Mourinho hails ‘implausible’ Son and Kane after Burnley win | Game

Jose Mourinho hailed the understanding
between Harry Kane and Son Heung-min after the pair helped Tottenham return to
winning ways in the Premier League with a hard-fought battle at Burnley.

Minutes after Kane cleared off the line to
keep the score goalless, the England captain flicked on Erik Lamela’s corner
towards the back post, where Son reacted quickest to direct his header into the
top corner.

It was the 29th time the South Korea
forward and Kane have combined for a goal in the top-flight and it proved the
difference as Spurs comfortably held on to claim a 1-0 win to draw a line under
the fiasco against West Ham.

Tottenham conceded three times in the final
10 minutes to draw 3-3 last weekend but, while they were far from their best at
Turf Moor, they did enough to claim the three points and their first clean
sheet in the league this season.

Mourinho was quick to highlight the
contribution of his star forwards, as the Tottenham head coach said: “They play
together for quite a long time.

“They were in the team that is different
from this team, but they played together for a long time and that immediately
gives a good understanding between the players.

“The way we are trying to play goes in the
direction of their qualities. They are enjoying, they are very good friends
which is important when you have top players in the team.

“It’s important that the personal relations
is very, very good because in the end there is no egos. What matters is the

“It is amazing they are two fantastic
players but here we were a team and we were a team suffering together after
West Ham. We felt the pain together and here we are enjoying together.”
