Spurs 1 Burnley 1

Dele Alli’s goal early in the second half was cancelled out by a stoppage-time Chris Wood strike as we were held to a point by Burnley at Wembley Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The visitors kept it tight and compact in defence during the first half, ensuring they always had plenty of numbers back and, while we enjoyed the majority of possession, we struggled to create chances.

Harry Kane and Eric Dier sent headers over the bar, with Ben Mee and James Tarkowski doing the same at the other end of the pitch, while Tarkowski was proving a rock at the heart of the Burnley defence, blocking our shots time and again.

The goal came four minutes after the break when Christian Eriksen’s corner landed at the feet of Dele and with his second attempt, he smashed the ball past Tom Heaton.

That opened the game up and, as Burnley came out of their shell in search of an equaliser, we created some good chances on goal, only for Heaton to deny Kane twice, Eriksen and Dele in a 10-minute spell.

But having not taking the opportunities, we were always susceptible to the counter-attack and when Robbie Brady’s clipped ball over the top found substitute Wood breaking from deep on his Premier League debut, Burnley’s new signing drilled into the far corner to level it up.
