The 28-year-old scored and assisted to help the Lilywhites secure a home victory and matched the feat by the Togo international in the process
The 28-year-old inspired Jose Mourinho’s men to a comeback 2-1 victory against the Emirates Stadium outfit with his contribution.
The South Korea international cancelled out Alexandre Lacazette opener with a brilliant strike in the 19th minute of the encounter.
The forward then set up Toby Alderweireld to score the all-important winning goal and thus, helped the Lilywhites bounce back to winning ways after they played out a goalless draw against Bournemouth last time out.
Son, thus, became the first Tottenham player to score and assist in a Premier League game against Arsenal since 2012 when Emmanuel Adebayor achieved the feat.

Adebayor went on to spend three years with Tottenham and scored 18 league goals in 59 appearances amid other dazzling displays before leaving for Crystal Palace in 2016.
After leaving England, the 36-year-old forward played for Turkish Super Lig sides Istanbul Basaksehir and Kayserispor.
