Tottenham Hotspur 5-0 Burnley: Spurs eviscerate the Clarets in a five star performance

Tottenham Hotspur bounced back from their loss to Manchester United by thumping Burnely 5-0 with Harry Kane bagging a brace in the game.

Kane opened the scoring for Spurs before Moura and Son scored in the first half with Kane and Sissoko bagging second-half goals. 

Kane goal

Jose Mourinho's men started the game like a house on fire and opened the scoring after just two minutes when Harry Kane was allowed to let loose of a thunderbolt from outside the 18-yard area by the retreating Burnley defense. 

Moura goal

Burnley were rocked after conceding so early in the game as it only took Spurs three minutes to double their lead when Lucas Moura capitalized on a goalmouth melee to score from a yard and bag his third goal of the season.

Son goal

Tottenham grabbed their third goal in the 32nd minute with a goal of the season contender from Heung-Min Son after he picked up the ball on the edge of his area then ran the length of the pitch, beating all-comers in the process, and slipped the ball past Nick Pope.

Kane brace

Harry Kane bagged his second goal of the game in the 54th minute when Dele Alli set up the skipper who drove into the box and cut on his right before releasing another thunderbolt into the roof of the net to score eight goals in nine league appearances against Burnley. 

Sissoko goal

Kane had a hand in another goal as he set up Moussa Sissoko from the left flank with the Frenchman having a clear sight on goal as he drove into the box before nonchalantly slotting the ball past Nick Pope for his second goal of the season since scoring against Bournemouth.
