Harry Kane posts three-word verdict after Tottenham win against Burnley
By Amir Mir
Harry Kane has hailed the “big away win” for Tottenham as they recorded a tough 2-0 victory against Burnley on Saturday afternoon at Turf Moor.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side went into the game, ten points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea, but saw that lead reduced to seven points with the win on the road.
Leaders Chelsea suffered a shock defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace, while Spurs ensured their London rivals were punished.
England international Eric Dier and second-half substitute Son Heung-Min were the goalscorers on the day, with both strikes coming in the second half.
After the match, the injured Kane sent this message to supporters and his teammates after their impressive win.

Striker Vincent Janssen was selected to start up front, but the Dutchman was unable to inspire his fans as he was taken off in the second half.
Prior to the international break, Son had started in place of the injured Kane, but Pochettino opted to drop the versatile attacker to the bench.
After a lackluster first half display, the Argentine coach changed things around as Son’s presence on the field helped them to all three points.
Pochettino’s side will now focus their attention to Wednesday night when they take on relegation-threatedn Swansea away from home.
They will then welcome Watford to White Hart Lane on April 8, knowing positive results could see them make a late charge for the title.
