10 brilliant stats from Tottenham’s 5-2 statement thrashing of Burnley

Life under Ange Postecoglu continues to look sweet for Tottenham, who came from behind to demolish Burnley at Turf Moor thanks to an inspired display from Son Heung-min.

Questions were asked of Spurs and how they’d cope after losing Harry Kane to Bayern Munich late in the transfer window, but Postecoglu and his side have had an answer every time thus far in the Premier League. A brilliant win against Manchester United has been followed up with victory away to Bournemouth, and an early Carabao Cup exit was avenged away to Burnley.

Son ran riot and bagged a hat-trick for Tottenham who continue to begrudgingly become every football hipster’s favourite team, if not for himself and James Maddison cooking, then for big Ange being a delight every week.

Lyle Foster’s opener for the Clarets after just four minutes ought to have panicked Spurs, but it took them just 12 minutes to pull back level before racing into their eventual 5-1 lead. Josh Brownhill was able to add a late consolation for Burnley, but Ange-ball had already run wild on the Premier League once again.

It’s becoming a regular occurrence, this. The Australian has completely transformed them from the side we saw last season, and you can’t help but be happy for him.

But after the match, he was keen to put all the praise onto the ‘outstanding’ South Korean: “He’s been an outstanding leader, with the way he presents himself every day in training.

“He led our press today – and then he has the quality to take his chances. I’m really pleased for him.”

Their thrashing of Vincent Kompany’s Clarets was a statement win heading into the international break. Here are ten stats that display just how good a three points it was.

– Son Heung-min scored his fourth Premier League hat-trick, with each coming at different venues (St. Mary’s v Southampton, Sep 2020, Villa Park v Aston Villa, Apr 2022, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium v Leicester, Sep 2022, Turf Moor v Burnley, Sep 2023) – via @OptaJoe.

– Since his first season in the Premier League (2018-19), no player has scored more goals from outside the box in the competition than James Maddison (18, level with James Ward-Prowse) – via @OptaJoe.

– James Maddison is now the midfielder with the joint-most goals and assists in the Premier League (23) since the start of last season, alongside Kevin De Bruyne and Martin Odegaard. Incredibly good company.
