Harry Kane has told ITV (broadcast on 5/2; 21:58) that the work from Son Heung-min for the third Tottenham Hotspur goal in their FA Cup win over Brighton was unbelievable.
Antonio Conte’s men are into the fifth round of the competition. They produced a hugely impressive display against the Seagulls in North London on Saturday evening.
It was Kane who opened the scoring with a sumptuous finish from outside the box. An own goal then doubled the lead after Emerson Royal’s good work down the right.
Yves Bissouma gave the visitors some hope just after the hour-mark. However, the game was largely put to bed just a few minutes later with Kane sliding in after a mistake from Adam Webster.
Kane made sure to poke the ball home. But the chance only came about after a run from Son. He burst through in a manner somewhat reminiscent of his Puskas award-winning goal of the year against Burnley in 2020.
And Kane outlined just how fortunate he felt to play alongside Son when asked about the moment of magic after the game.
“Yeah, unbelievable,” he told ITV. “We know what Sonny can do when he gets in those positions. So direct, lots of pace and he created the big chance.
“I was luckily there to sneak it in at the end. Everyone played really well today, from back to front.”
Son Heung-min returning from injury will be huge for Tottenham
Tottenham fans got the chance to see both of their new signings in action against Brighton. Meanwhile, there were impressive performances all over the pitch.
But the return of Son could be one of the biggest boosts from the win. The South Korean had missed around a month due to a hamstring injury.
In that time, he missed the second-leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final. He also missed the Premier League games against Leicester and Chelsea.
He has been outstanding throughout the season. Son remains their top goalscorer in the top-flight, with eight strikes to his name.
And if his run is a sign of what is to come, Conte’s men will certainly be the ones to watch in the top four race.
