With their 3-0 victory over Leeds, Harry Kane and Son Heung-min set the Premier League record for most goal combinations in a season, sending Tottenham into third position. Kane, who opened the scoring from the penalty spot, set the club’s 100th goal for the South Korean as the pair combined this season for the 13th time, equaling the record set at Blackburn in 1994-95 by Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton.
The pair were the season story for Spurs and are just four minutes away from breaking the record set at Chelsea by Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard (36). One victory, one objective, and one baby. And what a week.

At the Hawthorns Stadium, Alexandre Lacazette scored a brace in Arsenal FC’s 4-0 victory over West Brom. With a fine solo effort, Kieran Tierny gave the visitors the lead halfway through the first half before Bukayo Saka extended the advantage after combining with Emile Smith Rowe just five minutes later. In Arsenal’s 4-0 victory, Alexandre Lacazette scored two second-half goals (Michael Regan/PA) In the second half, Lacazette scored two goals in four minutes to secure a third straight win for Mikel Arteta’s side and step up to 11th. The Baggies, who earlier in the week won 5-0 against Leeds, remain 19th in the standings, six points off the top. Thanks to a miracle goal from Ebere Eze, Crystal Palace returned to winning ways and inflicted more misery on Sheffield United with a 2-0 victory at Selhurst Park. The side of Roy Hodgson had not been good since beating West Brom at the beginning of December, but the opening goal of Jeffrey Schlupp and the superb effort of Eze – coupled with a professional performance – helped them win in their first game of the year.

This season’s 15th Premier League loss raises relegation fears. In a 3-3 draw with Wolves at the Amex Stadium, Brighton came back from a two-goal deficit to win a point.

After the restart, Nuno Espirito Santo’s visitors slumped and were fortunate not to leave the South Coast empty-handed as the Seagulls have only reached the crossbar in the second half through Adam Webster. Brighton, who are still without a home victory in this season’s top flight, is now three points clear of last position in the table, despite having played two more than 18th-placed Brighton matches.
