Son Heung-min has sent a warning to Premier League rivals that his devastating partnership with Tottenham teammate Harry Kane won’t fade as the two look to improve a notable entry in the English top division record books.

Son Heung-min has dished out serious warning to Premier League rivals to be ready for another partnership with Harry Kane

No other tandem has been as productive in the modern period, and in the 2021–22 season, Kane and Son proved that they are the best duo in the Premier League.

They are on the verge of making the almost perfect partnership of Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard of Chelsea nothing when compared to theirs.

Son and Kane are currently five goals ahead of the competition after combining for a remarkable haul of 41 goals. However, due to their mutual “greed,” both players intend to set an even higher standard in the 2022–23 season.

Can Son and Kane score more goals together?

Son and Kane will look to get Spurs off to a fast start when they face Southampton at home on August 6 in the opening match of the new Premier League season.

There is more to come from a lethal striking duo, according to a highly regarded South Korean international who shared the Golden Boot last season.

He told GQ Korea: “I listened to Kane’s interview, in which he claimed that he spends more time with me than his wife. However, the truth is that. Additionally, Kane and I spend more time together on the field than I do with my parents at home.

“We are really close. We understand each other really well, and we also know how the other is off the pitch. Kane and I both know what the other likes. It’s really special.”

“We have already made 41 goals together. What Kane and I really have in common is that we both have a lot of greed and have the strong will to always improve. Even beyond football skills, our mindsets are similar.

“I want to continue the record that I have set with a team-mate like this, although our record will be broken one day. Even when we’re training, if one of us makes an assist for the other’s goal, we joke around saying, ‘Hey, it’s our 42nd goal now?’”

What motivates Son?

Over the course of his seven years at Tottenham, the 30-year-old has established himself as a global superstar, but he freely confesses to drawing inspiration from others.

One player he holds in particular respect is a Brazil international on the books at Paris Saint-Germain; it was discovered last season that Son frequently asks other well-known athletes if they are aware of who he is.

Regarding his favorite players, he continued, “Neymar is a guy who I really like, and he has been a big source of inspiration for me in football.

“I recently talked to a Brazilian player on my team and joked, ‘Does Neymar know me?’ and he responded, ‘Sonny, like we talk about Neymar, they also talk about you and Kane.’”

Are they the best duo in the history of the Epl?

According to statistics, Son Heung-min and Harry Kane are the Premier League’s most productive duo ever.

This was confirmed by Son’s curled pass, which Kane half-volleyed past Ederson on Saturday, putting the duo on a par with Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard with 36 Premier League goal combinations.

However, a closer examination of the data (as well as a review of their goal combinations) reveals how exceptional the Kane-Son duo is.

First off, of all the goal-combinations in the Premier League, they are by far the most equitable, with Son providing 19 assists (53%) for Kane and the England striker providing 17 (47%), making them both equally responsible for Spurs’ goals.

The closest in percentage terms are former Arsenal players Robert Pires (59%) and Thierry Henry (41%), whose partnership is significantly more balanced than any of its predecessors.

The other Kane entry in this particular hall of fame is his connection with Christian Eriksen, who generated 90% of the duo’s combinations (19 assists to Kane’s two), and who represents the other end of the spectrum.
