That just about does it for our live coverage of Tottenham vs Burnley, thanks for following along.

Be sure to keep a close eye on IBTimes UK over the coming days for all the latest transfer news and gossip.

Until next time, goodbye.

It's a magnificent point for Burnley, who are showing signs of becoming much more of a force to be reckoned with on the road after last year's struggles.

That will ease the burden on their home form, which kept them from being dragged into a relegation fight in 2016-17.

We'll see what lies ahead for these two sides - still level on points and positioned ninth and 10th respectively - in the remaining days of the window.

After the international break, Tottenham travel to Everton and Dyche's men welcome struggling Crystal Palace to Turf Moor.

So Tottenham fans trudge home from Wembley with a familiar sinking feeling after watching another positive result get snatched away at the death.

Pochettino has been quick to dispel any notion of a jinx, although it is becoming harder and harder to argue that his players are not being affected by playing regularly at the home of English football.

They dominated for the most part today and should have had the three points in the bag long before Wood's dramatic late equaliser. A combination of profligacy and some fine Burnley defending has cost them dearly.

Eric Dier


Tottenham 1-1 Burnley

Tottenham pour forward in search of an equaliser but Burnley hold firm. Dier also gets up to make an important header under pressure from Wood.

Sanchez is on for his Tottenham debut. Dembele makes way.

Late drama for the second week running at Wembley and Pochettino looks furious.

Burnley have been pushing hard for the last few minutes and finally get their reward in the 92nd minute as Wood takes advantage of some poor defending from Alderweireld and Trippier to stroke a superb Brady pass beyond Lloris.

Tom Heaton

Goal: Tottenham 1-1 Burnley (Chris Wood)

Four minutes of added time for Burnley to find an equaliser.

A surging run from Brady is ended by Davies.

Barnes fails to connect properly with an attempted hooked volley after Winks accidentally heads a long throw into his own penalty area.

Wood takes a heavy touch and cannot get Ward's latest cross under control.

Pochettino looks to shore up his midfield by withdrawing Eriksen in favour of young Harry Winks.

Ward's delightful left-wing cross is taken off the head of Barnes by a crucial Vertonghen header.

Wood then heads tamely into the hands of Lloris as Burnley apply some late pressure at Wembley.

Wood has been repeatedly caught offside since coming on, but on this occasion his curving run is timed to perfection.

He looks to collect Cork's pinpoint pass but is stopped in his tracks by a fabulous - if somewhat risky - sliding challenge from Lloris. He had to win the ball there, or else he would have been off.

Chris Wood

Alli twists and turns amid a sea of claret and blue shirts as Burnley get back into position quick as a flash. He is poleaxed by Cork before Kane hits a free-kick into the wall.

Arfield clears. Dyche's third and final change sees Ashley Westwood replace Defour.

How are Tottenham not 2-0 up?!

Sissoko's rather insipid shot is blocked by Mee and Alli fires straight into the arms of Heaton from close range.

Will they live to regret all of these missed chances?

Kane rides a poor attempted sliding challenge from Tarkowski and looks as if he is about to break that August jinx, only for Heaton to stand strong with a fine block.

Kane's header from a corner is hacked off the line by Defour. Eriksen then springs the offside trap and unleashes a vicious effort that is turned over by Heaton.

Kane connects first time with a pull-back from Davies and is denied by a fine low fingertip save from Heaton.

Brady makes a clever switch onto his right foot and forces a strong save from Lloris at his front post.

Burnley are not out of this just yet. They reacted quickly to seize upon a mistake and create that chance through Arfield.

Wood again moves too early and Pochettino introduces Sissoko - no longer Tottenham's record signing - in place of Son.

Wood cannot connect with a cross to the back post and he then shoots wide after being flagged for offside.

Selfish play from Kane, who leaves Mee for dust and shoots straight at Heaton from a difficult angle. That should surely have been squared to a teammate.

The physical Barnes receives a warning from Mason after clattering Vertonghen for the second time already.

Mee finds Ward with a back-post knockdown but the Irish left-back leans back and picks out row z with a wild effort.

You get the feeling that screamer against Chelsea on opening weekend was a real one-off.


Wood and Barnes both jog on after just 10 minutes of this second half. Gudmundsson and Vokes are the men to make way.

This is Wood's Premier League debut for Burnley and Barnes' 100th outing in claret and blue.

Dyche is about to respond to that Alli goal by sending on not one but two forwards. Wood and Ashley Barnes both prepare to enter the fray.

Almost a quick-fire second for Tottenham as Kane receives possession from Eriksen and bends a low shot agonisingly wide of the far post.

So close to his century and a rare August goal.

Finally Spurs find a way through.

Eriksen's corner is flicked on by Dier at the near post and Mee makes a mess of his attempted clearance.

Dembele inadvertently blocks Alli's initial attempt before the England midfielder pokes home the rebound.

Muted celebrations from Alli as relief floods around Wembley.

Dele Alli

Goal: Tottenham 1-0 Burnley (Dele Alli)

Nervy defending from Lowton as he hooks clear a back-post cross from Trippier. Alli probes for an opening but is dispossessed by a firm challenge from Ward.

