Tottenham 5 Burnley 0: Kane scores twice in thrashing as Spurs bounce back from United loss in style – The Sun

HARRY KANE led a spectacular demolition of Burnley – and it was a rampant performance we rarely see from a Jose Mourinho team.

Striker Kane grabbed two goals, bringing his total to the season to 15, while Lucas Moura scrambled the second, Heung-Min Son scored a belter and Moussa Sissoko made it 5-0.

While Mourinho is known for generally playing safe with his tactics, Tottenham unleashed their full array of weapons to take apart Sean Dyche’s team who delivered a really poor defensive performance.

Spurs started off as though they really meant business and pummelled Burnley.

Kane’s opening goal from 30 yards in the fourth minute was outstanding, although Ben Mee was guilty of backing off.

Heung-Min Son played his part in feeding the ball to Kane and the South Korean international had a hand in the second.


His shot was saved by Nick Pope, Dele Alli headed the ball across the goal and Moura stuck out a leg to score from about a yard.

Sissoko hit the bar, Dele Alli should have scored when clean through and with the game not even a quarter old, Robbie Brady’s looping header hit the bar for Burnley.

But just past the half hour mark, Son scored a brilliant goal from his own half as he saw off about half the Burnley team before calmly putting the ball past a beleaguered keeper Pope.

After needing treatment for a knock at the start of the second half, Kane caused more havoc and hammered the ball into the top left-hand corner from just inside the area for 4-0.

Former Spurs winger Aaron Lennon was given a terrific reception when replacing Brady with 19 minutes to go.

But Sissoko, who only scored his second Premier League goal for Spurs a week ago, added to Burnley’s misery by starting and finishing a move with Kane the provider.

Before the game, Mourinho had told his team to be more angry but here, it was all smiles at White Hart Lane.
