Tottenham vs Burnley LIVE!

A contested Harry Kane penalty on the stroke of half-time gave Tottenham a 1-0 Premier League win over relegation-threatened Burnley on Sunday, moving Antonio Conte's team into a Champions League qualification place.

Spurs climbed above north London rivals Arsenal into fourth on 68 points from 37 games -- the Gunners are on 66 from 36 matches and can return to the top four if they win at Newcastle on Monday.

Tottenham dominated the opening 20 minutes but Burnley's makeshift defence held firm with Nick Pope making several key saves and the visitors went close when Maxwel Cornet forced a fine stop from Hugo Lloris.

But in stoppage time before the interval, referee Kevin Friend was sent to the monitor to review a handball incident and ruled that the arm of Ashley Barnes had been in an “unnatural position” when the ball struck it.

Kane drilled the spot-kick into the bottom corner but Burnley's protests continued after the half-time whistle with angry exchanges in the tunnel.

Pope made two outstanding saves after the break to keep out Son Heung-min while Barnes struck the post for Burnley with a thundering drive from distance.

Harry Kane on the penalty

14:10 , Marc Mayo

“I think it’s a clear penalty, for sure it was the right decision. Some times you get them, some times you don’t.”

14:09 , Marc Mayo

The winning moment

14:03 , Marc Mayo

Full time!

13:59 , Marc Mayo

Tottenham edge Burnley to go fourth in the Premier League!

13:59 , Marc Mayo

90+4 mins: Whistles ring around the ground as the home fans refuse to give the ball back for a Burnley throw.

It eventually goes long but Son launches clear...

13:58 , Marc Mayo

90+3 mins: Kulusevski bundles Taylor over in the Burnley half to earn a booking, can Burnley create one more opening?

13:55 , Marc Mayo

90 mins: Four minutes of stoppage time, a vital finale coming up for both clubs...

13:54 , Marc Mayo

89 mins: It’s a frantic ending as McNeil finds space down the left and has a shot met by Kane’s sturdy block.

A really nice slide tackle by Collins denies the Tottenham striker the chance to create something down the other end.

Royal has succumbed to that early injury and comes off for Rodon. The Welshman will slot in at centre-back with Davies the left wing-back and Sessegnon moving to the right.

13:51 , Marc Mayo

85 mins: A sign of what’s to come, Weghorst easily wins a lofted set-piece into the box and finds Long, who tries the swivel-and-hit attempt Son performed a moment ago but scuffs his shot badly. It’s a hard move to pull off, to be fair.

Lloris, like Pope earlier, is booked for time wasting at a goal kick.

Some more time will be taken up with Bentancur on the deck after an innocuous tangle with Lennon.

13:48 , Marc Mayo

83 mins: Once again, we can expect a bit of stoppage time after Hojbjerg goes down with what looks like a groin injury. After a moment, he gets up to carry on.

13:46 , Marc Mayo

81 mins: SAVE!

Once again Pope produces a stunning stop to deny Son! A great turn-and-shot from the Korean is turned away by the keeper’s forearm to keep Burnley in the match.

13:44 , Marc Mayo

80 mins: A hearty cry of “Come on you Spurs” rings around the ground after some necessary geeing-up by Conte.

It is Burnley in possession however with the visitors now in a more constabulary 4-4-2, Weghorst flicking the ball on in the box with Cornet not on the same wavelength.

13:43 , Marc Mayo

78 mins: Here come those changes after Lloris puts the ball out for Royal to receive treatment.

Another wing-back going down is certainly not what Spurs need.

Barnes and Lowton depart forthe Clarets, with a warm reception for Lennon. Moura off for Kulusevski is the Tottenham change.

13:41 , Marc Mayo

75 mins: Half-hearted appeals from Davies as he tumbles in the box but Kevin Friend waves it away before Burnley enjoy a spell on the ball.

They’re sending on Lennon and Weghorst shortly.

13:38 , Marc Mayo

73 mins: Here comes Kulusevski, benched after being hit by that virus in the Spurs squad Conte mentioned pre-game.

Moura’s last play before coming off is to loft a cross from a good position on the right over the heads of every attacker.

Dan Kilpatrick at Tottenham Stadium

13:36 , Marc Mayo

There’s not much on the bench for Spurs but surely Conte will turn to Dejan Kulusevski before long. Lucas Moura has had his comments - but is so clearly a downgrade on the impressive Swede.