The second half is underway. No changes from either manager just yet.

A frustrating opening 45 minutes for Tottenham, who have dominated territory and possession but have thus far been unable to break down a stubborn Burnley backline that have kept their shape brilliantly and are certainly not afraid to put their bodies on the line.

The visitors' attacking ambitions have been limited, although they look menacing from set-pieces with Tarkowski and Mee challenging for every ball.


Tottenham 0-0 Burnley

Eric Dier

Just the one minute of added time to be played at the end of this first half.

Tottenham appeal passionately for handball after Eriksen's shot cannons into Stephen Ward. The referee is unmoved.

At the other end, Gudmundsson collects a long diagonal pass and proceeds to cut inside onto his left foot before lashing a shot wide of Lloris' right-hand post.

Arfield wins a corner as Burnley make an increasingly rare foray forward. Spurs clear their lines and quickly look to break once more.

Matthew Lowton cops a painful blow while committing a foul on Alli, who rather saw the challenge coming.

The Burnley right-back will require attention from the physio.

Alli executes a sharp turn and releases Davies down the left-hand channel. The Welsh full-back fizzes in a low cross for Kane, who takes a touch and sees his close-range shot blocked by Tarkowski.

Alli then heads well wide from the resulting corner.

Eriksen's lofted long pass is nodded down by Son into the path of Alli, whose powerful shot goes behind off Mee.

It's been block after block after block in this first half from Burnley. Dyche should certainly be pleased with the commitment of his defenders.

Dele Alli

More Spurs pressure comes to nothing as Burnley stand firm and refuse to give an inch.

Pochettino's men are camped in the opposition half but have thus far created preciously few clear-cut scoring chances despite dominating possession.

Dier's speculative cross is diverted behind by Tarkowski. The corner falls to Vertonghen, whose ambitious half-volley from distance takes a huge deflection and loops harmlessly into the arms of Heaton.

Alli berates the referee after committing a blatant shove on Mee in the Burnley box. He needs to keep a lid on his frustration.

More frustration for Pochettino as an attempted pass out towards Trippier runs behind for a goal kick.

So far, so good as far as resilient Burnley are concerned. Can they make it through to half-time with the score still level?

Trippier, who may have been unsighted by the piercing sun, concedes a needless corner that is headed onto the roof of the net by Tarkowski.

Gudmundsson stays down in a heap after being bundled over by Davies. He limps to the sideline after treatment but looks OK to continue.

Kane's latest effort is blocked by Mee. Gudmundsson thwarts the short corner and Eric Dier heads Eriksen's searching cross over the bar.

He did well to get up above both Mee and Vokes, yet the header lacked accuracy.

Harry Kane

Son shoots straight at Tom Heaton after collecting a threaded through pass from Jan Vertonghen.

The offside flag is raised. That looked tight to say the least.

A real chance for Tottenham following Johann Berg Gudmundsson's foul on Alli as Kane, searching to end his August drought and notch for the 100th time in Spurs colours, heads Ben Davies' left-wing free-kick over the top.

He might have been better off leaving it for Alderweireld, who was waiting just behind.

Alli tries to beat Defour but becomes frustrated and gives away a cheap free-kick in the opposition penalty area.

Son also goes down easily under pressure from Cork. No foul, says referee Mason.

Alli is the latest Tottenham player to try his luck, but Brady gets his body in the way.

Burnley are getting plenty of men behind the ball and look very disciplined in their shape.

Son and Eriksen get a slice of good fortune following an attempted intervention from Mee and the Dane's hopeful drive is blocked well by Tarkowski.

Burnley earn another corner and Brady's latest delivery is headed over by Mee.

This has been a very good start from Burnley, who are pressing high and forcing Spurs into errors. Lloris skews a goal kick straight out of play.

Robbie Brady stands up Eriksen and sees a dangerous cross-cum-shot turned behind by a back-pedalling Hugo Lloris.

Sam Vokes wins a corner off Toby Alderweireld. Centre-backs James Tarkowski and Mee both go for the same back-post ball and the former heads well over the crossbar.

Vital tracking back from Steven Defour, who nips in at the last moment to stop Christian Eriksen from connecting with a pull-back from former Burnley defender Kieran Trippier.

Dele Alli feeds Harry Kane early and the latter's shot is blocked by Ben Mee. Son then curls an atrocious attempt towards the corner flag.

The teams have emerged from the tunnel, the pre-match pleasantries are over and we are just about ready to get underway on a warm afternoon at Wembley.

Lee Mason is your referee.

Sanchez and Gazzaniga are presented to the Wembley crowd before kick-off...


Tottenham vs Burnley is not the only Premier League match taking place today of course.

Liverpool meet Arsenal at Anfield in the other 16.00 BST kick-off and earlier goals from Cesc Fabregas and Alvaro Morata helped Chelsea to a comfortable 2-0 win over Everton.

Jay Rodriguez and Peter Crouch both netted in a 1-1 draw between West Brom and Stoke in the West Midlands.

