Sonny hits 100-goal milestone in the Premier League
Sat 08 April 2023, 21:30|Tottenham Hotspur
Heung-Min Son has become the first Asian player to score 100 goals in the Premier League and only the second player to hit a century for the Club in the competition.
Sonny reached the milestone in spectacular style with a 25-yard curler into the top corner to open the scoring in a crucial 2-1 win against Brighton at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday. Harry Kane grabbed the winner in the second half.
Incredibly, the deadly duo have now scored 306 Premier League goals for us between them, with Harry up to 206 with his finish from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s clever cutback to secure the points.
Sonny, who scored his first Premier League goal against Palace on 20 September, 2015, recently leapfrogged Teddy Sheringham (97) into second place in our all-time Premier League goalscoring list and now becomes the 34th player to make it to a century since the competition kicked off in 1992/93. Alan Shearer leads the way with 260, Wayne Rooney is next on 208 and Harry is now just two goals behind Rooney.
