Heung-min Son proves his worth to Spurs with four-goal supershow at Southampton

Heung-min Son scored four times and Harry Kane created four assists and netted himself in an extraordinary game which saw Tottenham come from behind to beat Southampton 5-2.

After a disallowed goal for each side in the first half, Danny Ings gave the hosts a deserved lead on 32 minutes after he brilliantly latched onto Kyle Walker-Peters' pass and finished low past Hugo Lloris.

Spurs were beginning to toil but against the run of play got themselves back into it just before half-time after Kane whipped an early ball into Son who fired past Alex McCarthy in the Saints net.

Many may have predicted a fairly even second-half, but Spurs instead ran riot, with Southampton's defence all over the place.

Son got his second just two minutes after the break when he raced away from his markers after Kane's through ball and coolly finished.

And it was the same duo who combined to see Son complete his hat-trick after a lovely chipped pass set him free to score again.

Amazingly, they weren't done there, as on 73 minutes Kane was the provider for a fourth time as his wonderful cross found Son to chip over McCarthy.

And Kane finally got the goal he deserved eight minutes later after he tapped home as Erik Lamela hit the post.

There was still time for Southampton to get a late consolation through an Ings penalty, but the game will be remembered for two wonderful individual performances.

The result sees Spurs recover from their opening day defeat at home to Everton, and they will be hoping to get some momentum going with three games to come in the next week.

They face Leyton Orient in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday, Macedonian side Shkendija in the Europa League on Thursday and finally Newcastle in the Premier League on Sunday.
