Tottenham Hotspur edge past Burnley to move 5th on the EPL table.

Son Heung-min and Harry Kane linked up yet again for the only goal as Tottenham claimed a fortunate win away to Burnley.

Kane headed Erik Lamela’s pass into the path of Son, who headed home Spurs’ first effort on target. That is the 29th time the pair have combined for a Premier League goal, while Son is now the division’s leading scorer with eight.

“They are top players but close friends,” Tottenham ¬†manager Jose Mourinho said.

Burnley were unfortunate to lose with Ashley Barnes having a goal ruled out for offside and Kane clearing a James Tarkowski header off the line. The win lifts Spurs fifth on the table with 11 points after matches .

Ashley Westwood and Johann Gudmundsson also forced Hugo Lloris into saves.

Sean Dyche’s Clarets remain in the relegation zone on one point, while Spurs move up from 11th to fifth.
