hailed "on fire" Son Heung-min after the South Korean destroyed Southampton with a four-goal blitz as Tottenham powered to a 5-2 victory at St Mary's on Sunday.

No one would question the quality of that pair and they underlined the point with superb performances that ripped Southampton to pieces.

"Son was on fire and for me Harry Kane was the man of the match, what he did for the team," Mourinho said.

Dele Alli was left out of Tottenham's squad and Mourinho raised fresh questions about the midfielder's future when asked if he wanted him to stay.

Tottenham were playing the second of five games in 10 days, an unrelenting schedule that Mourinho had derided as "crazy" and initially they looked fatigued.

Tottenham equalised against the run of play in first half stoppage-time.

Dropping deep to devastating effect, Kane was the provider again in the 64th minute with a superb lofted pass and Son finished in emphatic fashion.

Kane got the goal he deserved with a close-range finish in the 82nd minute before Ings netted again with a 90th minute penalty.
