Tottenham Hotspur cruised to a 5-0 win against Burnley in North London this afternoon.

Jose Mourinho’s side bounced back in the best possible way following the disappointing 2-1 defeat against Manchester United on Wednesday night.

After starting the match slowly at Old Trafford, Spurs wasted no time against the Clarets when they went ahead after just four minutes with a powerful Harry Kane strike from outside of the penalty area which left Nick Pope helpless.

Spurs added two more goals before half time through Lucas Moura and a stunning solo goal of the season contender from Heung-min Son.

The second half was also one-way traffic with Harry Kane grabbing his second of the game and Moussa Sissoko scoring his second goal in the space of a week to round off the 5-0 drubbing.

With such a comfortable scoreline and having one eye on Wednesday’s Champions League visit to Bayern Munich, Jose Mourinho was able to hand a Premier League debut to Troy Parrott.

The 17-year-old Republic of Ireland international replaced Dele Alli in the 85th minute to get his first taste of top flight action.

After the match, head coach Jose Mourinho showed his class towards the teenager when he asked Heung-min Son for the ball and gave it to Parrott before whispering something in his ear.

Journalist Alasdair Gold was in attendance at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and suggested that Mourinho has given Parrott the ball to commemorate his first appearance in the Premier League.
