Tottenham fans have longed for this day.

Manager Jose Mourinho named his starting XI to face Burnley and the Portuguese went with an attacking line-up with the holy trinity of Gareth Bale, Harry Kane and Heung-min Son up front.

And it was a decision that immediately paid dividends, with Bale scoring within the first two minutes.

The Welshman latched on to a cross from the South Korean to tap the ball past Nick Pope in the Clarets goal.

Then, just a few minutes later, Bale turned provider by spraying a pass into the path of Kane who made it 2-0 within quarter of an hour.

Lucas Moura then made it three after 30 minutes as Spurs dominated their opposition.

Having Kane, Bale and Son in the same XI is something supporters raved over.

"Kane, Son & Bale linking up and overlapping I’ve waited MONTHS for THIS!" said one.

"In all fairness. Bale, Kane, Son are terrifying as a front 3. Would be hard to choose between those and Salah, Firmino, Mane for me," said another.

"Bale, Son, Kane oh my!!!! #COYS" added a third.

"Bale, Son, Kane and Lucas Moura all starting is frightening. Should have been this attacking all season," wrote another.

"Son, Kane, Bale are the best front 3 in football right now," said another. "Whisper it quietly but son, kane, bale is the best front three in the league," added another, agreeing.

"Gareth Bale, Son and Kane are absolutely incredible," wrote another.

Bale's recent form has played him into contention after a frustrating first half of the campaign which saw him in and out of matchday squads under Mourinho.

Another player who was also generating a bit of chatter was Joe Rodon, who was once again absent from the Spurs team and bench against Burnley.

The Welshman hasn't featured since the 1-0 defeat to Brighton last month.

Mourinho has preferred Eric Dier, Davinson Sanchez and Toby Alderweireld as his centre-backs in recent weeks, with the latter two selected against Sean Dyche's side.

Rodon has made nine appearances for the north London side since his £11million switch from Swansea City at the start of the season.
