Tottenham Hotspur 2/9 to win against Burnley in Sunday's Premier League clash

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino was left to rue his side's lapse in concentration after conceding a late equaliser to draw 1-1 at home to Burnley in the Premier League.

Spurs are coming off the back of a defeat, but so did Burnley in their last encounter, and Tottenham have dominated this fixture in recent seasons which will give them hope of getting a result.

"We're disappointed because we showed a lack of concentration at the end", said the Argentinean. If you remember the games that we played against Burnley at White Hart Lane, it was always very tough. Dele Alli is on the score sheet for the second time in three match this season.


"We conceded a goal with five or six players behind the ball".

"I am extremely pleased".

"I thought we actually handled the occasion well because it is a fantastic stadium, an unbelievable place against a very good side as well".


The striker, a club-record arrival from Leeds United earlier this week, scored the equaliser in the second minute of added time by thumping home a low finish from Robbie Brady's brilliant pass.

Tottenham found it hard to break down a stubborn Burnley defense, creating little to trouble goalkeeper Tom Heaton.

Aurier is poised to become their third acquisition of the summer after Sanchez and goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga, and Tottenham are hoping to do as many as two more deals before the August 31 deadline. A header was cleared off the line before Heaton tipped a 12-yard strike round the post and denied the striker from close-range.


"In the last game here against Chelsea [we conceded] from a transition after a corner, but today I think we needed to be stronger and try to avoid that chance".
