Tottenham were sloppy at the back, and gifted Burnley the lead midway through the first half after they failed to clear the ball despite having more than one chance to do so. Ashley Barnes was there to capitalise for the visitors, handing them their first away league goal from open play of the season.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men started the game the brighter of the two, and continued this trend despite falling behind. Kyle Walker continued his brilliant form to provide the assist for Dele Alli to fire Spurs level, just six minutes after conceding at the other end.

Tom Heaton and the Burnley defence did their best to try and stop Spurs taking the lead for the first time in the match, but the hosts found a breakthrough in the 71st minute. Substitute Moussa Sissoko, just one minute after he was controversially given a yellow card, made a surging run through midfield, played Danny Rose through, who smashed a shot into the back of the net at the front post.

Spurs would go on to see the game out, and move to within just one point of the top four after Manchester City triumphed 2-1 over Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium. Mauricio Pochettino and Spurs now have ten days before making the trip down to the South coast to face Southampton on the 28th December.

Match-winner Rose was the subject of much praise from Spurs fans on Twitter after another amazing performance. The Englishman had three shots during the win, created four chances, made eleven crosses as well as completing six take-ons. Here is what Spurs had to say about Rose on Twitter post-match.

Full-backs Danny Rose and Kyle Walker were both outstanding for Spurs again. Walker provided the assist for the equaliser before Rose netted the winner. As well as doing their jobs defensively, the pair are becoming a real force for Spurs in attack, and this has been highlighted in the past few weeks and the rest of the season, becoming really important parts of the side.
