World News – United States – Burnley – Tottenham: Spurs survive bleak encounter


Burnley – Tottenham have been a tough job for Jose Mourinho’s men, but in the end the Premier League’s most prolific side found their way through for a goal from the late Son Heung -min, and a 1-0 win, at Turf Moor on Monday

« Harry Kane finds Son, and he scores » is a phrase we’ve heard seven times (in PL action) this season, as he was the home hero who was credited with the winner’s assist

1 Never stop Mourinho-ing: If you watched Tottenham’s first five games this season and saw that they had scored 15 goals – PL tops – and you were like, “Wow, this Jose Mourinho, he really worked on himself and came back a better manager for that, ”so shame on you Of course Burnley’s style isn’t exactly conducive to open and entertaining play, but it takes two for tango, and Mourinho is forever a willing participant in a defensive battle that doesn’t really happen

2 On the bright side, a clean sheet for Spurs: In other very little Mourinho news, Tottenham had yet to keep a clean sheet in the PL this season Not only did they record their first in n ‘any competition (Europa League) Thursday, but they did it again on Monday to do 180 minutes without conceding Toby Aldeweireld suffered a nasty cut to his right eyebrow early in the game against Burnley, but he stayed in the game and, along with Eric Dier, appears to have locked a starting spot for the foreseeable future In the context of Spurs’ season, « who will leave the central defender » may be the only real uncertainty

3 Burnley offers very little, again (re-post of re-post of re-post of re-post): Sean Dyche had some rather critical thoughts about Burnley’s continued incapacity – or, perhaps, his refusal – to move to a more in a timely manner to recruit new players and improve the squad before the transfer window closes Until such a change occurs, the lyrics de Dyche probably deserve to be reviewed regularly

The first half had only seven shots in total, and only two on target The best chance, and perhaps the only one, of real consequences in the first half didn’t even count as a chance

Burnley thought he passed Ashley Barnes in the 21st minute, but Barnes was a yard or two offside when Dwight McNeil played the ball over The arrival of Barnes’ left foot was too powerful for Hugo Lloris despite the helping hand

Burnley were again the most likely team to score 25 minutes into the second half, if not for Kane’s desperate intervention James Tarkowski rose above everyone else to lead a corner kick in the back of the net, but Kane had read the action and wisely retreated to his goal line and directed the ball just before he started crossing the line

Spurs’ first decent scoring chance came in the 74th minute, although they didn’t quite manage to qualify as an official chance Son came in behind Burnley’s defense and found scarce space to receive the crossing ball from Tanguy Ndombele Tarkowski was with him every step of the way and tackled the ball at the last possible moment

A minute later, after the ensuing corner kick, Son scored his eighth goal of the season – leading PL – thanks to Kane’s eighth assist – also leading, twice as much as anyone else’s Erik Lamela sent the ball into the box, where it was being directed by Kane, and Son arrived just in time to launch himself on the ball and bring it home
