World News – AU – Son Heung-min’s header gives Tottenham points at Burnley


Tottenham’s prolific away form eluded them in an also hotly contested encounter against Burnley, although the always reliable Son Heung-min came to their rescue with an opportunistic winner at 15 minutes of late Son is now the Premier League’s top scorer with eight while Spurs shoot half a dozen places as a result

It was tough for Burnley, as although they haven’t scored a goal at Turf Moor this season, they were enjoying the best of luck before Son hit from a save Harry Kane, whose header allowed Son to register yet another decisive pass between the two, had just cleared a James Tarkowski effort off the line in what amounted to the closest match Kane went down to the other end to change all that by meeting Erik Lamela’s corner to prepare for Son’s close range arrival, leaving the home side disappointed after managing to hold a team that won their last two away games 5-2 and 6-1 for well over an hour

« Three very important points », was the verdict of José Mourinho « It was the kind of match with all the ingredients to lose points, a cold and rainy night in an empty stadium with opponents who defend very well I knew from the start that we wouldn’t be allowed to play the way we wanted, but we wanted to win a lot We always do I don’t change my speech We want to win every game, and when you have a combination like Kane and Son, you will always have a chance « 

With Josh Brownhill booked for taking down Tanguy Ndombele with just a few minutes on the clock, Ashley Barnes was fortunate enough not to receive at least the same punishment after catching Toby Alderweireld in the face with his elbow as he jumped for a High Ball The Spurs defender ended up with a boxer cut just below his right eyebrow, and as medics worked to stem the flow of blood and wrap a Terry Butcher-style bandage around his head. ‘Alderweireld, there would have been countless opportunities for VAR to verify the incident The result was just play when the player was fit to continue Mourinho managed to appear preoccupied and impressed at the same time

The Tottenham manager would have been more pissed off if his side had been behind when Barnes put the ball in the net five minutes later, although the score was correctly ruled out for offside The VAR also didn’t need to verify the linesman’s decision, as Barnes and a few of his teammates were ahead of the visitors’ backline.

Tottenham managed to pin Burnley in their own half for much of the start of the game without really succeeding in finding the revealing final ball their quick approach work deserved The home side were let go when Son couldn’t react quickly enough when a clearance attempt from Nick Pope went straight to him and the same player found himself in an equally threatening situation after half an hour Ben Davies pass from the left

It was the game last season when Mourinho publicly criticized Ndombele’s overall contribution to the signing of the record, although now the French midfielder appears to be fully in favor, to the detriment of Dele Alli. ‘hasn’t even made the trip to Lancashire, in great shape but left out of the squad, although with Ndombele full of confidence and running and Gareth Bale in reserve on the bench it’s hard to say Spurs are currently running out of attacking options « It pains me to leave the good players out, but we have another game on Thursday, we don’t have to risk everyone, » Mourinho said

When Ndombele was taken in by Brownhill on the edge of the area, it took a good Hugo Lloris save to stop Ashley Westwood from moving Lloris was in action again just before the break, this time preventing an effort from Johann Gudmundsson The Icelandic midfielder was never likely to score, but at least Burnley was working the opposing goalkeeper By the time the interval arrived, with Kane often deep or wide, Pope still had to deal with a shot on target despite Spurs enjoying two-thirds of possession

When Mourinho sent in a replacement for the last half hour it wasn’t Bale but Lamela Burnley continued to threaten at that point, albeit from afar, although it took a warning block Alderweireld to prevent Barnes shot from the edge of the area from hitting its target Tarkowski also managed to meet the Westwood corner, but not in a way that he could properly lead a header from inside the six-yard line. Davies had to block from Westwood as Burnley passed the ball cleanly into the Tottenham area, before Tarkowski reached the Westwood corner, but found Kane standing on the line Burnley probably thought they had done enough to deserve at least one draw, but goals change games and Son brought Spurs to the dizzying height of the fifth, while Burnley’s inability to score is also concerning than having only one point after five games

« I was disappointed to let in a soft goal after defending so well, » said Sean Dyche « But there are signs that we are starting to play well again, we kept a very good team silent for most of the game »
