‘Son-Ke combination’, equal to the PL legend ‘Lampard-Drogba’ duo
Son Heung-min and Kane once again topped the Premier League’s all-time scoring assist combination record.
Tottenham drew 2-2 in a home game against Manchester United in the 33rd round of the 2022/23 English Premier League held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 28th (Korean time).
Tottenham conceded the opening goal to Jadon Sancho in the 7th minute of the first half, and even conceded an additional goal to Marcus Rashford in the 44th minute of the first half, recalling the nightmare of the previous match against Newcastle.
Thanks to Pedro Poro’s pursuit goal in the 11th minute of the second half and Son Heung-min’s equalizer in the 34th minute of the second half, we were able to obtain one point.
The performance of the ‘Sonke Duo’ was outstanding in this match as well. Kane recorded 5 times, the most chances created in the game, and seemed to focus on helping rather than scoring, and Son Heung-min aimed to score by breaking through the dribble and hitting the goal directly.
In the end, in the 34th minute of the second half, Son Heung-min, who received Kane’s sharp cross, finished it with an equalizer and scored a joint goal. He rescued the team from a losing streak.
In England, Kane and Son Heung-min were ranked first and second in the team, respectively, and recognized their best performance in the game.
In the midst of this, the two players left their names in the Premier League record with this goal collaboration.
On the 28th, statistics specialist Opta shared the record of Son Heung-min and Kane’s scoring collaboration. Opta said, “In the history of the Premier League, Harry Kane gave Son Heung-min more than 24 assists, and there is no case in which a player recorded an assist to a teammate.”
Kane recorded a whopping 24 assists only with a pass to Son Heung-min, which is the highest ever in the Premier League, tying with the 24 assists Frank Lampard handed to Didier Drogba.
Son Heung-min and Kane have already scored a total of 46 goals in the Premier League, which the two players shared goals and assists. It is a situation where there is a big gap with Lampard and Drogba (36 times), who are in second place. 메이저놀이터
