Tottenham were at their stellar best in the first half against Burnley as they lead 3-0 at the interval.
Spurs haven’t started their matches on the front foot in recent games and new Spurs boss Jose Mourinho expressed his concern about the team’s lack of intensity during the first 30 minutes of games.
It looks like the Portuguese manager’s words certainly had an effect on the players as Tottenham pressed their opponents high up from the start and got in their faces.
They were rewarded for their quick start as brilliant strike from Harry Kane and tap in from Lucas Moura put them 2-0 up with in the first 10 minutes.
However, the goal of the game and potentially of the season was scored by Son Heung-min who dribbled past half the Burnley team before finishing expertly past Nick Pope.
Some Spurs fans were thrilled with what they saw from the team in the first half
Jose has got us playing like animals…that's what we want especially in big games….

Now bring on
Locelso for dele.

How long will it take for Toby Alderweireld to be recognised as the best long range passer in world football

Son either goes on tremendous form, or horrendous form. There is no in between.

Two absolutely blinding goals & the best 45 minutes of football from us since Palace. Task now is to not give away goals; Burnley could have had two so far. Let’s keep that clean sheet & give our goal difference the much needed boost it needs. #COYS

Spurs Web Opinion
We haven’t managed to keep a clean sheet since Jose Mourinho took over and so it is important that we don’t concede in the second half. If we keep things tight at the back, we will no doubt have more opportunities to extend the lead even further with our fire power upfront.
