Tottenham Hotspur finally got one in the win column in the Premier League after beating Southampton 5-2 at St. Mary's Stadium.
Jose Mourinho's men lost 1-0 on the opening weekend against Everton and were seemingly heading for another negative result after trailing early to a Danny Ings goal. However, Heung-Min Son's equaliser in the second minute of first-half stoppage time turned the tide of the contest and the Londoners ran riot in the second half as Son struck thrice and Harry Kane, who assisted all four goals, added a fifth to give their side a 5-1 lead.
Danny Ings scored from the penalty spot in the 90th minute to make 2-5, but it was Tottenham Hotspur, who were without new signings Sergio Reguilon and Gareth Bale, who took home all three points.
The South Korean created history by becoming only the second Asian player after former Manchester United midfielder Shinji Kagawa to score a hattrick, and the first to score four goals in a game in Premier League history.
5 - Harry Kane is the first player to be directly involved in 5 goals in a @PremierLeague game (1 goal, 4 assists) since Mo Salah v Watford in March 2018 (4 goals, 1 assist). It's the second time Kane has done so (also May 2017 v Leicester). Quintet. pic.twitter.com/3c4UbYzeKi— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) September 20, 2020

Harry Kane also created history, as he became only the seventh player in Premier League history to assist four goals in a single match. The Spurs skipper joined Dennis Bergkamp, Jose Antonio Reyes, Cesc Fabregas, Emmanuel Adebayor, Santi Cazorla and Dusan Tadic to achieve the feat.
While Spurs fans were obviously delighted by their star men's performances, fantasy players that had Kane and Son in their line-up were also jubilant. Here are the best reactions:
