Burnley 0-1 Tottenham LIVE RESULT: Son Heung-min gives Spurs win in drab affair at Turf Moor – The Sun

IT was a familiar feeling for Tottenham as Harry Kane assisted Son Heung-min for a 1-0 win at Burnley.

The Clarets were stubborn defensively as ever but a double header with 15 minutes to go ultimately proved their undoing.

    JOSE SPEAKS

    “It was exactly what I expected,” Mourinho said.

    “I know Sean, I know what he brings for attacking teams, he's very clever, he plays with what he has.

    “Michael Oliver was very good. And for a match of this nature, you need a good referee, a referee with good ability.

    “He was always in control, he doesn't need to give a red card for Barnes.

    “All the duels, he has to nee running with the ball, because the ball is always in the air in this kind of match.

    “My players didn't play the football we wanted but because of Burnley, not us. It was a positive game.

    “This was the type of match where if you take risks you can lose it.

    “Kane and Son's understanding comes from Mauricio, not all the credits are with me. In different ways but Harry isn't the No 9 he was. He gets into areas that allows Sonny to get in different areas.”

    KANE SPEAKS

    “It was one of them, it was an unusual assist and Sonny was there to put it away,” he told Sky Sports.

    “He's on fine form at the moment, it was lucky it went to him and he put it away.

    “I think this season when I've been dropping deeper the wide players have been running in behind.

    “In recent years we haven't been doing that, Sonny, Lucas and Gareth know if I get that ball then they'll be through on goal.

    “Tough place to come tonight but we managed to get the win.

    “When the gaffer come in he said the wingers can run in behind when I drop deep.

    “We're just seeing the final product a bit more now. It catches the eye a bit more, we had to adapt tonight and qe did.

    “We're at a stage where a few of us have been together for four or five years now, we know with the team and players we've got we can do something special.

    “These results count at the end of the season.”

    BURNLEY 0-1 TOTTENHAM

    Well, it wasn't pretty from Spurs, but they got the job done and have earned an important three points.

    Burnley made it hard but Heung-min Son got the goal his side needed thanks to a flick on from Harry Kane after a late corner.

    And important win for Spurs, who are now 5th in the Premier League table.

    Burnley still haven't won this season and they're in the relegation places.

    BURNLEY 0-1 TOTTENHAM

    88. Son comes forward again but Burnley players get back before he can fashion a chance for one of his team-mates.

    Burnley will be a tad disappointed they let the game slip from them like that.

    Vydra comes on for Barnes. Last chance saloon for the Clarets.

    TELEPATHIC

    Only Chelsea legends Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard have combined to score more goals in Premier League history.

    BURNLEY 0-1 TOTTENHAM

    85. Gundmunsson goes off for Jay Rodriguez as Burnley look for a late equaliser.

    They win a corner but the cross into the box is caught handily by Hugo Lloris, who falls to the floor before taking all the time in the world to get up.

    BURNLEY 0-1 TOTTENHAM

    83. Tottenham now nicely in control and they're a little more relaxed with the knowledge that they have the lead.

    Lamela tries an acrobatic volley this time but Pope collects.

    If Burnley come forward now they leave themselves exposed. Tough decision.

    LETHAL COMBO

    Here's that Son goal, for your viewing pleasure.

    DEADLY

    Great work again from Kane and a good finish from Son. These two are unstoppable at the moment.

    BURNLEY 0-1 TOTTENHAM

    80. Lo Celso now coming on for Ndombele.

    Son down injured after Long catches him in Burnley's final third. Free-kick to Spurs in a decent position.

    BURNLEY 0-1 TOTTENHAM

    78. Well, the double-act works again for Spurs, as Kane and Son now combined for their 29th goal in the Premier League.

    A corner is played in, Kane flicks it on and Son heads it in.

    And it was a simple as that for Spurs.

    1-0 to the away side.

  • matt.penn@thesun.co.uk

    GOOOOOOOAAAAAAAALLLLLLL!!!!!!!

    KANE TO SON! 1-0 TOTTENHAM!

  • matt.penn@thesun.co.uk

    BURNLEY 0-0 TOTTENHAM

    77. Son takes up the best position of the game for Spurs as he's played through on goal but Kevin Long gets back to block the attacker's shot.

    He took too long there did Son, though he comes forward again with Lamela and Kane, whose effort is once again blocked by a Burnley defender.

  • matt.penn@thesun.co.uk

    BURNLEY 0-0 TOTTENHAM

    75. Lamela puts a teasing ball into the box for Davies but the full-back can't quite get on the end of it.

    That's been the story of the game for Tottenham, really. Disappointing in all aspects.

    Burnley still pushing and probably look the most likely to get a goal at this rate.

  • matt.penn@thesun.co.uk

    BURNLEY 0-0 TOTTENHAM

    73. BIG CHANCE for Burnley as Tarkowski thinks he's about to put his side 1-0 up but Harry Kane of all people is on the line to head away.

    Huge let off for Spurs.

  • matt.penn@thesun.co.uk

    BURNLEY 0-0 TOTTENHAM

    71. Looks like Vinicius could be coming on for Tottenham.

    The Brazilian was brilliant against LASK in the Europa League last week. Maybe he can provide something different for Spurs up top.

  • matt.penn@thesun.co.uk

    BURNLEY 0-0 TOTTENHAM

    68. Chris Wood then gets a decent look-in at goal but his acrobatic effort is snuffed out by Alderweireld.

    Doherty comes forward with Spurs but once again Spurs struggle to get players in the right positions.
