Burnley vs Tottenham HotspurTurf Moor9:00pm
Strange things happen, but never was it thought to be
possible, that a team managed by Jose Mourinho would go on to lose a three goal
lead having led by said margin up until the 80th minute
When Jose Mourinho took of Heung Min Son and sent on Lucas Moura for the final ten minutes, he thought he was just trying to give his man a run in, that was not long after handing a second debut to Gareth Bale in place of Bergwijn.
It ended in tears as he watched helplessly with his mouth wide open as his lads couldn’t stop Manuel Lanzini’s injury time leveler.
Burnley have scored three times this season, the second fewest behind Sheffield and they seem to be sinking into deeper troubles after being unable to get past West Brom last weekend despite being the better side for much of the time.
They are yet to record a win and the game at the Hawthorns was their first point of the campaign, albeit with a game in hand.
In the 3-3 draw with London neighbors West Ham, Spurs were dominant at the start, plugging into space and Harry Kane was firing hard even from the middle.
His airborne pass to Son Heung-min for the opener was everything like what made Kevin De Bryune revered in the world of football.
And his well taken two goals add to his menacing form but he could have gotten more, denied by the post late on and by Fabianski before the Hammers fight back.
Gareth Bale will no doubt get to start and that means Burnley will be the first side to have the trio of Kane, Son and Bale charging down at them,
The embarrassment of last weekend was well put behind in the Europa win on Thursday but fans would definitely want more, Mourinho will want more, someone has to pay, results must start getting better, the men are available for the job, what is the excuse?
Burnley will have to sit deep, stay compact and disciplined, there’s only one way this is going on paper, but belief and concentration can make things happen for the Clarets.
Football has taught us never to write anyone off, it would be a game of what each of the two sides want.
A draw would suffice for Burnley, but anything short of a win will leave Jose Mourinho being starred at by the media, the fans and his employers.
