Tottenham – West Ham 3-3 (3-0)
Spurs manager José Mourinho can look forward to the super-duo Harry Kane and Heung-min Son, who are unstoppable during the day.
Already after 15 minutes it was 3-0 in London, and the two mentioned players were involved in most of what happened on the lawn. The scores came as follows:
1-0: Already after 45 seconds the ball was in the net. Harry Kane hit a perfect ball in the back room to Son, who went inside the field and hammered the ball into goal.
2-0: Seven minutes were played when the roles were reversed. Son served Kane, who hammered the ball into goal from around 17 meters after first hitting a tunnel on his keeper. A class score.
3-0: Back Sergio Reguilon got around on the left wing and hit the box, where Kane hung in the air and stabbed in tonight’s second goal. Then it was played 16 minutes.
Tottenham – West Ham 3-3 (3-0)
GOAL: Son (1), Kane (7.16) – Balbuena (83), Sanchez (selmål 85), Lanzini (90 + 4)
Kane has had a goal-scoring pass to Son a full six times this Premier League season. Son, for his part, has given Kane an assist twice.
After Mourinho took over at Tottenham in November 2019, no player has been involved in as many goals as Kane (33) and Son (30), according to statistics agency Opta.

The duo have been involved in a total of 28 goals together, the fourth most in Premier League history between two players, according to TV 2. The former Chelsea duo Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard scored a total of 36 league goals after combining each other.
There are also no players who have scored more Premier League goals than Kane in 2020 (17). Son is in shared second place with Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and Arsenal Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (16).
One that is guaranteed to itch in both fingers and legs to play with Son and Kane, is Gareth Bale. The wing got its first minutes tonight after the transfer from Real Madrid.
He was about to crown the evening with scoring after some fine pulls, but sent the ball just outside the post.
But instead of more cheers for the home team, it was the away team that struck back with two quick goals. First, Fabian Balbuena put in 1-3 with a nice finish, before Davidson Sanchez was unlucky and put the ball in his own goal.
In overtime, Manuel Lanzini hammered the ball into the corner from long range, and manager David Moyes went bananas on the sideline. A real dream match, which will be shown worldwide.
It was thus a thriller ending in London – something we have become accustomed to seeing in the Premier League this season.
– It’s football. That’s how it happens. We must praise that West Ham did not lose faith, Mourinho told Sky Sports.
“Letting in three goals, letting them in after leading by three goals, is a real punishment and in the end deserved,” he said.
