MetiNews.Com - How the national press reported on Tottenham Hotspur's hard-fought 1-0 win over Burnley on Monday evening as Jose Mourinho's side ground out three points at Turf Moor
Breaking News ! Paul Wilson - The Guardian Tottenham’s prolific away form eluded them in an evenly contested encounter against bottom three Burnley, though the ever-reliable Son Heung-min came to their rescue with a an opportunist winner 15 minutes from the end. Son is now the Premier League’s top scorer with eight while Spurs shoot half a dozen places up the table as a result. That was tough for Burnley to take, because despite not registering a goal at Turf Moor this season they were enjoying the better of the chances before Son struck from a set piece. Harry Kane, whose header set up Son’s scoring chance to record yet another assist between the pair, had just cleared a James Tarkowski effort off the line in what amounted to the nearest the game had come to an opening goal. Kane went down the other end to change all that by meeting Erik Lamela’s corner to set up Son’s close range finish, leaving the home side disappointed after managing to hold a side who won their last two away games 5-2 and 6-1 for well over an hour.

Spurs’ deadly duo are providing the only predictability at a time when usual rules do not apply, setting one another up here for a ninth time in the current campaign. They have combined for 29 Premier League goals in total, a tally only bettered by Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard at Chelsea. In this game Kane was the provider, teeing up his partner for a diving-headed winner when it looked like Jose Mourinho would drop more points against a team wearing claret. This was a response to last weekend’s collapse when they threw away a three-goal lead against West Ham United. Mourinho famously told his players he wanted them to be nastier when he was filmed in the dressing room by Amazon, and here his side battled their way to a victory. Perhaps the type of hard-fought win that title challenges are built on.

The game was meandering towards an unfulfilling conclusion for Tottenham Hotspur. But success in this sport comes in all shapes and sizes, and so it was that Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min combined for the ninth time this season, with 15 minutes to run. An angular header from the edge of Burnley area, steered towards the space into which Son Heung-Min had quietly stolen to head it in, and suddenly Jose Mourinho had a smile on his face.

Tottenham’s Welsh superstar could only look on from the bench in awe as their dynamic duo sealed yet another victory. The North Londoners had been under the cosh before Kane flicked on a corner for his South Korean partner in crime Son to head home the winner with just 14 minutes remaining. It is the 29th time the pair have combined to find the net. Only former Chelsea duo Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba have worked together to score more in Premier League history. Both of those of course worked under current Spurs boss Jose Mourinho.

Richard Jolly - The Independent As the final whistle blew, Eric Dier punched the air and went to hug a bandaged Toby Alderweireld, the strapping around his head both highlighting and camouflaging the evidence of his battle with Ashley Barnes. Tottenham Hotspur had left blood on the Turf Moor pitch but they had kept a clean sheet. The circumstances made it worth celebrating even more. Jose Mourinho’s sides do not normally have to wait until the last week of October for their first league shutout of the season, and not merely because most campaigns start a month earlier than this. After the anarchy of West Ham came rather more control in East Lancashire. The crucial contribution at the back came not from the centre-halves but Harry Kane, clearing James Tarkowski’s header off the line; not content with mutating from Spurs’ finest finisher to their best creator, he contrived to prove their most influential defender as well. Dier and Alderweireld could enjoy their night’s work, but it was about a different couple. It always is. Kane and Son may sound like a removal firm, but they are the prime reason why Spurs may be going places. Read here
