In Saturday’s Premier League match against Liverpool at Anfield, Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min could equal Gareth Bale’s club goalscoring record. While Harry Kane has been deceiving in front of goals at times this season, Son has already had his best scoring run for Spurs in the Premier League since his arrival in 2015.

In the 2021-22 Premier League, the South Korean international has 19 goals and eight assists for Antonio Conte’s side.Only Mohamed Salah (22) has scored more goals in the Premier League this season than Son, with Cristiano Ronaldo of Manchester United only one goal behind with 18.

Son has scored 19 league goals this season without taking a penalty, and he might now become only the second Tottenham player to reach the 20-goal mark in the Premier League without taking a penalty.

Bale accomplished the feat in his final season at White Hart Lane in 2012-13, before moving to Real Madrid, and Conte emphasized Son’s importance in his pre-match press conference.

Som Hung Min Score Goal
Son Heung-min has equaled Gareth Bale’s record for Tottenham Hotspur.

“I knew him in the past, but now that I see him during a training session, I can see the player’s quality.” “He is definitely a player who wants to progress,” Conte told reporters.

“This is the main reason you see him in such good shape. He is working extremely hard, and I see him every day with the desire to improve himself and contribute to the team.

“He scores frequently, but he also contributes significantly without the ball during the game. When this occurs, I am overjoyed because it means I have a player that considers the team before himself.”

Son scored two goals and set up another in Tottenham’s 3-1 win over Leicester City in their most recent Premier League match, surpassing his previous total of 17 goals in 37 games last season.

In 321 games for Tottenham, the former Bayer Leverkusen striker has 127 goals and 73 assists, although he has not had much success versus Liverpool.

The 29-year-old equalized for Tottenham in a 2-2 draw with the Reds in North London earlier this season, but that was one of only three goals he has scored against Jurgen Klopp’s side in 12 appearances.

Tottenham are looking for their first Premier League win over Liverpool since a 4-1 thrashing at Wembley in the 2017-18 season, and Son has been on the losing side on eight of those occasions.

Son has scored 19 Premier League goals this season, six more than Kane, who has 13. The two became the Premier League’s deadliest-ever duo earlier this year, combining for 41 goals in the top tier.
