This Monday evening, Burnley hosted Tottenham at the end of the sixth day of the Premier League. Eighteenth with only a small point on the clock, the premises absolutely had to win against Spurs ranked eleventh with 8 units. José Mourinho bet on a 4-2-3-1 with the infernal Harry Kane in front. From the start, the Londoners were offensive with Lucas and Kane. But the Clarets opened the scoring before Barnes’ goal was canceled for offside (21st).
Burnley continued to insist and obtained two chances with Westwood, stopped by Lloris (38th), and Gudmundsson (45th). The only true ones in the first period when Tottenham struggled to be inspired offensively (0-0). In the second half, they tried to show a better face. But Son like Kane and their teammates couldn’t do it. While Burnley was more dangerous, Londoners finally found the loophole. Kane, receiving a corner, deflected with a header for Son who scored with a header (1-0, 76 ‘). A precious goal since Tottenham won and took 5th place.
