Commentary

That's all from us, we hope you enjoyed the game and we'll see you for the next one!
Those three points send Spurs above Arsenal in the fourth and final Champions League place! They've played a game more, but now put the pressure on their North London rivals to catch them! Burnley remain 17th, still above Leeds on goal difference, but miss the chance to move clear of the relegation zone, despite having chances.
Spurs had their backs to the wall for large parts of that second half, but Davinson Sanchez in particular stood tall in defence. He finished the game with two tackles, three interceptions, an interception and ten recoveries of possession! Rock. Solid.
The full-time whistle goes and Spurs hold on for a 1-0 victory! Burnley had chances in that second half but couldn't make them count, and Spurs managed the game well to gain three vital points in the top four race!
90' + 5' FULL-TIME: TOTTENHAM 1-0 BURNLEY
D. Kulusevski
Yellow Card
90' + 3' Burnley attempt to spark a counter-attack before Kulusevski fouls Taylor, and the Spurs substitute is shown a yellow card.
90' + 1' We're into four minutes of added time here as Burnley press on for an equaliser.
J. Rodon
Emerson
90' It's Emerson, not Bentancur, who will come off for Spurs, and Joe Rodon will come on to see out the game.
88' Kane only half-clears the ball from the free-kick, and McNeil picks it up before having a shot from the left blocked!
88' Bentncur goes down after getting into a tangle with Lennon, and eventually hobbles off with time running out for Burnley.
H. Lloris
Yellow Card
86' Lloris takes an age to take the free-kick, and is rightfully booked for time-wasting by the referee.
86' Weghorst heads the free-kick onto Long, who looks to turn and shoot but scuffs his effort wide of the target.
85' Weghorst taps the ball past Davies and is brought to ground by the Spurs defender, giving Burnley another chance to pile everyone forward for this free-kick.
83' Hojbjerg looks to have cramped up and goes down, and play halts again as the clock ticks down towards full-time.
81' SAVED!!!! Sessegnon takes on Roberts before finding Son in the box. He turns and shoots, and it's kept out by Pope's outstretched hand! The Burnley keeper looked so calm in that situation!
D. Kulusevski
Lucas Moura
79' Moura comes off for Spurs, and will be replaced by Dejan Kulusevski, the man he replaced in the starting XI for this game.
A. Lennon
M. Lowton
78' Lowton also comes off, and Aaron Lennon replaces him. That should see Roberts drop back into the full-back position with the ex-Spurs man going to the right wing.
W. Weghorst
A. Barnes
78' Burnley do now make changes, bringing off Barnes for another striker in Wout Weghorst.
77' Burnley are still above the bottom three regardless of the result, thanks to Leeds' woeful goal difference, but they'll want to put some increased pressure on Spurs as we approach the last 10 minutes. Both sides are yet to make a change, too, so any substitutions that do come on could well change the course of the game.
75' Collins picks out Cornet in the box, and he turns looking to shoot. He does so, but a deflection takes it away from Lloris, who gathers it just before Barnes can pounce on the loose ball.
74' Moura latches onto Hojbjerg's wide ball and races down the right. He crosses from the byline, but can't pick out a man and the ball flies over the top.
72' McNeil has made three key passes so far for Burnley, as well as having their highest percentage of successful passes in both halves, and making five crosses.
70' McNeil crosses from the left for Cornet, but Dier slides in and sends the looping deflected ball into the air for Lloris to catch.
68' Davies arrives on the edge of the box and crosses for Son, but a poor first touch takes it away from the South Korean and into the hands of Pope.
67' Spurs take another short corner which comes back to Son. He crosses for Kane diving in at the front post, but Long gets there first to volley it behind for another corner!
65' WHAT A SAVE!!! Spurs attack in numbers and Kane frees up Sessegnon down the byline. He cuts it back for Son, whose left-footed shot is diverted wide by a diving Pope! What a stop!
64' Son whips in a corner and Bentancur glances a header at the front post, but Pope gets down low to save and hold it!
63' Moura squares to Emerson, who looks to take on Taylor and shoot, but the Burnley left-back times a tackle beautifully to win possession and knock it away for the Clarets.
62' OFF THE POST!!! McNeil strides forward before playing in Barnes, who shoots from 22 yards and cracks his effort against the upright! That's Burnley's best chance so far, by a country mile!
61' Davies is down injured in the Spurs box and requires treatment, but looks okay to carry on as play eventually resumes.
59' Spurs recorded a whopping 78.3 per cent possession in the first half, completing 90.6 per cent of their passes. Burnley meanwhile, managed to complete just 70.5 per cent of theirs, but have managed more of the ball in the second half, with 44.7 per cent being more than twice their first-half possession.
