Heung-min Son was at his mercurial best once again last Sunday afternoon.
Son has now moved onto 19 Premier League goals for the 2021/22 season and only Liverpool‘s Mohamed Salah currently has more.
There’s absolutely no doubting that Son is one of Spurs’ greatest signings of the Premier League era and he is already a bona fide club legend.
The 29-year-old joined the club in the summer of 2015 from Bayer Leverkusen for a fee of around £22 million.
And since arriving in north London for that bargain price, Son has scored the sixth-most Premier League goals.
Using Transfermarkt, we’ve worked out the 20 players with the best goal records since the start of the 2015/16 season and you can take a look at the list in full below.
The 20 players with the most Premier League goals since the start of the 2015/16 season
20. Kevin De Bruyne (Man City) – 53 goals
19. Joshua King (Bournemouth, Everton & Watford) – 53 goals
18. Michail Antonio (West Ham) – 54 goals
17. Alexandre Lacazette (Arsenal) – 54 goals
16. Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace) – 55 goals
15. Anthony Martial (Man United) – 56 goals
14. Gabriel Jesus (Man City) – 58 goals
13. Marcus Rashford (Man United) – 59 goals
12. Callum Wilson (Bournemouth & Newcastle) – 59 goals
11. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal) – 68 goals
10. Roberto Firmino (Liverpool) – 71 goals
9. Riyad Mahrez (Leicester & Man City) – 73 goals
8. Romelu Lukaku (Everton, Man United & Chelsea) – 76 goals
7. Raheem Sterling (Man City) – 88 goals
6. Heung-min Son (Tottenham) – 89 goals
5. Sadio Mane (Southampton & Liverpool) – 99 goals
4. Sergio Aguero (Man City) – 106 goals
3. Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) – 117 goals
2. Jamie Vardy (Leicester) – 123 goals
- Harry Kane (Tottenham) – 155 goals
So, Mane and Salah are the only wide forwards ahead of Son, while Kane leads the way with an enormous total of 155 goals – over 30 more than Vardy in second place.
The Spurs duo are pretty decent, aren’t they?
Antonio Conte will need both at their best for the remainder of the campaign as they bid to finish in the top four.
Spurs are currently two points behind Arsenal and face a daunting trip to Anfield on Saturday evening.

But Son and Kane will certainly have Liverpool fans a bit worried, though…
