Watch Tottenham's Son Heung-min score stunning solo goal vs. Burnley

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. 

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.

Watch Alisson's brilliant assist to Mo Salah to seal Liverpool win

Mo Salah's 93rd-minute goal in a 2-0 win over Manchester United on Sunday at Anfield didn't mean much to the result. 

After all, the Reds were seconds away from a victory that moved the Premier League leaders 16 points clear (with a game in hand) of second-place Manchester City. But no goal signaled the league's futility in trying to stop Liverpool's march to history quite like Salah's 11th goal of this Premier League campaign. 

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker booted a ball from his box into Manchester United's half following a corner kick, with Salah yards clear of the Red Devils' last line of defense. Daniel James caught up to Salah, but the Egyptian striker fought of his challenge to cooly finish past United keeper David de Gea. 

Alisson sprinted upfield to celebrate with a shirtless Salah, and for good reason: His assist was the first by a Liverpool keeper in nearly a decade.

With Sunday's result -- and, clearly, Liverpool's first Premier League title -- well in hand, the faithful at Anfield finally acknowledged their reality, singing "We're going to win the league" for the first time this season. 

Salah's stunner simply crystallized the inevitability of Liverpool's first top-flight title in 30 years.

Manchester United (9-7-6; 34 points) have European qualification on the line, but playing spoiler Sunday against rival Liverpool (20-1-0; 61 points) at Anfield might provide bigger motivation. 

The Reds are marching towards history, with their first Premier League title merely a formality at this point. United can end Liverpool's unbeaten run in the league -- and longer on at home -- by springing the upset Sunday, which would provide embattled Red Devils manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a needed boost down the stretch. Winning Sunday would also cut fourth-place Chelsea's lead to just two points, with two sides set to square off in a month.

Liverpool should be up for it Sunday, as Manchester United are the only club to earn points at the Reds' expense this season. Jurgen Klopp's side will be motivated to avoid a repeat at Anfield.