57' OVER!!! Tottenham counter and Sessegnon does well to win the ball ahead of Lowton. He cuts inside and squares for Son, who lays off Kane before the England striker lashes a shot just over the bar!
56' BLOCKED!!! Spurs move the ball from right to left quickly before Sessegnon crosses for Kane. He chests the ball back and shoots on his left, but it's blocked by Taylor before Sessegnon puts the rebound over!
54' A small melee breaks out before a Spurs free-kick is taken as the four central midfielders from both sides clash. Cork was the aggressor, but the referee books no-one and tells the players to get on with the game.
52' A good cross from Taylor finds Roberts at the back post. He tries to cut the ball back across the face of goal, but it hits Sanchez's back and goes out for a corner.
50' Collins rises at the back post from the free-kick, but can't keep his header down as it clears the crossbar.
Lucas Moura
Yellow Card
49' Taylor looks to latch onto a throughball from Brownhill but is felled off the ball by Moura, and the Spurs forward is booked by the referee.
48' WIDE!!! Brownhill swings in a beauty of a cross, which is met by Long at the back post. He heads towards goal, and it bounces just wide of the target!
47' Roberts is shunted to the floor by a ball-watching Sessegnon, and wins a free-kick in a good position for Burnley.
46' Hojbjerg kicks off for Spurs, and we're back underway for the second half!
The sides are back out for the second half, and Spurs will want to hang onto this lead in the next 45 minutes!
Before Kane stepped up to score from the spot, Moura had been Spurs' most dangerous player, making three good crosses and four key passes in total, as well as having two shots, one of which was blocked, and providing constant link-up play for Kane and Son to profit from.
That late Kane penalty gives Spurs a slender lead going into half-time! Before that Barnes handball gifted Spurs a glorious chance from the spot, it had been a game with chances few and far between, and those chances hadn't been the best! Spurs have the lead though, and Burnley need to improve if they're to get any sort of result from this one.
45' + 9' HALF-TIME: TOTTENHAM 1-0 BURNLEY
Penalty Goal
45' + 9' GOOOOAAAALLLL!!!! Kane steps it up and drills the ball low into the left-hand corner, and with Pope unmoved, puts Spurs into a 1-0 lead!!!
N. Pope
Yellow Card
45' + 8' Pope's complaining to the referee about the awarding of the penalty, and he is booked for dissent by the referee.
45' + 6' Referee Kevin Friend heads to the pitch-side VAR screen for a closer look himself, and he's convinced too and gives the penalty! A late chance for Spurs to score from 12 yards at the end of the first half!
45' + 5' We're going to VAR here, checking a potential handball against Barnes. It's at very close range but has definitely caught his forearm, which wasn't exactly tight to his body!
45' + 4' WIDE!!! A bouncing ball from a Spurs corner eventually breaks Moura's way, and he rounds Taylor before squaring to Kane, whose first-time finish flies just wide of the post!
45' + 2' Bentancur picks up a loose ball and tries his luck from a good 30 yards, but sends the ball high and wide into the back of the stands.
45' + 1' Kane evades McNeil and shoots from 20 yards, but he drags it wide of the Pope's net for a goal kick!
45' We'll play four minutes of added time to close out the first half.
44' None of Spurs' attacks in this half have come with any real pace, meaning that Burnley's deep defensive line is always able to deal with them. The hosts need to catch the Clarets out with a more dynamic effort, otherwise their forays forward will keep having the same results.
42' Spurs look to mount an attack through Emerson down the right, but he's bundled over by Taylor and dispossessed!
40' Cornet is Burnley’s top scorer in the league this season, with his eight goals more than double any other player has netted for the Clarets. He is two goals from becoming the fourth Ivorian to net at least 10 times in his debut Premier League campaign, after Didier Drogba, Arouna Kone and Wilfried Bony.
38' Cornet's back on the pitch, and Burnley are back to 11 as half-time approaches.
37' It's a head injury, but Cornet looks okay to carry on after having his head strapped heavily by Burnley's medical team.
35' Cornet is down in Spurs' half, and the game is halted for him to receive treatment, and Burnley may be about to lose arguably their key player here.
33' Dier comes forward and crosses from the byline. It's a good whipped-in ball, but Moura can't connect properly at the front post and it bounces behind.
32' Sessegnon plays a clever one-two with Son and cuts inside, heading for the box. His final pass to Moura is a poor one though, and it rolls all the way through for Taylor, who clears!
30' Emerson and Taylor get caught in a tangle down the far touchline, and the Burnley left-back is penalised, giving Spurs a good crossing opportunity here.
28' SAVED!!! Collins intercepts on halfway and surges forward for Burnley. He plays in Cornet, whose low shot in the box is parried away by Lloris!
