Harry Kane backs Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham to ‘do something special’

Tottenham see off Burnley

Week six of the 2020/21 Premier League season drew to a close on Monday evening.

The final clash of the gameweek saw Tottenham face a tough trip to Turf Moor.

Spurs headed into proceedings on the back of a decent run of form, having gone unbeaten in their previous four league ties.

As for Burnley, they were still searching for a first league win of the campaign.

And, when all was said and done last night, the result reflected the respective form of the two sides.

The Clarets did a decent job of keeping a rather conservative Spurs quiet for large parts of the clash.

But, as has so often been the case over the early weeks of the season, Harry Kane and Heung-min Son combined to fire the Lilywhites into a late lead.

Erik Lamela’s 76th minute corner saw Harry Kane glance the ball into Son’s path, with the South Korean having headed past Nick Pope to secure all three points for Spurs:

Their latest victory moved Tottenham up to 5th in the Premier League table, just two points adrift of table-topping Everton.

The north Londoners are also doing well in cup competitions so far this season – having made it to the last-eight of the League Cup and won their first Europa League group stage outing of the campaign last week.

As a result, the mood at Spurs appears pretty positive at present, and with Jose Mourinho at the helm, the Lilywhites no doubt fancy their chances of ending the club’s trophy drought sooner rather than later.

And one of Tottenham’s stars who is seemingly very optimistic as things stand is Harry Kane.

Post-Burnley, the English international voiced the opinion that this current Spurs side can do ‘something special’:

“I think we are at a stage where we have been so close for so many years, a lot of us have been together for four or five years. The additions this year have been great and we are all getting more experienced.

“We know with the team we have got and the players we have got, we can do something special.

“It’s making sure when you come to places like this you are fighting for every point and result. To bounce back and grind these results out, these are the results that count at the end of the season.”
