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.

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.
