forty two min: Kane attempts to burst by means of the Burnley back line by 1-twoing crisply with Sissoko. But Tarkowski stands agency. Kane operates into him and yelps in suffering ahead of tumbling to the ground. He’s not acquiring a penalty, or much sympathy either. Sooner or later he will get up and will get on with it.
40 min: Gudmundsson robs Hojberg and will make off down the right. He loops to the much submit for Wooden. As well much forward, far too robust. Aim kick … but this is much better from Burnley, who are starting to trigger Spurs a couple of issues.
38 min: Taylor garrinchas his way previous Doherty down the remaining. A pretty drop of the shoulder and a twinkle of the toes.

Lloris claims the 1st on-focus on effort and hard work by either side.
36 min: Brownhill requires the established piece himself. He’s wanting to curl over the wall and into the top rated remaining, but will get right less than it, the ball sailing significant over the bar and deep into the stand.

34 min: Ndombele cuts in from the remaining and blooters a shot straight into Long’s startled coupon.
33 min: “This is turgid things,” writes Stephen Carr. “The readings on my ‘Percentage Football-o-Meter’ are off the scale.” Rely by yourself lucky. The needle’s sheared thoroughly clean off ours, and is now coptering by means of the air in direction of Blackburn.
31 min: Kane drops back with a look at to playmaking, but there is no room for him to run in. Burnley have regained composure and form at the back, right after a couple minutes of getting pulled this way and yon.
29 min: Spurs proceed to dominate the activity. They’ve been the much better side, however they’ve but to seriously heat Pope’s hands. A reasonably major caveat, to be fair.
27 min: A pretty Son tender-shoe shuffle confuses Lowton, sending him off in the improper direction, and making it possible for the Spurs striker to mail Davies into room down the remaining.

23 min: The ensuing free kick is hoicked straight out for a purpose kick. Pope owes Lowton a wee dram or two.

Pope’s remaining his purpose huge open, but Son requires a major 1st touch, making it possible for Lowton to appear throughout, get in the way, and inevitably concede a backyard-wide variety foul. He’s bailed his keeper out big-time there. Son is livid with himself for passing up the possibility to return the ball into an empty net.
20 min: Taylor, deep on the remaining touchline, loops a wonderful ball in direction of Barnes in the centre. Barnes tears very clear of the Spurs back line and slams into the base remaining, a amazing end. But he understood he was miles offside. The flag goes up inevitably.

17 min: Pope requires his sweet time over a purpose kick. A small bit before, Doherty did some pretty unusual issues to the room-time continuum by taking just about 50 %-an-hour over a throw. As a consequence of all this hanging about, there is been small flow to this activity so much.
fifteen min: Wooden wins a extensive ball down the center, chesting down less than force from Dier and Sissoko, teeing up Barnes, who slices a 25-garden effort and hard work well remaining of the focus on. Burnley’s entrance two are putting on their own about in the unpretentious method.
fourteen min: It requires a when to tidy Alderweireld up. Ointment is used to the wound, which is by his right eye, some dressing is pressed on, and a bandage wrapped right all-around his noggin. He’s now good to proceed.
11 min: Barnes goes up with Alderweireld and cops an elbow in the mush. Now which is definitely a scheduling, Barnes likely into the jump top with his arm … and blood’s been drawn. But Michael Oliver’s not fascinated in handing out anything other than a free kick.
nine min: Davies scurries down the remaining right after a further raking ball, but operates out of highway. He’s ushered out of engage in by Lawton. Spurs are having fun with the lion’s share of possession right now.
seven min: No Leading League get started but for Gareth Bale, of training course. Justin Kavanagh thinks he could have labored out why: “Kalvin Philips’ deflected header versus Wolves previous week obtained me asking yourself regardless of whether control-freak coaches like Mourinho may ban the gentleman-bun as a back-header incident ready to transpire. Gareth Bale beware! Zidane could have been jealous of your barnet, but this new boss is all about hairline positive aspects.”
6 min: Ndombele spins neatly in the center of the park and sprays a extensive pass down the right for Moura, who reaches the box and shoots reduced and really hard. Pope will make a meal of professing on the greasy pitch, but completes the process right after a fashion.
4 min: A extensive cross into the Spurs box from the remaining. Gudmundsson heads back throughout from the much adhere. Wooden goes up with Lloris, and is penalised for the ensuing clatter. Both equally sides demonstrating lots of attacking intent in these early exchanges.
3 min: Kane chases right after a extensive pass down the right. Very long and Tarkowski enable him to bustle into the space and loop a shot over the bar from a limited angle. A dazzling get started by Spurs.
two min: Brownhill goes into the ebook right after sixty one seconds. He’s harshly penalised by Michael Oliver for tugging down Ndombele from at the rear of. That is some no-nonsense refereeing! Penny for the thoughts of Virgil van Dijk.

Burnley get the ball rolling … but only right after the 22 gamers just take a knee. There’s no room for racism. Black life matter.
The groups are out! Burnley don their well known claret and blue, when Spurs are in their 1st-preference lilywhite. A pretty vintage aesthetic to tonight’s match. We’ll be off in a minute!
Sean Dyche is equally upbeat, however that doesn’t end him firing a further shot throughout his board’s bows. “All professionals have a obstacle, regardless of what club they’re at. It is been complicated in some approaches, but also pretty fulfilling, not just for me but the employees, the gamers and the town. So we will operate really hard to preserve that likely. I believe it is [1 of the hardest occasions]. Considering that the lockdown there has been a great deal of sounds off the pitch, a great deal of sounds about what we can do on the pitch in conditions of recruitment and finance. But the gamers are nonetheless doing work really hard, we have hardly ever been brief of the operate ethic. We just have to tidy up the facts and get back to successful approaches. I thought we were being acquiring there versus West Brom, and it is a big ask versus a side like Tottenham but we have delivered ahead of versus them. The effectiveness is the essential for me. We have to operate well in both equally bins. We’re likely to have to do that again tonight because they’re a good side.”
Jose Mourinho, in an easy-likely temper, speaks to Sky Sporting activities, and displays on the draw Spurs scrambled at Turf Moor back in March. “That match was the worst period for us. Two times right after, we had to engage in in Leipzig. We did not have attacking gamers. We lost listed here our previous attacking participant, with Bergwijn hurt, so that second was actually challenging. Now we have additional gamers, much better gamers, additional time to operate, a different type of engage in. But 1 detail doesn’t change: this stadium listed here, versus Burnley, is always challenging.” He goes on to praise support-device Harry Kane as a footballer and not just a goalscorer, when having fun with a good-natured giggle with the interviewer as the Lancastrian rain hammers down on their noggins. Feelgood variable: 10 out of 10.
Burnley make 1 change from the goalless draw at West Brom. Matt Lowton will come in at right-back in location of the hurt Erik Pieters.
Spurs make four improvements to the XI who went three up versus West Ham, let us accentuate the positives about that 1. Matt Doherty, Eric Dier and Ben Davies replace Serge Aurier, Davison Sanchez and Sergio Reguilon in defence, when up entrance Lucas Moura will come in for Steven Bergwijn.
