Less than a half-hour after Tottenham Hotspur teammate Harry Kane scored a stunner Saturday, Son Heung-min matched Kane's goal with one of the best of the English Premier League season.
The South Korean star went box-to-box and charged past Burnley's hapless defense in Spurs' 4-1 win over the visitors at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Entering Saturday, Son had a goal and four assists in four matches under new Tottenham manager José Mourinho. The 27-year-old's stunning strike Saturday could only build on a strong first impression.
Jose on Son earlier this week: “I’m here for 10/12 days, I’m in love with that guy so I can imagine the people that is here with him five years.— Charlie Eccleshare (@CDEccleshare) December 7, 2019
“Fantastic player, fantastic boy. Everybody in the club is so so happy with him.”
Kane, for his part, opened the scoring with a 25-yard effort in the fifth minute and did his best to match Son's goal with a right-footed strike in the second half.

The England striker's finishes were impressive, but you won't see a goal better than Son's solo effort all season.
