Tottenham Hotspurs player ratings for their 1-0 win against Burnley

Tottenham Hotspurs, Six Sports

Tottenham Hotspurs climbed back into the top four of the Premier League with a nervy 1-0 win against Burnley.

Spurs dominated the game in the opening first half of the game. However, Burnley was robust to deny Spurs a lead.

Heung-Min Son nearly scored but a good save by Nick Pope denied him.

Mid-first half Burnley started to keep the ball more and even forced a save from Hugo Lloris.

However, close to the end of the first half, Spurs were awarded a penalty. A lengthy VAR review gave the decision in favour of the hosts.

Harry Kane then made no mistake to bury the ball in the net from the spot-kick.

Though Spurs had quite a shot on target in the second half but Pope stood strong at the goal to deny the hosts another goal.
