Tottenham continue to reap the benefits of Harry Kane and also Son-Heung-min’s seemingly telepathic collaboration as both combined for Spurs’ late winner in a 1-0 victory at Burnley.
Jose Mourinho’s men appeared to be heading for a 2nd successive Premier League draw after what was a largely toothless screen at Turf Moor on Monday, yet Son nodded in from close range with 14 mins to pursue fine job from Kane.
Spurs saw even more of the round in the very first duration but Burnley went closer to damaging the deadlock, testing Hugo Lloris on a couple of occasions and also having a goal chalked off.
James Tarkowski went closest of all for the Clarets, however his initiative was removed from right in front of the goal-line by Kane, who after that brilliantly established Son’s winner with a clever header of his own for their 9th goal combination of the year already.
Although Spurs revealed promise early, they were not able to develop control and that encouraged Burnley, that saw an Ashley Barnes strike refused for offside in the 21st min.
While that did not result in a continual duration of pressure for Burnley, they did finish the very first fifty percent in the ascendancy, with Lloris preventing Ashley Westwood and Johann Gudmundsson.
Burnley went close again early in the 2nd half– Josh Brownhill confiscating on a wayward Ben Davies pass and also driving just wide of the bottom-left edge.
Kane, that had endured an irritating match in attack, proved definitive at the various other end with 18 minutes to go, getting rid of Tarkowski’s header off the line to maintain Spurs on degree terms.
Just 4 minutes later he was key in the Burnley area, running away from goal to head a corner delivery into Son’s road and the South Korean tossed himself forward to nod in the winner.
