“They are top players but close friends,”Tottenham supervisor Jose Mourinho mentioned. “No jealousy.”Only Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba have linked up for extra extra objectives — 36 — within the Premier League throughout their time at Chelsea.
Moments earlier than establishing the one purpose at Turf Moor, Kane cleared off the road to deny Burnley defender James Tarkowski.
While Spurs secured a 3rd league away win thanks to Son’s tenth purpose in 9 video games in all competitions, the house type has allow them to down. Only two factors have been collected in North London after the group threw away profitable positions in stoppage time in two matches.
Tottenham, which didn’t handle a shot on the right track within the first half at Burnley, moved up to fifth within the standings and didn’t even want Gareth Bale being deployed from the bench.
“We’ve dropped points where we shouldn’t have this season so we’ve still got a lot to learn, but nights like this will definitely give us that confidence,” Kane mentioned.”We’re simply on the stage the place we’ve been so shut for thus a few years and I feel the additions this season have given us extra leaders on the pitch and made us extra skilled.”Burnley is caught on one level.
WEST BROM WINLESSWest Bromwich remains to be trying to find its first win however Karlan Grant did rescue a 3rd level of the season by equalizing for a 1-1 draw at Brighton.
Brighton took the lead 5 minutes earlier than halftime when an tried clearance from Branislav Ivanovic rebounded off Jake Livermore and into the again of the web.
But West Brom’s second-half strain paid off when Grant turned a ball from Callum Robinson previous goalkeeper Mat Ryan within the 83rd minute to clinch the purpose.
Grant joined West Brom from Huddersfield within the offseason after netting 19 objectives within the second-tier Championship final season.
“The way he smashed it was brilliant for him,” West Brom supervisor Slaven Bilic mentioned, “and brilliant for us.”Brighton is 2 factors higher off than West Brom with 5 factors.
“We created some chances, we created some opportunities and we need to carry on with that and then we have to learn a bit more about the second half and what we can do a little bit better,”Brighton supervisor Graham Potter mentioned.”But again I feel you will have to credit score West Brom as a result of they performed higher and have been behind within the sport however can have that mentality, so (there’s) quite a bit for us to enhance on.”
