Harry Kane claims Tottenham ‘can do something special’ this season after he and Son Heung-Min combined for a ninth time in the 2020-2021 campaign.
Kane assisted Son once again with a flick-on to see Spurs beat Burnley 1-0 at Turf Moor to lift them up to fifth in the Premier League.
Kane is excited about the club’s current form – having gone unbeaten in 10 matches in all competitions, progressing through to the Europa League group stages and the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup – but insists ‘too early’ to discuss the Premier League title.

Speaking of their partnership, Kane told BBC Sport: ‘It is great.
‘Me and Sonny have had a nice little partnership going recently and hopefully it continues.
‘I think having more understanding when I’m dropping deep for him to run in behind [is the difference]. It is just confidence as well.
‘Even today it was not an amazing assist but it fell well for Sonny.’
It is the 29th time the duo have linked up for a goal in the Premier League – making them the joint second-best partnership in the league’s history, with only Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard above them on 36.
Individually, Son is the leading goalscorer with eight, while Kane has been involved in 13 goals this season – breaking the record for most goals and assists contributed within six games.
