Kane admits Son’s wonder goal ‘stole the show’ as Spurs thump Burnley 5-0

Spurs bounced back from their midweek defeat to Manchester United, by handing out a 5-0 drubbing to Burnley at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.

Jose Mourinho’s men got off to a perfect start when talisman Harry Kane smashed home a superb long-range effort after just four minutes, and Lucas Moura bagged a tap in just a few minutes later to put Spurs in a commanding position.

Son Heung Min then lit up North London with one of the finest solo goals you are ever likely to see, the South Korean attacker running almost the entire length of the pitch before finishing past Clarets keeper Nick Pope.

Kane and Moussa Sissoko would strike in the second period to seal an impressive win for Mourinho’s side, a victory that sees Spurs move up to fifth in the Premier League table.

Speaking after the game Spurs skipper Kane was delighted with his side’s performance, but admitted Son’s wonder strike stole the show.

“Sonny [Son Heung-min] stole the show today. An unbelievable goal, a great counter-attack,” Kane told BBC Sport.

“All he wants to do is work hard and play for the team. He has great quality and works hard for the team.

“All round it was a top performance.

“Whenever you play bad in a big game like the Manchester United [which they lost 2-1] game you cant wait for the next game and for the whistle to start.

“You saw that today, we pressed quickly and took our chance.”