13:33 , Marc Mayo

68 mins: Tottenham are creeping back on top but Conte is energetically berating his players from the dugout - he knows a second is needed to stave off a late Burnley rally.

Here’s that Barnes effort against the post...

13:30 , Marc Mayo

65 mins: SAVE!

Pope denies Son with a brilliantly strong right-hand parry! Sessegnon overlaps down the left and Son hits the target, but it’s not enough for 2-0...

Dan Kilpatrick at Tottenham Stadium

13:28 , Marc Mayo

Perhaps the tight turnaround is having an impact but Spurs have been flat since half-time and Barnes’ rocket off the post should serve as a warning.

Burnley are not lying down and while it remains 1-0, they are going to be a threat - particularly from set-pieces.

13:26 , Marc Mayo

61 mins: POST!

What a hit by Barnes! From 20 yards, he takes the ball down and launches a piledriver that beats Lloris all ends up - but comes back off the post.

13:25 , Marc Mayo

60 mins: A break in play as Davies receives treatment but he should be fine to continue.

13:22 , Marc Mayo

57 mins: And there is another break which Sessegnon does well to craft from a bouncing ball down the left, before Son tees up Kane for a shot over the bar from 20 yards.

13:21 , Marc Mayo

55 mins: Better from Tottenham as Moura works a bit of space to set up a Sessegnon cross. Kane has a whack which is stoutly blocked before Sessegnon flies a shot over at the far post.

Maybe being forced to work on the counter will suit Spurs but they need to liven up first.

13:17 , Marc Mayo

52 mins: Burnley aren’t going away with Sessegnon blocking a Roberts cross out for a corner, which Sanchez has to fight to clear.

A chance to relieve the pressure after Brownhill sends Royal to the ground.

Meanwhile, Cork and Bentancur are having a to-do with an increasing bit of needle emerging in this game - Dier and Jackson also having words.

Dan Kilpatrick at Tottenham Stadium

13:15 , Marc Mayo

Burnley already playing with more intent since the interval and have twice won dangerous headers in the Spurs box. The stadium is still nervy but a more adventurous opponent should suit Spurs on the counter.

13:14 , Marc Mayo

49 mins: Moura receives a yellow card for a tangle with Taylor that came off the ball but just before a pass to where the Burnley full-back was heading.

Once again the ball in finds a Burnley head and Collins gets underneath it, diverting an effort over the bar.

13:12 , Marc Mayo

47 mins: CLOSE!

Burnley spark the first attack with a Brownhill free-kick played in from the right. Long gets up well, beats Dier and misses the far-post by a matter of inches...

Second-half begins!

13:09 , Marc Mayo

Hojbjerg kicks us off with no changes at the break.

Stats check

13:08 , Marc Mayo

The stats tell a story of a dominant half for Tottenham, which is not quite the full picture.

Cornet’s big opening for Burnley is their only shot and shot on target so far, against 13 and five for the hosts.

Spurs have also had 79 per cent of possession, and five corners to one.


13:03 , Marc Mayo

Take a look for yourself...

Was it a penalty?

13:00 , Marc Mayo

A big controversy with Burnley feeling very hard done by as Barnes did have his arm way out, and it certainly connected with the ball. But was it kicked too close to the striker for it to be worthy of a penalty?


12:55 , Marc Mayo

That is the break with Burnley furious at that penalty being given, which Kane rolled in delicately against the left-hand post.

GGGGOOOOAAALLLL! Tottenham 1-0 Burnley | Kane

12:53 , Marc Mayo

45+7 mins: It will be Kane to takes as Conte and Jackson argue in the technical areas...



12:52 , Marc Mayo

45+6 mins: Barnes is penalised for leaving an arm out and blocking Sanchez’s flick!

12:50 , Marc Mayo

45+5 mins: We’re into added on time after added on time. And a potential handball from Barnes is being checked by VAR...

Kevin Friend is going to the screen!

12:50 , Marc Mayo

45+4 mins: CHANCE!

A disappointed “aww” from the Spurs faithful as Son goes short from a corner but the ball finds it way to the opposite flank and Moura pulls it back for Kane.

Completely free and unmarked from 12 yards out at the near-post... he puts it wide. The best chance of the game.

12:48 , Marc Mayo

45+2 mins: Anger from the home fans as Kevin Friend fails to book Pope for mulling over a goal kick for quite some time. Eventually, the kick goes long to Cornet and Sanchez mops up well.

12:46 , Marc Mayo

45 mins: Kane flashes a shot wide from distance as four minutes goes up on the fourth official’s board.

