Premier League Tottenham 2-1 victory over Burnley


Erik Lamela scored his first Premier League goal as Tottenham beat Burnley to move up to sixth in the table.

The £30m club-record signing netted the first-half winner when he cut in from the right and curled in a left-footed strike from outside the area.

Spurs had taken an early lead when Harry Kane headed home Nacer Chadli’s left-wing cross.

Ashley Barnes equalised with a stunning 25-yard strike of his own, before Lamela’s impressive intervention.

Here are what the managers had to share:

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino:

“It’s becoming normal now that Harry Kane has scored. We are very happy with him. He worked very hard and scored a goal, which is very important for the striker.”

On the chances of an England senior call-up for Kane: “I wish for my player the best but Harry has big potential and he’s a big talent, why not? If he continues to play in the same way, maybe the opportunity will come for him to play for the national team.”

Burnley manager Sean Dyche:

“I’m not really disappointed. We’re growing into the division and there have been some really good signs. I thought we delivered a really good performance, worked their keeper on numerous occasions and affected their back four.

“I was a little disappointed with the decision for their first goal. I think Harry Kane gets a little nudge and it was ball to hand with the defender. Then they play a quick free-kick and there is an offside. We all know the debate on offside: is he interfering? Is he not? If he was in the line of the goal I think they’d have to say he was interfering. But that’s another debate.”
