Harry Kane and Son Heung-min are well on their way to becoming the most deadly partnership in Premier League history.

Combining five times during a single match earlier this season, as Tottenham thrashed Southampton, has propelled them up the rankings.

They now sit alongside Sergio Aguero & David Silva and Thierry Henry & Robert Pires as being the joint second-most influential partnership since the 1991/92 season.

The Spurs duo have now assisted each other for goals 29 times.

Only former Chelsea duo Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard have more goal combinations to their name, on 36.

It is an incredible stat for Kane and Son, who have had less time playing together than a host of other partnerships that have made it into the top 20.

Teddy Sheringham and Darren Anderton are also high on the list for their time together at Spurs, totalling 27 combinations.

Kane also features on the list alongside Christian Eriksen, who has since left Tottenham for Inter Milan, after linking up 21 times to score goals.

Robbie Fowler and Steve McManaman are Liverpool's deadliest-ever combination, despite their goal gluts in recent years, with 24.

Henry and Freddie Ljungberg's time together at Arsenal saw them notch 24 goals together.

Nolberto Solano & Alan Shearer, Kevin De Bruyne & Aguero, Ryan Giggs & Eric Cantona and Wayne Rooney & Cristiano Ronaldo all notched 20 or more goals together.

Here is the ultimate list of the top 20 goal-assist combinations in Premier League history…