Wimmer is off to Stoke then it seems. Crystal Palace had also been heavily linked with the Austrian international along with the likes of Southampton, West Ham United and several clubs from both Germany and Italy.


Dyche has brought in five new faces this summer to date, with Wood's signing preceded by those of Jack Cork, Walters, Bardsley and Charlie Taylor.

Burnley have also raked in approximately £43.5m from the respective sales of Michael Keane and Andre Gray and could continue to reinvest that money before the deadline.

"We are still in the market for certain situations," Dyche said. "Despite it being a tough market I think the business we have done so far has been really good and I have been very happy with that. There are a couple of situations we are working on to see if they can come to life.

Sean Dyche

"Year on year we are trying to add to the quality and depth of the group. Of course there are specific areas at any club but generally it is just adding to the layers of quality. If there are quality players available and we can get them, then it can only enhance the group further and that is what we look to do."

So where exactly do these two teams stand with only four days left to elapse in the summer transfer window?

Tottenham have finally begun to play a role in the market after weeks of stubborn passivity, with Sanchez joined at Wembley by new third-string goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga.

Estudiantes defender Juan Foyth and controversial Paris Saint-Germain right-back Serge Aurier are also expected to sign and Pochettino confirmed in his pre-match press conference that he wanted three more arrivals.

Further outgoings also look inevitable with the likes of Wimmer, Nkoudou and Moussa Sissoko all attracting interest.

I am confident. We are working hard. We are trying to strengthen the squad and to bring in a few players more. From our chairman Daniel [Levy] and Steve [Hitchen] our chief scout we are trying to bring in the right profile.

We are working hard, a big effort from the club to strengthen our squad. I think it is so exciting now. We have ahead the Premier League and the Champions League, it's so exciting. We are going to play against the last Champions League winner in Real Madrid, and Borussia Dortmund and Apoel Nicosia.

We are so motivated and the club is excited too to try to strengthen the squad and be more competitive

Pochettino confirms that Wanyama's absence from today's match is due to injury.

"Victor has a minor problem with his knee and is not available," he said. "We'll assess him in the next few days."

Dyche also makes one alteration from his last Premier League lineup as the injured Hendrick is replaced by Scott Arfield in a midfield three.

Wood and fellow summer arrival Phil Bardsley are both named as substitutes.

Pochettino makes one change to his starting XI and shifts to a 4-2-3-1 formation, with Victor Wanyama, who looked notably off the pace against Chelsea and was caught in possession during the build-up to Marcos Alonso's late winner, replaced by Heung-Min Son.

Wanyama, presumably not fully fit, drops out of the matchday squad entirely. Sanchez makes the bench alongside 17-year-old midfielder Tashan Oakley-Boothe, while there is no place for Kevin Wimmer as he prepares to leave the club before Thursday's transfer deadline.

Mousa Dembele makes his 200th appearance in a Spurs shirt.


Team news from Wembley on the way in less than 10 minutes.

As for Burnley, summer signing Jon Walters joins long-term absentee Dean Marney on the sidelines after scans revealed that he damaged ankle ligaments during an eventful Carabao Cup second-round clash with Lancashire rivals Blackburn Rovers in midweek. Sean Dyche is satisfied that the injury is not as serious as it could have been, however.

Jon Walters and Jeff Hendrick

Striker Chris Wood, a £15m arrival from Leeds United, replaced Walters in the first half at Ewood Park and could make his first top-flight start for his new employers here.

Jeff Hendrick, who did not play at Blackburn, was also said to be doubtful with a thigh strain.

Davinson Sanchez is available to make his debut for Tottenham this afternoon after receiving a work permit and the necessary international clearance following his £42m club-record transfer from Ajax.

The highly-rated young Colombian defender, who has signed a six-year contract in north London, trained all week and is ready to go if called upon.

Georges-Kevin Nkoudou (foot), Danny Rose (knee) and Erik Lamela (hips) are said to be making good progress in their respective injury recoveries. However, none of that trio are ready to feature today.

"The Wembley effect is not the reason we lost the game. I thought the team played really well and it's not fair to blame the game on Wembley, because Wembley is for me one of the best places in the world, if not the one place to play football."

Mauricio Pochettino insists that Tottenham will not be adversely impacted by their temporary residence at Wembley, although a dramatic late defeat to London rivals Chelsea last weekend did little to quell whispers of a long-running hoodoo and extended their wretched recent record at the home of English football to only two wins from their last 12 visits.

Wembley Stadium

The Argentine will be desperate for his side to put any distracting talk of a curse firmly to bed this afternoon with a statement victory over a Burnley side who matched their total of away league wins from the entire 2016-17 campaign by stunning the nine-man defending champions on opening day but were subsequently beaten at home by West Bromwich Albion.

Burnley have won just one of their last six Premier League matches against Spurs and are without an away triumph against today's opponents in any competition since 1983.

Can memories of their last trip to Wembley - a 2009 Championship play-off final success against Sheffield United - inspire another shock and prolong Tottenham's misery at their adopted home?
