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...

​​



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...



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. 


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...





Spurs made an equally bright start to the second half, while the Clarets made an equally woeful start to the second half. 


The outcome? 


A fourth.


Harry Kane finding space again to fire into the roof of the net...



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! 



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...



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.
