What a game!
Spurs were absolutely dire for the first 45 minutes of their clash against Southampton this afternoon, meaning very few people could have predicated what happened in the second half.
Danny Ings gave the home side the lead with a beautifully taken strike just after the half hour mark and it looked as though they would carry that lead into the interval. However, a goal from Heung-Min Son just before halftime ensured the teams would go in level.
The second half was a very different story.
Spurs would dominate Southampton, exploiting their high like with balls in behind. Son would star, scoring four goals in the game in total.
What is even more remarkable is that Harry Kane provided the assist for each one of those strikes.
This was the first occasion in Premier League history that a player had assisted one of his teammates four times in the same game.
The first time in Premier League history a player has scored four goals with another player assisting all four goals.
This is truly bonkers. 🤯 https://t.co/X7Uyc5oVL2

Kane would grab a goal of his own before the end of the game, with a late penalty from Danny Ings meaning that Spurs would ultimately run out 5-2 winners.
With both Son and Kane hugely popular in the game, we would imagine there are a lot of happy fantasy football players out there today.
