Son Heung-min hits 100th goal for Tottenham in Leeds win
It has been a wonderful season for Son Heung-min, who reached a century of goals for Tottenham in Saturday's 3-0 victory over Leeds.
Son Heung-min scored his 100th goal for Tottenham in all competitions as he netted against Leeds United this afternoon, with Harry Kane the provider once again.
The South Korean forward, who moved to north London in 2015, has been in sensational form in 2020-21, and moved onto 99 Spurs goals with a cool finish on the break at Liverpool in December. Son drew a blank in his next three outings, failing to find the target as Spurs went down 2-0 to Leicester City, before he had a goal disallowed in an EFL Carabao Cup win at Stoke City and then only managed one attempt at goal in a 1-1 draw with Wolves on 27 December.

However, after Wednesday's scheduled game with Fulham was postponed, his landmark effort came against Leeds on Saturday. Kane – who has now assisted nine of Son's 12 Premier League goals this season– whipped in a brilliant cross from the right, which his strike partner swept home first time. Son's strike put Spurs 2-0 up just before half-time, with Kane's penalty having put Jose Mourinho's men ahead. It was also the 13th time Kane and Son have combined for a goal this season, which is a joint-record in a single Premier League campaign.
With 169 goals to his name, Kane is the only Spurs payer to have netted more goals than Son since September 2015. Son has scored 65 of his 100 Spurs goals in the Premier League – 35 coming from his right foot, 25 from his left, and the remainder with his head. The former Bayer Leverkusen forward has also supplemented that tally with a further 33 assists, while he has scored 15 times in the FA Cup and EFL Carabao Cup.
