Fantastic To See Turnaround In Him - Tottenham Legend Lauds Spurs Star

Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane and Son Heung-min have formed the Premier League's most potent partnership under Jose Mourinho this season but the Portuguese manager says some of the credit has to go to his predecessor Mauricio Pochettino.

The 28-year-old made the comments following Spurs' 1-0 win against Burnley away from home at Turf Moor in the Premier League on Monday evening.

Speaking after the match, Mourinho said it was "a very important three points", adding: "This was the kind of match with all the ingredients to drop points, a cold rainy night in an empty stadium with opponents who defend very well".

"I don't change my speech".

Instead, Tottenham won and Kane spoke afterwards in an interview with Sky Sports of doing "something special" this season.

Son almost capitalised on an error by Burnley keeper Nick Pope, whose scuffed clearance midway through the first-half laid the ball at the in form strikers feet, but he could not get himself steadied to make something of it.

"I think he's got more end product now in terms of building up of the passing game for Spurs".

Johann Berg Gudmundsson then cut in from the right and forced Lloris into action once more as Burnley ended the half on top.

Intensity, hard work, rugged, solid - words used by Joe Hart and Paul Robinson, both former Burnley players, to describe Sean Dyche's team ethos, an ethos that sees the Clarets in their fifth straight season in the Premier League after promotion in 2015/16.

Kane came to the rescue from another Tarkowski effort, heading off the line.

Son scored the victor for Spurs on 76 minutes when he headed home after Kane had headed Erik Lamela's pass onto him.
