One of the Premier League’s classic derby match-ups deserves great goals, and Tottenham Hotspur have brought two to Sunday’s North London Derby at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Heung-min Son and Harry Kane assisted each other as Tottenham built a 2-0 halftime lead.
Harry Kane continued his habit of dropping inside his own half to be a terrific hold-up player, turning right cut to a striding Son.
The South Korea drove toward the box and cut right as Rob Holding and the Arsenal defense gave him room to operate on the left.
It’s the 28-year-old’s 10th goal of the PL season and 13th across all competitions. The goal marks his third-straight North London Derby appearance with a goal or an assist.
Kane then took a cut pass from Son and put a blistering shot into the top of the goal to make it 2-0 heading into halftime.
Tottenham is bidding to go atop the Premier League table with a win, and Son and Kane strike have them on pace through 45 minutes in London.
