Harry Kane’s strike was the 250th goal of his professional career for club and country.

Harry Kane believes both he and attacking partner Son Heung-min are entering the prime of their careers after their goals helped Tottenham overcome arch-rivals Arsenal and return to the top of the Premier League table.

The deadly double act were at the heart of another impressive win and both were on the scoresheet as Jose Mourinho’s side took control of the game by the interval.

Son, 28, and Kane, who is a year younger, have now combined for 31 Premier League goals, the second most of any duo behind former Chelsea players Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard (36).

Eleven of those goals have come in this campaign and Kane told Sky Sports: “We’re both at an age now where we’re coming into maybe in our prime in terms of understanding the game and understanding each other.

“When I’m passing him through and he’s cutting inside and whipping them into the top bins it is an easy game for me.”

Mourinho hailed the pair as “world class” and once again highlighted their strong work ethic.

“Kane clearing balls in the box, Sonny for the first 60 minutes as a winger and then a second striker – it is not just about scoring goals and being world-class players,” he said. “It is about being great guys and doing your best for the team.”

Spurs fans were back inside their vast stadium for the first time in 277 days and were celebrating after only 13 minutes when Son took Kane’s pass, advancing on the retreating Arsenal defence before curling a magnificent right-foot finish beyond diving Arsenal keeper Bernd Leno from 25 yards.

Arsenal dominated possession in the first half but it was Spurs who had the ruthless, clinical edge as they caught the Gunners on the break in stoppage time, Son repaying the compliment by playing in Kane for an unstoppable finish off the underside of the crossbar for his 11th north London derby goal and the 250th of his career for clubs and country.

Mikel Arteta’s side, who lost Thomas Partey to injury right on half-time, showed a little more threat after the break but Spurs closed out the win with relative ease to return to the Premier League summit.
