Burnley 1 Tottenham Hotspur 1
By Burnley FC
March 7 2020
Top scorer Chris Wood was back with a bang as the Clarets extended their unbeaten Premier League run to seven games.
Wood’s return to the starting line-up for the first time in three weeks brought the striker his 11th goal of the season and another against Tottenham.
Unlike in last season’s corresponding fixture this was not to be in a winning cause as the Clarets couldn’t turn a magnificent first-half performance into all three points and movement above Spurs into the top eight.
Dele Alli’s second-half penalty stopped the rot for the visitors but Wood, who also scored a point-saving goal against Spurs at Wembley three years ago, made sure Sean Dyche’s men would get the least they deserved as they moved to within one point of the magical 40 with nine games of the campaign to go.
The Clarets had suffered a chastening 5-0 defeat at Tottenham in December but both clubs now find themselves in a different place.
And Burnley’s well-being was perfectly illustrated by a superb first-half performance which was up there with anything they’ve produced at Turf Moor this season.

Extremely disappointed with Sky after match coverage, totally biased, We were the home team but they decided to only interview Ali, none of our players, also Mourhino geting to speak first for 3 times longer than Sean, disgusting.
Anyways another point closer to sure safety.
