Burnley 2 Tottenham Hotspur 1

Deadly duo on target again as Clarets roll on, Spurs’ title hopes were dealt a huge blow as they became the latest team to feel the wrath of re-born Burnley.

 The Clarets extended their unbeaten run to eight league matches following a breathless second half, where Ashley Barnes stroked home a dramatic later winner after returning Spurs striker Harry Kane had cancelled out Chris Wood’s opening goal.

 Burnley’s in-form strikers now have 11 between them in the unbeaten run this calendar year, spearheading the Clarets' climb away from danger.

 And pitted against a side coming off four league wins without star striker Kane, Burnley’s latest three points was arguably their best yet.

 The match started in a raucous manner, with the Clarets willing to press Spurs when out of possession.

 As Spurs struggled for rhythm in the opening minutes, Burnley kept shape while Wood and Barnes tried to squeeze the away side.

 Young flyer Dwight McNeil also showed flashes with his directness, proving problematic for Tottenham.
