Tottenham Hotspur duo Harry Kane and Heung-min Son broke a Premier League record as Spurs came from two goals down to earn a draw against Manchester United this evening.
No player in Premier League history has assisted a single teammate to score more times than Kane has for Son (24).
Their tally equals the number set by Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba when they were together at Chelsea.
Son scored in the dying minute to give Tottenham one point after they fought hard in the second half.
Spurs went behind early in the first half, with Jadon Sancho opening the scoring in the seventh minute.
United were well and truly on top, and Marcus Rashford doubled the lead just before the break.
Whatever interim manager Ryan Mason said at half-time must have worked, as his players came out with more intent.
Eleven minutes into the second half, they pulled one back through big-money signing Pedro Porro.
A dangerous cross from Ivan Perisic came out to the wing-back, and he struck it sweetly beyond David De Gea.
Spurs created several chances but didn’t put the ball in the back of the net until the 79th minute.
Cristian Romero won a headed duel, and Kane picked up the ball before slicing the Man Utd defence apart with an inch-perfect cross for his partner to score.
Man United manager Erik ten Hag said they planned to stop Kane, but it did not work.
United remain in fourth position as Newcastle United beat Everton tonight to consolidate third place.
The Red Devils are still six points clear of fifth-placed Spurs and have two games in hand.
Spurs can take the result as an encouraging sign after their miserable time over the past week, with the players showing fight and spirit to bounce back from adversity.
Man United welcome high-flying Aston Villa to Old Trafford, while Spurs face Liverpool on Sunday.
