Harry Kane and Son Heung-min have had a remarkable understanding ever since they first became Tottenham team-mates and against Leeds on Saturday they etched their names into Premier League history.

When Kane laid on the pass for Son to score Tottenham's final goal in their 4-0 drubbing of Marcelo Bielsa's side, it clocked up the 37th goal combination in the league between the South Korean star and the England captain.

The two strike partners moved joint top of the table for goal combinations with Chelsea's Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba after last week's thrilling 3-2 win at Manchester City.

And now they are in the clear as the undisputed best partnership the league has ever seen.

Kane tried to explain what makes their partnership so special.

"We've been playing with each other for a long, long time and we understand each others games well," he said. 

"When I drop deep Sonny knows where to run and we enjoy playing together."
