  1. Farewell

    Burnley 0-2 Tottenham

    And that's that at Chelsea too, where the Premier League leaders have lost 2-1 to Crystal Palace.

    A huge day for Spurs after it looked like they would not break down a stubborn Burnley side for long periods.

    Follow all the reaction to today's games here.

    And the report on proceedings at Turf Moor is coming through here.



    Burnley 0-2 Tottenham

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

  3. Post update

    Burnley 0-2 Tottenham

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

  4. Post update

    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.

  5. Post update

    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.

  6. Post update

    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.

  7. CLOSE!

    Burnley 0-2 Tottenham

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

  8. 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
  9. GOAL - Burnley 0-2 Tottenham

    Son Heung-min

    That should be that.

  10. Post update

    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.


    Burnley 0-1 Tottenham

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


    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.

  13. Post update

    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...

  14. Post update

    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...

  15. '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. 

  16. Dier breaks the deadlock

    Burnley 0-1 Tottenham

    Eric Dier celebrates

    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.

  17. GOAL - Burnley 0-1 Tottenham

    Eric Dier

    Finally a corner comes off for Spurs...

  18. Post update

    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...

  19. Post update

    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.
