Son strikes again as Spurs beat Burnley to move fifth

Premier League Burnley V Tottenham Hotspur
Son Heung-min scored the only goal of the game for Spurs at Burnley

Son Heung-min’s prolific start to the season continued with his 76th minute header giving Tottenham Hotspur a 1-0 win at Burnley in the Premier League on Monday and moving Jose Mourinho’s side up to fifth.

The South Korean was left unmarked at the back post to nod home his eighth league goal of the season after Harry Kane had flicked on an Erik Lamela corner to give Mourinho’s side a third win in six games.

Kane had saved Spurs minutes earlier with a fine piece of defending as he cleared a goal-bound James Tarkowski header off the line.

Although Spurs always looked more comfortable on the ball it was Sean Dyche’s side, who have just a point from their opening five games, who had come the closest.

Ashley Barnes had a 20th minute drive ruled out for offside and then Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris got down well to stop a low drive from Ashley Westwood.

BRIGHTON 1-1 WEST BROM

In Monday’s earlier kick-off, West Bromwich Albion salvaged a 1-1 draw at Brighton & Hove Albion after striker Karlan Grant scored his first goal for the Baggies to cancel out a first-half Jake Livermore own goal.

The result left both sides close to the relegation zone, with Brighton 16th on five points from six games and West Brom 17th on three points as their winless start continued.
