Merciless Harry: Kane scored against all 30 Premier League opponents he faced

One season wonder. That's how opponent's fans called out Harry Kane after his breakout 2014/2015 season. The mocking chants awaited the English striker at every terrace, home and away, but it seems that it only fueled Harry.

Tottenham's key player has led the team to another victory in the Premier League, 3:0 (2:0) against Leeds United. With the Englishman scoring the opening penalty and assisting for the second. Making Kane achieve a notable, impressive, awe-worthy milestone - scoring against all 30 Premier League teams he faced! 30 out 30! The biggest success rate out of all players who faced more than one opponent.

Kane scored from a penalty, his ninth consecutive successfully converted spot-kick, before assisting Heung min Son for the second goal. His 10th goal in the league and 11th assist! Making the Spurs' number nine the first player in European top five leagues to reach double digits in both goals and assists!

Tottenham's striker has now most goal involvements in the league, three more than Bruno Fernandes and four than his favourite colleague Sonny.

Harry equalled the Premier League record for most assists for a teammate in a single season at nine for Son, same as Mike Newell had for Alan Shearer in the 1995/1996 season at Blackburn, and Stan Collymore had for Robbie Fowler the same year at Liverpool. But Kane achieved it in 16 games.

They are now hunting for the most goals contributions by a Premier League duo and Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard who combined for 36 goals overall. Kane and Son are at 32 so far!

Harry Kane and Son Heung-min have now combined for 13 goals in the Premier League this season - no duo has ever combined for more in a single campaign in the competition. These two account for 76% of the 29 goals THFC has scored in the league this season, 22.

"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," their manager Jose Mourinho said.

Overall, in 24 games, Kane has scored 17 goals and made 14 assists. A goal involvement every 59 minutes on average!
