Son's hat-trick sees Spurs hammer Burnley to maintain unbeaten PL start

Heung-Min Son scored a hat-trick as Tottenham came from a goal down to hammer newly-promoted Burnley 5-2 at Turf Moor to maintain their unbeaten Premier League start under Ange Postecoglou.

Spurs fell behind in the fourth minute to Lyle Foster’s close-range goal but the visitors recovered superbly with Son’s clever dinked finish in the 16th minute sparking a ruthless comeback.

Spurs went ahead in first-half stoppage time as Cristian Romero’s screamer from the edge of the box completed the turnaround.

Postecoglou’s side then hit three goals in the space of 12 second-half minutes that began with James Maddison’s wonderful curled finish from outside the box in the 54th minute.

Son then scored his second in the 63rd minute before completing his hat-trick just three minutes later with a cool low finish when through one-on-one.

Burnley substitute Josh Brownhill did score a stoppage-time consolation but it did not dampen Spurs’ fine start under Postecoglou, with the north London club moving up to second in the table with 10 points from four games.

Meanwhile, Burnley remain point-less and are bottom of the league having lost all three opening games.
