England captain Harry Kane made marquee Arsenal summer signings Gabriel Magalhaes and Thomas Partey look like complete amateurs before bagging the assist for Spurs’ first today.
Kane controlled the ball expertly after a header from Steven Bergwijn, Gabriel was right behind him as he did so, with the centre-back questionably deciding to ease off the striker at that point.
Kane then easily touched the ball past Partey before playing the ball out wide to partner Heung-Min Son, who cut in past Rob Holding before curling the ball into the back of the net with a fine strike.

Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min combine once again, and the finish is absolutely stunning from the South Korean.

The duo simply weren’t good enough in this passage of play, they can’t be totally blamed for the goal as that would downplay Son’s magnificence, but big-money players should be doing much better here.
