talisman now has something he has not had for some time at Tottenham Hotspur, an understudy in Carlos Vinicius, which means he can get some rest, like he did against LASK and hopefully this form can last all season long for both Kane and Spurs.

Heung-Min Son #1A on Form

Heung-Min Son somehow started the season a bit off the pace yet scoring goals for fun. Then the South Korean suffered what was thought to be a significant injury only to come back and help lead the line for the demolishing of Manchester United. Since his return, whatever kinks were in Son’s game have seemed to disappear and he is back doing what he does best, attacking the goal.

Son is second on the team, just one behind Kane with his nine goals. He is also second on the team, again behind only Kane with his four assists. While the eight assists Kane has laid on make the four sound rather meager by comparison, in truth, four assists in just eight matches played is particularly good. If you extrapolate Son’s performance thus far across say a 48-match season, he would finish with some 54 goals and 24 assists. While certainly unrealistic totals and we will not even go there with Kane, Son is clearly on pace for one heck of a campaign.
