Tottenham Hotspur's Son Heung-min celebrates scoring their side's first goal of the game during the Premier League match at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, London, April 2023.

A breakdown of the stats behind Son Heung-min’s 100 Prem goals

With his fabulous goal for Tottenham against Brighton, Son Heung-min scored his 100th Premier League goal – and we’ve broken down his top-flight century for your reading pleasure.

Son curled home from the edge of the box after just ten minutes of Spurs’ 2-1 victory over Brighton at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to achieve the milestone.

To notch up a century of goals in the highest division in English football is some achievement, and Son has become only the 34th player to do so since the Premier League was formed in 1992.

The South Korea international took 260 games to join the hundred club, all of which have come in a Tottenham shirt. He is also the first Asian player to score 100 Premier League goals, which is a magnificent achievement.

Son has been a huge hit in the white half of north London since arriving from Bayer Leverkusen in 2015 and has already chalked up a number of individual awards.

He claimed the 2019-20 Puskas award for his sensational solo goal against Burnley and shared the Golden Boot with Mohamed Salah in 2021-22 after scoring 23 times in the English top flight.
