The partnership between Harry Kane and Son Heung-min is developing into the most prolific in Premier League history.
Son headed in from Kane's flick-on to secure a 1-0 win at Burnley on Monday, making it the 29th time they have combined for a goal. It was the ninth time in six league matches this season alone.

Moments before setting up the only goal at Turf Moor, Kane cleared off the line to deny Burnley defender James Tarkowski.
While Spurs secured a third league away win thanks to Son's 10th goal in nine games in all competitions, the home form has let them down. Only two points have been collected in North London after the team threw away winning positions in stoppage time in two matches.

Tottenham, which didn't manage a shot on target in the first half at Burnley, moved up to fifth in the standings and didn't even need Gareth Bale being deployed from the bench.
“We’ve dropped points where we shouldn’t have this season so we’ve still got a lot to learn, but nights like this will definitely give us that confidence,” Kane said. “We’re just at the stage where we’ve been so close for so many years and I think the additions this season have given us more leaders on the pitch and made us more experienced."
Burnley is stuck on one point.
