Jose Mourinho says Tottenham have a had a “perfect day” following his side’s emphatic 5-0 win over Burnley on Saturday afternoon.
Harry Kane hit a double while Heung-Min Son, Lucas Moura and Moussa Sissoko also got on the score-sheet as Spurs put on a rampant display at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.
The victory saw Mourinho’s men return to winning ways at the first attempt following their 2-1 loss to Manchester United in midweek – and the result will have pleased those who backed a Spurs win with over 4.5 goals in the betting.
And the Portuguese coach was clearly satisfied with what he had seen, telling the BBC after the game: “A perfect day. No injuries, a clean sheet, goals, perfect football, kids coming on for first Premier League football”.
Ryan Sessegnon, Oliver Skipp and Troy Parrott were all introduced from the bench during the second half, giving them valuable minutes of top-flight action.
“Finally the boys get a day off tomorrow that I’be not been able to give them yet”, he added.
Mourinho also said that Burnley manager Sean Dyche was very complimentary of Tottenham’s performance after the final whistle. He said: “Sean Dyche is always honest and told me after the game we were too good for them. I thank him for that. They are difficult to play against but we were too good. It wasn’t them that were bad”.
Spurs are now up to fifth in the league, but are still six points off fourth placed Chelsea, who lost 3-1 at Everton in the Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off.
