Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Micky Hazard has shared his thoughts on Twitter following the club’s 5-0 victory against Burnley in the Premier League.
A dominant display from Jose Mourinho’s side saw them close the gap on fourth place Chelsea to just six points after their London rivals had lost 3-1 at managerless Everton earlier in the day.
Hazard welcomed the return of Tottenham’s high pressing style which puts the opposition under pressure when in possession of the ball.
The 59-year-old also joked that he taught Heung-min Son how to score his stunning goal against Burnley in whilst training on Friday.
The South Korean scored one of the best goals in a Spurs shirt in living memory when he picked the ball up on the edge of his own box after a Burnley free-kick was cleared and raced 70 yards to finish beyond Clarets keeper Nick Pope.
Spurs were also able to keep a rare clean sheet, their first since Mourinho took over.
What a performance today, high press tempo movement quality. Unstoppable combination. We are much better team when we press teams high up pitch, takes pressure of defence and we win ball early and are at them. So pleased I taught Sonny at training yesterday how to do that goal
