Tottenham were sensational, weren't they?
Jose Mourinho's men produced a five star display on Saturday as they overcame Burnley 5-0. The performance had it all, including a goal of the season contender.
But, before all of that, let's rewind to the start.
It didn't take long before the game exploded into life, with Harry Kane firing in a sensational dipping strike from 25 yards out.
Give the England captain time, and he will punish you. But, what a hit...
Harry 'Hurricane' Kane. What a goal #TOTBUR— Boxing is dead without Canelo (@RetainsTheCrown) December 7, 2019
Terrific hit from Harry Kane to give Tottenham Hotspur the lead over Burnley in the early stages of the match#TOTBUR— Sports Encyclopedia (@Daniel_Ozeghe) December 7, 2019
The north London side were really in the mood.
It took Mourinho's men just four minutes to double their lead as Lucas Moura prodded home. Son Heung-min, in typical fashion, raced past his man with ease before firing in a shot which was saved. The Burnley defence frantically tried to clear, but Lucas was on hand to poke home.
What a start...
Under 10 minutes 2 goals. This is a shake off from the defect from Manchester United.#TOTBUR— ❤️IDABIE ❤️🇪🇺 (@IDABIEOTA) December 7, 2019
It was constant pressure, wave after wave.
On 12 minutes, Moussa Sissoko was sent through on goal by Son, but he fired his shot against the woodwork. And just a matter of moments after that, Deli Alli should have made it three, but was denied by a late challenge.

That’s the big team mentality that came with Mourinho 👌👌#TOTBUR
This Mourinho style is starting to work now... We wait for them, then we hit them with a counter #TOTBUR— Ngwana Mmuwi (@robzinterris) December 7, 2019
The away side began to come back into the game and saw a header from Robbie Brady come crashing back out off the bar.
But, just when they thought they were settling...
Son picked up the ball midway inside his own half before looking up to find no one ahead of him. So, off he goes, with the ball stuck to his feet, he glides through one, two, three, four, challenges before cooly slotting home.
Oh. Wow. Goal of the season contender...
What a run, Son. What a finish, Son. What a goal, Son. #TOTBUR— Ieuan Ivett (@ieuanivett) December 7, 2019

Spurs made an equally bright start to the second half, while the Clarets made an equally woeful start to the second half.
Harry Kane finding space again to fire into the roof of the net...
What a player Kane is. Not as involved in build-up as he was under Pochettino, but absolutely deadly in front of goal. He's probably up there alongside Lewandowski when it comes to finishing #TOTBUR— An Unearthly Child ☭ (@crvendac) December 7, 2019
At this point, Burnley and Sean Dyche just wanted the game to be over.
Unfortunately, they had to make it through the rest of the half and Spurs were in no mood to drop the tempo.
And with 73 minutes on the clock, Moussa Sissoko made it 5-0. That's right, Sissoko got in on the act!
Mourinho’s actually an alchemist. 2 goals for Sissoko this season. What the hell?!? #TOTBUR— ap (@otheranthony) December 7, 2019
Thankfully for Burnley fans, the home side were unable to add to their advantage.
It was a magnificent display by Mourinho's men and the perfect response following their defeat away at Manchester United in midweek...
I know Burnley were a bit crap but that was really enjoyable. I've missed us plundering rubbish teams like that at home. Took the foot off the gas for about 10 minutes at the end of both halves but really ruthless football. #TOTBUR #COYS #THFC— Stephen Vincent (@StevieV14) December 7, 2019
This is the Tottenham I know and the Tottenham I love. A perfect comeback after the defeat at Old Trafford. Please keep this team spirit high and keep winning games. Come on you Spurs 💙💙💙 #COYS #THFC #TOTBUR— ♛Nabila(나비라) (@HOTkhunniegirl2) December 7, 2019
16 goals in 5 matches! What a boring parknthe bus manager! 😎😎😎 #TOTBUR— Dwai (@BujMit) December 7, 2019
The north London side return to Champions League action in midweek as they take on Bayern Munich. As for Burnley, Dyche will be looking for a response next time out against Newcastle.
