Precisely the tonic we needed after the tepid defeat at Old Trafford.
Right from the kick-off, Spurs looked like a team with an overwhelming desire to win. Poor Burnley had no answer to the potent attacking play of Kane, Moura, Dele and Son.
And Son provided the highlight of the match with a world class individual effort, picking the ball just outside his own penalty box and then racing down the length of the field, evading Burnley defenders’ desperate tackles before calmly slotting home.
Kane opened the scoring with an early goal, putting a rocket past the helpless Pope, an indication of the day the Burnley goalkeeper was going to have. This was quickly followed up by a dynamic team move with ended up with Moura prodding home from close range.
In the second half, Spurs took their foot off the pedal somewhat but still managed engineer a brace of goals – from Kane and Sissoko (!) to complete an excellent day out.
Jose Mourinho would have been especially pleased with the clean sheet though to be honest, Aurier did nothing to enhance his reputation as a defender as he allowed Burnley winger McNeill too much time and space to deliver decent crosses throughout the game. Luckily for Spurs, nothing worked for the visiting strikers but certainly a problem to take note.
Still work to be done BUT Spurs still heading in the right direction under Mourinho.
COME ON YOU SPURS!!!
