first_imgIT was a dream afternoon for Spurs as they bounced back from Wednesday’s loss at Old Trafford in the most perfect possible way.They looked rampant on the counter-attack, with Son Heung-min, Dele Alli and particularly Harry Kane absolutely terrorising the Burnley back line.5 Son scored a goal of the season contender to put his side 3-0 upCredit: PA:Press AssociationAfter blitzing into a comfortable early lead, the Clarets found it impossible to find a way back into the match, or even to keep the score down.The match will likely to be most remembered for an absolutely sensational solo goal from Son Heung-min, as the South Korean ran the length of the pitch to put Tottenham 3-0 up in the first half.SunSport runs the rule over Spurs’ performers on a great afternoon in N17.PAULO GAZZANIGA – 6Quiet afternoon for the Argentine international. Rarely involved but was fine when needed.SERGE AURIER – 6Plenty of darting runs in behind Burnley’s bewildered and frankly overworked backline. Troubled defensively by Dwight McNeil, who was able to deliver a number of dangerous crosses. A performance littered with silly fouls. Went off injured late on.5 Aurier provided some dangerous runs going forwardCredit: Getty – ContributorDAVINSON SANCHEZ – 7Crucial goal-line block after Brady had hit the bar. Not always brilliant with his distribution, but ultimately solid.TOBY ALDERWEIRELD – 7Imperious and composed, the Belgian combined excellent distribution with stunning cross field passes. Seems to be playing with more vigour and verve.5 Alderweireld was imperious at the back for SpursCredit: ReutersJAN VERTONGHEN – 7Good distribution and solid in the challenge. Given a much easier afternoon by Brady than he was by Daniel James.ERIC DIER – 7Quietly effective in shutting down Burnley attacks. It’s hard to imagine that Son would have managed to get through like he did for his wonder-goal had Dier been in the Burnley ranks. Booked for a foul on Jeff Hendrick.5 Dier was quietly effective in shutting down Burnley attackersCredit: PA:Press AssociationMOUSSA SISSOKO – 8Cruelly denied by the post after a charge into the box. Wasn’t to be denied in the second half though. Another lung-busting run into the penalty area rewarded as Kane picked him out from the left. Showed great composure top slot calmly past Pope.LUCAS MOURA – 7Gratefully poked home a sitter in the first ten minutes. Pressed doggedly when out of possession. Quieter than the other attackers but a useful display. Replaced by Sessegnon.DELE ALLI – 7Determined header put Lucas’ goal on a plate for him. Plenty of nice touches and his presence clearly frightened those in claret and blue.SON HEUNG-MIN – 9Terrorised Lowton. Brilliant dribble and shot in the build up to the second goal. Scored an all-time classic goal to put Spurs 3-0 up in the first half with an incredible solo run through the heart of the Burnley team.5 Son scored one of the all-time great goals to put Spurs 3-0 upCredit: Getty Images – GettyHARRY KANE – 9Sensational strike from range to smack Spurs into an early lead. Caused Burnley absolute havoc when dropping deep and when hugging the last defender. Shook off an ankle scare to immediately score a brilliant fourth goal for Spurs, rifling the ball into the roof of the net from ten yards. Lovely subtle little through ball to set up Sissoko. STAR MANSUBSTITUTES -Ryan Sessegnon (for Lucas Moura, 75th minute) – Didn’t have time to make a major impact, a few tidy passes. 6LATEST TOTTENHAM NEWSHARRY ALL FOUR ITKane admits Spurs must win EIGHT games to rise into Champions League spotGossipALL GONE PETE TONGVertonghen wanted by host of Italian clubs as long Spurs spell nears endBELOW PARRSpurs suffer blow with Parrott to miss Prem restart after appendix operationPicturedSHIRT STORMNew Spurs 2020/21 home top leaked but angry fans slam silver design as ‘awful”STEP BY STEP’Jose fears for players’ welfare during restart as stars begin ‘pre-season’KAN’T HAVE THATVictor Osimhen keen on Spurs move but only if they sell Kane this summerYOU KAN DO ITKlinsmann quit Spurs to win trophies but says Kane’s better off stayingTURBULENT PAIRINGDrogba and Mido had mid-flight brawl after stewardess prank went wrongGossipSPURRED ONTottenham table contract offer for Bayern Munich’s teenage starlet Taylor BoothExclusivePASS THE TESTEngland’s NRL-based stars urge bosses to make room for a Test this yearOliver Skipp (for Serge Aurier, 80th minute) – Tidy cameo from the teenage midfielder. 6Troy Parrott (for Dele Alli, 85th minute) – Exciting day for the 17-year-old, to make his league debut.
