Harry Kane shone in Tottenham's victory over Southampton with a goal and four assists. The striker matched the most number of assists given by a single player in a Premier League game. Bergkamp, Reyes and Cesc Fabregas are other to achieve the feat.

Tottenham beat Southampton 2-5 thanks to brilliant link up play involving Heung-min Son and Harry Kane. The South Korean scored four goals, assisted four times by the Englishman, while Kane got the fifth goal for Jose Mourinho's side.

With his performance, Kane made Premier League history as he joined a select group to have got four assists in one Premier League game. Very few players have been able to do that. Only six had done that before Kane.

The first to do so was Dennis Bergkamp in a 5-0 win for Arsenal versus Leicester in 1999. Seven years later, Jose Antonio Reyes did the same in a 7-0 victory over Middlesbrough. 

A few years later, in 2009, another Arsenal star achieved the feat: Cesc Fabregas gave four assists in a 6-2 victory against Blackburn Rovers. In 2012, Emmanuel Adebayor did it in the 5-0 win over Newcastle.

The following year (2013), Santi Cazorla got four assists when Arsenal beat Wigan 4-1. The last person to do it before Kane was Dusan Tadic in an 8-0 win for Southampton over Sunderland.
