Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes stun Spurs

Tottenham’s title challenge hit the buffers as they suffered a 2-1 defeat at Burnley, despite Harry Kane scoring on his return from injury on Saturday.

Spurs could have closed the gap to leaders Manchester City and Liverpool to two points but fluffed their lines as they were blunted by Sean Dyche’s dogged outfit, with Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino clashing with referee Mike Dean at full-time.

There was controversy at both ends when Chris Wood headed the hosts in front (57) before Kane – on his first start for six weeks – drew his team level (65). That seemingly set the platform for another late Spurs rally but it was Burnley that notched the decisive goal with seven minutes remaining when Ashley Barnes prodded home from close range.

Burnley are now unbeaten in their last eight Premier League games – their longest unbeaten top-division run for 44 years.

Kane looked sharp in the early stages but Burnley sat deep and defended in good numbers to keep Spurs quiet in attacking areas. Barnes curled a sumptuous effort just over from a tight angle just before the break as the teams went in level.
