Son Heung-min and Harry Kane are doing “special things” for Tottenham this season, Jose Mourinho said after they inspired Spurs to a 3-0 Premier League win over Leeds United.
Tottenham ended a run of four games without a win in the Premier League in comfortable fashion on Saturday, Son reaching a landmark in the process.
After Kane’s penalty put Spurs ahead, Son doubled their advantage with his 100th goal for the club, the England international unsurprisingly the provider.
It marked the 13th time the pair have combined for a goal in the Premier League in 2020-21, tying a record in a single season.
Toby Alderweireld converted Son’s corner to make it 3-0 early in the second half as Spurs moved within four points of Liverpool and Manchester United at the top.
Speaking to BT Sport, Mourinho said: “Of course, the understanding is good and against Leeds it was important to have that ability in attack.
“They stay man-to-man so if you stay static you give them an easy job. That movement of Harry Kane and Sonny in the finishing positions fit well.
