Son Heung-min and Harry Kane made Premier League history during Tottenham's thrashing of Southampton on Sunday.

Southampton took the lead in thecontest 32 minutes in through Danny Ings, but Son latched onto a perfectly weighted Kane pass to hit an equaliser right on half-time,sparking a significant momentum shift.

The South Korea international grabbed his second with another expert finish just after the restart, and completed his hat-trick just past the hour after latching onto another incisive through ball from Tottenham's No.10.

Son went on to grab his fourth afterbeing set up by Kane once again, before the England international got his name on the scoresheet with eight minutes left to play.

Ings notched his second goal of the game in stoppage time, but it proved to be nothing more than a consolation for a Southampton side who are now winless after their first two fixtures of the new campaign.

Kane laid onall four of Son's goals against the Saints, becoming the first man to assist the same player four times in a single match in the Premier League era.

The Spurs frontman is the first English player to have ever assisted four goals in a Premier League fixture, and the sixth to achieve the feat in the competition's history.

Kane is also the first man to have been directly involved in five goals since Mohamed Salahin March 2018, whenthe Liverpool forward grabbedfour goals and an assist to inspire a 5-0 win against Watford.
