Heung-Min Son of Tottenham Hotspur in the English Premier League took the lead in the victory with two assists in the match against leaders Manchester City.



Tottenham defeated Manchester City 3-2 in the away match of the 2021-2022 EPL Round 26 held at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England, with Heung-Min Son's multi-assist, Kane's multi-goal, and Dejan Klusevsky's one goal and one assist.



Heung-Min Son, who started as a starter, played 80 minutes and provided two assists, scoring nine goals and five assists in the regular season this season.



Including 1 goal and 1 assist in the UEFA Europa Conference League, he has recorded 10 goals and 6 assists in official matches this season.



In particular, Heung-Min Son scored his 36th goal in the EPL with Kane in the 14th minute of the second half of the day, and was on par with Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba (36 goals), who had the record for the most in this category.




Tottenham Hotspur, which had been sluggish with three straight losses, succeeded in reviving the atmosphere by defeating Manchester City and rising to the 7th place in the league (with 39 points, 12 wins, 3 draws and 8 losses).



Manchester City maintained the top spot in the EPL (with 63 points, 20 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses), but ended their 15-game unbeaten streak (14 wins, 1 draw) in the regular league on this day.



Tottenham Hotspur, with Kane, Heung-Min Son and Klusevsky in the lead, scored the opening goal in the first four minutes of the game.



Heung-Min Son, who drove the ball in the course of the counterattack, lured the opposing defender and the goalkeeper and passed it to the center, and Klusevsky scored a left-footed shot from the penalty area into the goal.




This is Klusevsky's first goal since moving to Tottenham this month.



Then Man City did not stand still.



Ilkay Gundogan, who hit the post with a right-footed shot in the 21st minute of the first half, balanced it with a goal in the 33rd minute.



After a Raheem Sterling cross was cleared by Tottenham goalie Hugo Lloris, Gundogan quickly kicked the ball in.



Spurs faced off 1-1 in the second half and saw an opportunity to run again.



In the 9th minute of the second half, Son Heung-min, who received a pass stabbed by Kane, shot with his left foot near the right side of the penalty arc, and the opposing goalkeeper gave it to the opposing goalkeeper.



However, after 5 minutes, Son Heung-min and Kane scored goals.



Kane finished the cross from Heung-Min Son from the left outside of the box.



It is the second time this season that the 'Son K Duo' have scored goals in the regular league, and it is the first time in four months since the 8th round with Newcastle United on October 18 last year.



Considered one of the best attacking combos, if they collaborate on one more goal, they will surpass Lampard-Drogba and set the record for the most goals in EPL history.



Kane shook the net once in the 28th minute of the second half, but the goal was not counted as offside.



Tottenham, who swallowed the disappointment, seemed to miss the win by conceding an equalizer from a penalty kick to Riyad Mahrez of Manchester City in extra time in the second half.



But the match is not over.



In the 50th minute of the second half, Tottenham took the lead by one goal, as Kane scored a dramatic header from a cross from Klusevsky.



With this, Tottenham have recorded a double (win both matches) against Manchester City this season.
