Mourinho praises Kane and Son’s partnership

Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son were on target yet again for Spurs as they brushed aside Leeds United to move up to 3rd in the table. Tottenham’s lethal front-two has scored 13 goals together this season, which totals to 76% of all goals scored by Spurs in the Premier League.

Speaking after their win against Leeds, Mourinho praised his dynamic duo for their superb performances, but insisted he would like to see others scoring goals as well. The Tottenham manager added “The understanding is good. Against Leeds it was important to have mobility in attack because they mark man to man and if you stay in static positions you give them an easy job. When you have mobility it is more difficult for them.”


That movement of Kane appearing on the right side and Sonny in a finishing position, it fit well with our game plan. They are doing special things this season.”


“They are very good players, as you’ve seen for many years. They’ve played together for many years, too, that plus the way we want them to interact brings goals.”

I want more goals, especially more goals from other players, but today the second goal is great. It’s great because it was something we spoke about against a team that defends the way Leeds does, it’s very important to have mobility, so to have a striker on the right wing and a winger scoring on the front post is very important from a strategic point of view.”