12:44 , Marc Mayo

43 mins: A lack of energy is affecting Spurs, they are all a bit standstill as Royal plonks a cross against a Burnley leg before Hojbjerg lofts a cross into Pope’s arms.

A sign of tiredness after the derby, perhaps?

Dan Kilpatrick at Tottenham Stadium

12:41 , Marc Mayo

Frustration creeping in as the game becomes increasingly bitty following a fast Spurs start. We’ve just had a long break for Cornet to receive treatment and Burnley are taking every opportunity to time waste.

12:40 , Marc Mayo

39 mins: Not much life in the home fans as we drift towards half-time after that long break.

Spurs move the ball out right but it’s all a bit sloppy in the final third.

12:38 , Marc Mayo

37 mins: We’ll have some stoppage time later as Cornet takes a few minutes to get patched up, a big plaster and bandage wrapped around his head before play gets underway. He’ll carry on, though.

12:35 , Marc Mayo

34 mins: A moment’s pause after a head injury for Cornet. It looks like a bit of a cut on the Burnley striker’s forehead.

12:32 , Marc Mayo

31 mins: Tottenham just losing their sharpness as shown by Hojbjerg rolling a dolly of a pass right into Cornet’s feet by the halfway line.

They win it back though and come forward nicely, only for Sessegnon’s pass into the box for Moura being just overhit.

12:29 , Marc Mayo


This is actually turning into a fairly stable period of possession from Burnley, and Cornet is rolled in down the left to force a smart stop by Lloris one-on-one!

Before that, Roberts was booked for kicking the ball away after committing a foul.

Dan Kilpatrick at Tottenham Stadium

12:27 , Marc Mayo

Remaining patient is surely the key for Spurs against a Burnley side who are defending deep and in numbers. The chances are coming, with Kane having already gone close with two headers, so Conte will be urging his side not to get frustrated.

12:26 , Marc Mayo

25 mins: Hello, Burnley are on the up...

A great ball in from Taylor almost meets McNeil’s burst into the box but Sessegnon makes a strong header clear and Spurs survive the visitors’ first attack of the day.

12:23 , Marc Mayo

22 mins: A moment to contemplate attacking for Burnley as Barnes nicks the ball and beats his man, before laying an overhit pass towards Cornet which Tottenham deal with.

The away team have completed less than half of their attempted passes so far. And they’ve only tried 36.

12:21 , Marc Mayo

20 mins: Burnley appear to have switched to more of a 5-4-1 with Cornet moving out left and McNeil on the right flank, to cover off those marauding wing-backs of their hosts.

12:18 , Marc Mayo

17 mins: CHANCE!

An intricate move from Spurs ends with Sessegnon picking out Kane, whose header looks to be at least hitting the far-post but Collins flicks it wide.

Burnley clear the corner but Royal sends in a 30-yard piledriver which Pope has to parry over!

12:16 , Marc Mayo

16 mins: There is a strong “means business” vibe about Tottenham today with Davies the next to hit it from outside the box, straight at Pope.

They will have to be careful not to resort to long-range pumps all afternoon, mind. Burnley will be perfectly happy with that.

12:13 , Marc Mayo

13 mins: SAVE!

Moura gets his legs pumping and delivers a lovely hanging cross for Kane, who directs his header goalwards but it isn’t enough in the corner and Pope holds onto it.

Five shots and 86 per cent possession already for Spurs.

12:12 , Marc Mayo

11 mins: Moura has a hit deflected wide before Son, taking a short corner, sends in an near-post shot-cross that Pope has to parry wide.

The Korean then dazzles Cornet from the following corner before a poor cross leads to the ball being pumped upfield.

Dan Kilpatrick at Tottenham Stadium

12:10 , Marc Mayo

It has been all Spurs in the opening 10 minutes and they are zipping the ball around nicely. There were fears this could be like the Brighton game but Conte’s side already look so much sharper than they did that day.

12:10 , Marc Mayo

9 mins: Appeals for a penalty from the home end as Kane attempts to flick a header goalwards, but he’s offside. And it wasn’t a foul anyway.

12:09 , Marc Mayo

8 mins: Burnley save some breath with a couple of fouls won near their box, the latest after Roberts sticks his forehead on Sessegnon’s knee in competing for the ball in mid-air.


12:05 , Marc Mayo

4 mins: More threat down Spurs’ left as Kane sets Sessegnon away before his cross is cleared, with a long-range thump from Sanchez blocked.

A confident start from Tottenham.

