Son Heung-min, who scored his 100th Premier League goal for the first time as an Asian player against Brighton on the 8th, scored two goals in a row for the first time in the season. Perisic, who was pointed out as a dissonance due to overlapping movements, assisted Son Heung-min’s goal for two consecutive games.

Called the ‘blonde bomber’ as a player, Klinsmann scored 29 goals in his first season with Tottenham, 1994-95. In addition, in the second half of the 1997-98 season, he was loaned to Tottenham and scored 9 goals to lead the 1st division.