C. Roberts
Yellow Card
27' Roberts is all over Sessegnon and brings him to ground, kicking the ball away in frustration and being given the game's first yellow card in the process.
25' Burnley build good pressure and McNeil finds Taylor in space down the left. He crosses, but it's headed away by Sanchez before Barnes can get his head to it!
23' Kane tries to pick out Son with a lofted throughball, but it's headed down by Collins and dealt with fully by Long.
21' Cork clips Kane late as the Spurs striker advances down the left, and the Burnley midfielder is penalised by the referee.
19' Burnley have won just two of their last 18 Premier League away games, after back-to-back wins on the road in April and May last year. However, they did win their last away league game, coming from behind to beat Watford 2-1.
17' SAVED!!! Emerson picks the ball up in space and tries his luck from at least 35 yards! It's a good effort, and Pope parries it over the bar!
17' BLOCKED!!! Spurs come forward with pace and Sessegnon whips it into the box. Kane rises at the back post, but his header is diverted wide by Collins!
15' SAVED!!! Moura twists and turns out of several challenges, but doesn't shoot and finds Bentancur. He lays off Davies, who drives low from the edge of the box, but it's straight at Pope, who holds the ball!
13' SAVED!!! Moura takes on Taylor before crossing from the byline. Kane gets his head to it, but can't generate enough power on the header and Pope holds it with a diving save!
11' SAVED!!! Spurs take a short corner before Son crosses to the near post. It's got some speed on it, and almost catches Pope out as he parries it behind!
11' WIDE!!! Mours turns on the edge of the box and shoots, with a deflection off Taylor sending it wide for a corner!
10' Forward come Spurs as Kane spreads the ball to Emerson. He cuts inside the box and shoots, but it's blocked away for a throw by Collins!
9' After Bentancur slips in the box, Spurs recycle possession and Emerson crosses into the area. Sessegnon heads it on for Kane, but he's flagged offside before he can control the ball.
7' Spuurs cross into the box and Sessegnon rises for it. Long gets there first but it's not properly cleared, and Bentancur looks to shoot before it's finally dealt with by the Clarets.
6' Burnley are looking to complete their first league double over Tottenham since 1974-75, which was also the last campaign in which they beat them away from home.
4' Spurs build pressure as Kane finds Son. He looks to turn and shoot, but feeds Sanchez whose long-range effort is blocked.
3' Sessegnon keeps the ball well on the left, evading Long before finding Kane. He crosses low into the six-yard box, but it goes straight into the gloves of Pope.
2' Tottenham are unbeaten in their last nine home league games against Burnley, winning the last three by an aggregate score of 10-0.
1' Burnley get the game underway, and we are off and running in North London!
The sides are on the pitch, and kick-off is just moments away!
James Tarkowski is the big absentee for Burnley. He is out with a hamstring injury and replaced by Kevin Long. January signing Wout Weghorst is benched, with fellow new arrival Maxwel Cornet coming in for him, whilst Matt Lowton comes in for Aaron Lennon.
Spurs make only one change from their 3-0 win over Arsenal, with Lucas Moura coming in on the right for Dejan Kulusevski. Heung-Min Son is only one goal behind Liverpool’s Mo Salah in the league’s golden boot race, and he starts on the opposite flank.
BURNLEY SUBS: Wayne Hennessey, Wout Weghorst, Aaron Lennon, Phil Bardsley, Anthony Mancini, Bobby Thomas, Owen Dodgson, Dara Costelloe, Joseph McGlynn.
BURNLEY (4-4-2): Nick Pope; Matt Lowton, Nathan Collins, Kevin Long, Charlie Taylor; Connor Roberts, Jack Cork, Josh Brownhill, Dwight McNeil; Maxwel Cornet, Ashley Barnes.
TOTTENHAM SUBS: Pierluigi Gollini, Harry Winks, Joe Rodon, Dejan Kulusevski, Steven Bergwijn, Brandon Austin, Harvey White, Dane Scarlett, Matthew Craig.
TOTTENHAM (3-4-3): Hugo Lloris; Davinson Sanchez, Eric Dier, Ben Davies; Emerson Royal, Rodrigo Bentancur, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Ryan Sessegnon; Lucas Moura, Harry Kane, Son Heung-Min.
Burnley’s three-match winning run was brought to an abrupt end with a 3-1 home loss to Aston Villa, but Michael Jackson and Ben Mee’s Clarets still have the advantage over 18th-placed Leeds, with a game in hand and a much better goal difference than the Peacocks, who they’re level on 34 points with.
The hosts are still well in the hunt for a top four place, having beaten their closest challengers, and bitter rivals, Arsenal 3-0 in the North London Derby last time out.
Hello, and welcome to live coverage of this Premier League fixture, as Tottenham Hotspur take on Burnley.