12:03 , Marc Mayo

2 mins: We’re straight into a period of Spurs possession with Burnley set up in a 5-3-2, McNeil on the left side of the midfield three and Cornet off Barnes’ right shoulder.

Kane whips in a low cross from the left which Pope gathers under pressure from Davies.


12:01 , Marc Mayo

Burnley get us underway in north London after both teams take the knee.

Here come the players!

11:57 , Marc Mayo

Kick-off is just moments away...

11:55 , Marc Mayo

Harry Kane hailed Thursday’s win as one of the best at Tottenham’s new stadium, but insisted it will count for nothing if they do not beat Burnley on Sunday.

Asked if it was one of their best wins since the new stadium opened in 2019, Kane said: “I think so. The atmosphere was electric. The pressure was on us to deliver and we handled that really well. In a big game like this, at home, in our stadium, we had to win, otherwise Champions League was dead for us.

“So it was nice to respond that way, to show we’re capable of playing that way under that pressure. But it means nothing if we don’t win on Sunday.”

Golden Boot-chasing Heung-min Son has described Tottenham’s schedule as “madness” but admitted he was frustrated to be substituted in Thursday’s win over Arsenal.

“To be honest looking at the schedule, it is madness,” Son said.

“We are playing Thursday night and Sunday with a really early kick-off. It is a really quick turnaround, we need to do everything to recover: good food, good sleep and get ready to go again.”

Illness kept Dejan Kulusevski out of Tottenham’s starting line-up for Sunday’s game against Burnley.

Antonio Conte confirmed the Swedish winger’s stomach problems emerged the day before the game, which led to Lucas Moura being named in the XI with Kulusevski on the bench.

“Only yesterday to prepare for the game but this is the schedule and we have to play," Conte told BT Sport ahead of the game.

“Honestly there was a problem because yesterday Kulusevski didn't do the training session, he was sick with a stomach problem. He was not the only player to have this, maybe a virus came around into the team.

“Yesterday four players but it is okay. Kulusevski didn't have the training session, we have Lucas Moura. That is good and he came off the bench and I hope he is ready to come in.”

Gary Neville has backed Tottenham to pip Arsenal to fourth spot and ensure Champions League qualification after Thursday night’s dramatic north London derby.

“I think Tottenham will beat Burnley and Arsenal will have to win their last two matches - but I’m not sure they will,” said Neville after the game.

Injured Burnley star Ben Mee discusses his role as player-coach

11:15 , Marc Mayo

“I was asked to do a role for just a week or so but we’ve got a few results so gone on from there. It’s great to be involved with the team and do what I can. The lads have given me a fair amount of stick but have taken to me doing this really well.”

11:09 , Marc Mayo

James Tarkowski and Ben Mee miss out for Burnley, who look to be lining up with a five-man backline and two wingers to match their hosts.

Aaron Lennon and Wout Weghorst drop out from the XI that lost to Aston Villa.

11:07 , Marc Mayo

Dejan Kulusevski is only on the bench for Tottenham after suffering from illness, Lucas Moura gets the start on the wing.

Over on the red side of north London...

10:49 , Marc Mayo

Mikel Arteta is looking to put Arsenal’s north London derby defeat behind them with victory over Newcastle on Monday.

Antonio Conte criticised the Gunners boss after their 3-0 defeat for “complaining too much”, following Rob Holding’s first-half red card on Thursday night.

But Arteta has no interest in engaging in a war of words and, when asked about his counterpart’s claims during Saturday’s press conference, he replied: “I am fully focused on Newcastle.”

Evening Standard score prediction

10:30 , Marc Mayo

Burnley are desperate for points to beat the drop yet this is perhaps the wrong time to be arriving in Tottenham, with Spurs in fine form and with their own massive goal in sight.

A 2-0 Tottenham win.

10:26 , Marc Mayo

Predicted Tottenham XI: Lloris; Sanchez, Dier, Davies; Royal, Bentancur, Hojbjerg, Sessegnon; Kulusevski, Kane, Son.

10:21 , Marc Mayo

James Tarkowski is a doubt for Burnley along with Ben Mee, Jack Cork and Jay Rodriguez. Mate Vydra and Johann Berg Gudmundsson will miss the trip to the capital.

Caretaker boss Mike Jackson stated on Friday: “At the end of the day, for the players themselves - it's their livelihood, their bodies, and I wouldn't push or risk anyone to play when they're injured.

“A lot of players play with knocks and niggles and if players are right to play and fit enough then they're up for selection.”

Early team news
