The landmark goal came just before half-time against the Hornets and he added a second mid-way through the second period.

The double means that he has scored inthree consecutive games, following strikes against Swansea and Burnley.



Son has now hit the back of the net 15times in total in the Premier League since joining Spurs and Saturday's goalbrings his total in all competitions this season to 18goals in 39 appearances.

In cruising pastthe 10-goal milestone in a single season, Son has done what the likes of former Manchester United midfielder Park Ji-Sung could not.



Park hit 19 goals in seven seasons at Old Trafford, managing a season-best total of five on two occasions.

Swansea midfielder Ki Sung-Yeung fell short of hitting the milestone when he managed eight Premier League goals in the 2014-15 campaign.
