Son Heung-min scored Southampton four goals as Tottenham earned their first Premier League win of the season with a 5-2 victory at St Mary’s on Sunday.
Just 24 hours after Tottenham signed Gareth Bale, South Korea forward Son delivered a virtuoso display that showed Jose Mourinho’s side already have plenty of firepowers.
Bale has returned to Tottenham on a season-long loan from Real Madrid seven years after he left the north London club for a then-world record £85 million ($109 million) fee.
But the Wales forward will not be available until mid-October as he recovers from a knee injury, so Mourinho needs Son and Harry Kane to carry the attack until then.
No one would question the quality of that pair and they underlined the point with superb performances that led to the win.
Kane, who hit the back of the net twice in the first half only to have them ruled out for offside, capped a swaggering display with his second goal of the season.
After losing to Everton in their Premier League opener last weekend, Tottenham have lifted the gloom with this vibrant performance.
