Richarlison found the net against his former club via a nicely worked goal by Spurs that saw the Brazilian steal in at the near post to give his team an early 10th minute lead from Brennan Johnson’s assist.


Just at the exact time that Burnley made the brighter start, startling the analysis of pre-match pundits, away at Fulham, with one or two early Clarets’ opportunities, but scores remained goalless at Craven Cottage.


On 18th minute, Everton are undone by a routine corner, with Jordan Pickford parrying into a melee and Son Heung-min pouncing on the rebound, riffling it into the corner to increase Spurs’ lead.
