Results for Burnley vs Spurs

The title is not over yet

8:39 am


No Harry Kane, no Kyle Walker, no Danny Rose and the two starting defensive midfielders off injured after 29 minutes at a side with the sixth-best home record in the Premier League and who held Chelsea there and we still came away with a victory.

That takes belief. Without the belief, you don't have the commitment and without the commitment, you don't have the success. At half time Mauricio Pochettino changed the system, he didn't give a motivational talk, motivation is internal, he didn't talk about what the opposition were doing and how to counteract that, he simply changed the system, talked about new roles and left the team to it.

The Argentinian came out for the second half 5 minutes early, he trusted his side, he trusted his players to motivate themselves and gain the win we needed to maintain any pressure we could on Chelsea. While there is a mathematical possibility, you have t believe the title is possible, otherwise it isn't.

Chelsea lost and the gap is reduced to seven points, Manchester City are up next for Chelsea. If City can win that and we can beat Swansea City on Wednesday then the gap is four points. The pressure of a four point gap is a world away from a ten point gap.

Manchester City at home, Bournemouth away, Manchester United away, Southampton at home three days after they play us in an FA Cup semi-final and Everton away are their next five Premier League fixtures.

We face Swansea City away, Watford at home, Bournemouth at home, the FA Cup semi-final, Crystal Palace away and Arsenal at home. The next four games we need four wins and just imagine if Manchester City and Manchester United both beat Chelsea.

The title is not over yet.

Time for Janssen to step up to the plate

2:42 pm


When you look at the team selected today, it is worth a mention that Kyle Walker played 180 minutes for England, Mousa Dembele played for Belgium on Tuesday and Son Heung-min played for South Korea in midweek and had a lot of travelling to do, indeed in two articles I stressed that he would be tired and in need of rest due to arriving back after other players.

We are fortunate that Vincent Janssen has recovered from his illness so we can rest Son for at least the first half. Hopefully, Janssen scoring a goal from open play recently will lift some of the pressure off his shoulders and Mauricio Pochettino has been true to his word.

He criticised Janssen for not showing enough in training and the Dutchman has taken that on board and stepped up his efforts. Pochettino then told the media after he had come on for the final few minutes in our last game that as a result of the effort he showed in those few minutes and that he is showing on the training ground, that he would now get more opportunity. 

That opportunity has arrived and there is no hiding place, no excuses now. Winners don't make excuses, they nake their mark. Harry Winks made an immediate mark, it is time for Janssen to step up to the plate and provide a goal threat, indeed start scoring.

He has looked to me to be making his own chances in a way he wasn't before so there is encouragement to be drawn. A tough place to go and a big game for us after an international break. Where Christian Eriksen had to step up to the plate in the last game, Janssen has to do so today.

No rest for Son Heung-min

8:00 pm


Son Heung-min played 90 minutes for South Korea in their 1-0 home victory over Syria at the Seoul World Cup Stadium. The game was part of the Asian section of the World Cup qualifying games.

The result sees South Korea remain in second place on 13 points in their group behind Iran who have 17 points and ahead of Uzbekistan in third on 12 points.

The journey time from Seoul to London is 12 hours and there are three flights a day. Son usually gets back to Tottenham a day after everyone else on Thursday and thus has less training time. We play Burnley on Saturday afternoon and with Harry Kane injured Son may well be pressed into service.

Vincent Jansen is an option, but he pulled out of the Holland squad with an illness so it isn't known yet whether he will be fit for Saturday afternoon or not.

Burnley are a tough nut to crack at Turf Moor, they are currently the 6th best team in the country on their own patch with 29 points gained from 9 victories, 2 draws and 3 losses. That is the same points tally as Arsenal.

Spurs vs Burnley a game with history

7:00 pm

Tottenham Hotspur play hiost to Burnley and coincidentally both clubs were formed in 1882. Back in the top division, Burnley used to be a top team and we beat them in the FA Cup Final in 1962 when we retained the trophy from our double winning year. That season we finished runners-up in the old First Division, narrowly missing out on a second successive double.

The First Division is now the Premier League and is harder to win than ever. How will the game pan out, well statistically we have the upper hand when playing at home so fingers crossed for a positive result tomorrow.
