FULL-TIME

Burnley 0-2 Tottenham

And that's your lot. Spurs easily controlled the final stages to seize a vital victory at Turf Moor.

Burnley 0-2 Tottenham

There will be four minutes of added time at Turf Moor.

Burnley 0-2 Tottenham

Hugo Lloris punches clear a Robbie Brady free-kick and the Spurs keeper is fouled in the process, giving his side another chance to clear.

Burnley 0-2 Tottenham

Burnley look bereft of ideas of how to even set up a frantic finish here, all very comfortable for Spurs.

Barton's cross to substitute Steven Defour is overhit and Moussa Sissoko can clear.

Burnley 0-2 Tottenham

Ugly miss from Dele Alli. It's sloppy from Burnley in the build-up and Son pounces, squaring the ball from Alli who dawdles on his shot before dragging it tamely wide.

Burnley very stretched here though.

CLOSE!

Burnley 0-2 Tottenham

All Spurs in the final stages as Dele Alli's shot has Tom Heaton scrambling but lands just wide.

Son doubles Spurs lead

Burnley 0-2 Tottenham

Just after his miss, this time Son makes no mistake as he taps in Dele Alli's cross, with the Burnley defence carved apart at last.

Son Heung-min scores

GOAL - Burnley 0-2 Tottenham

Son Heung-min

That should be that.

Burnley 0-1 Tottenham

Spurs still aren't at their sharp best - this time Christian Eriksen coming foward to find Son Heung-min, who fires into the side netting.

SUBSTITUTION

Burnley 0-1 Tottenham

Sean Dyche rolls the second of his dice as Robbie Brady comes on for George Boyd.

SUBSTITUTION

Burnley 0-1 Tottenham

And that's the third enforced change through injury for Spurs today as Janssen comes off for Son Heung-min. 

Not clear what caused Janssen's injury, the Dutchman just sat down clutching a leg.

Burnley 0-1 Tottenham

No, it's a poor delivery from Scott Arfield.

Hang on, Spurs are dropping like flies - Vincent Janssen is down now...

Burnley 0-1 Tottenham

Coming from a scrappy corner, it didn't feel like it but that Eric Dier goal could be decisive in the title race, if Palace can hang on against Chelsea.

Is there any way back for Burnley? They have a corner here...

'Who knows?'

Chelsea 1-2 Crystal Palace

Chris Powell

Former England full-back on Final Score

Palace are on the front foot there... Spurs winning (0-1 v Burnley) and Chelsea losing - who knows? This title race might not be over. 

Dier breaks the deadlock

Spurs have plugged away with corners all afternoon to no avail but finally Burnley let their concentration drop and the visitors pounce.

Christian Eriksen's set-piece works its way to Jeff Hendrick towards the back post, the Burnley midfielder hacking at it, only to find Eric Dier who fires high past Tom Heaton.

Huge relief for all in white and Mauricio Pochettino on the sideline.

GOAL - Burnley 0-1 Tottenham

Eric Dier

Finally a corner comes off for Spurs...

Burnley 0-0 Tottenham

Kieran Trippier overhits another cross but Ben Davies does well to prevent the ball going out, putting it back across for Joey Barton to head out.

A seventh corner for Spurs...

Burnley 0-0 Tottenham

Vincent Janssen tries to barrel his way through the Burnley defence, who stand firm to knock the ball clear...

...but it falls to Moussa Sissoko, only for the France midfielder to clatter his shot well wide.

Indicative of Spurs' attacking malaise today.

Burnley 0-0 Tottenham

Another corner for Spurs. Another Burnley head first to it as Matthew Lowton rises to clear.

Into the last half hour.

Burnley 0-0 Tottenham

Bit of handbags as Ben Mee is not impressed with the way Vincent Janssen fell under his challenge.

A bit of a talking to from referee Stuart Attwell and all appears well.

Burnley 0-0 Tottenham

Watford have scored against Sunderland - ensuring this game is currently the clear favourite for last place in tonight's Match of the Day running order.

Not too many Spurs games this season would've fallen to that last spot.

SUBSTITUTION

Burnley 0-0 Tottenham

Andre Gray has kept the Spurs defence honest, despite not having any great chances, but is now withdrawn for Sam Vokes.

Burnley 0-0 Tottenham

Lovely stuff from Burnley as Barnes, Arfield and Boyd combine to try and open up the Spurs defence, before Barnes' shot is blocked.

GREAT SAVE!

Burnley 0-0 Tottenham

Excellent work from Tom Heaton to keep out Ben Davies' stinging left-foot drive.

Burnley 0-0 Tottenham

George Boyd does well down the right, cutting on to his left foot, but Spurs are able to block before Stephen Ward's follow-up effort hits Ashley Barnes in an offside position.

Still all very scrappy - Moussa Sissoko now with a dreadful touch when well-placed.

CLOSE!

Burnley 0-0 Tottenham

Vincent Janssen forces Tom Heaton into a decent low save and the Burnley keeper does just about enough to prevent Moussa Sissoko pouncing on the rebound.

The hosts are content to concede a corner that they then clear.

Burnley 0-0 Tottenham

...but Eriksen's free-kick is straight against the Burnley wall.

Spurs haven't scored a direct free-kick this season and on today's evidence, you can see why.

YELLOW CARD

Burnley 0-0 Tottenham

First booking of the game and it's for England and Burnley centre back Michael Keane as he finds himself the wrong side of Vincent Janssen and resorts to hauling down the Dutchman.

Christian Eriksen is interested...

Burnley 0-0 Tottenham

Joey Barton tries to find a Burnley head in the area with a cross from deep but Hugo Lloris is able to gather.

KICK-OFF

Burnley 0-0 Tottenham

And we're off again...

Burnley 0-0 Tottenham

Will Perry for Final Score at Turf Moor: "Harry Winks had his boot and sock off. He rolled into the Burnley dugout. Worrying moments for Harry Winks. It looks like an ankle injury."

Burnley 0-0 Tottenham

Ok, with all the delays the players are just coming back onto the Turf Moor pitch. We should be back under way shortly.

Burnley 0-0 Tottenham

In truth, that was a poor half from Spurs as they played right into Burnley's hands, making countless errors as the hosts harried and hassled them.

Their attack looks shorn of its usual menace and they've lost both Victor Wanyama and Harry Winks to injuries, the latter looking very serious.

That said, Dele Alli should have put Spurs ahead, firing wide as Christian Eriksen's shot was parried straight into his path.

Burnley have posed plenty of questions in attack too and will fancy adding another big-club scalp at Turf Moor.

HALF-TIME

Burnley 0-0 Tottenham

The stalemate remains at Turf Moor. Huge concern for Harry Winks here. He's carried off on a stretcher shortly after the half-time whistle.

SUBSTITUTION

Burnley 0-0 Tottenham

And sure enough Winks is replaced before the break as Moussa Sissoko comes on.

Unfortunately Winks really does not look likely to return - pretty much all the Spurs medical team are tending to him on the side as the game goes on.

Burnley 0-0 Tottenham

A Spurs attack is broken up and as Stephen Ward comes forward he evades the challenge of Harry Winks, who loses his balance and goes tumbling off the side of the pitch, clutching his left ankle.

The youngster looks in terrible pain. Could Spurs lose both their central midfielders before the interval here?
