Burnley strike late as Tottenham's Wembley woes continue

Wood's equaliser for Burnley rescued a point for Sean Dyche's side and saw Spurs concede another late goal in consecutive fixtures at Wembley.

Last season the Englishman outscored the likes of Eden Hazard and Philippe Coutinho, though the Brazilian played considerably fewer minutes, and eased to his second consecutive PFA Young Player of the Year award.

"It's another good game against a tough team in Tottenham but we'll be going there to get a result".

"If you do not kill the game, you can not show that lack of concentration at the end - we conceded a goal with five or six players behind the ball".

Midfielder Idrissa Gueye, who missed the last game with a tight hamstring will be back in the lineup while Sandro Ramirez remains sidelined with a heel problem.

It should have settled the Tottenham jitters but with last season's Golden Boot victor Harry Kane struggling to end his August jinx - he has never scored for Tottenham in the month - they could not kill off Sean Dyche's side.

"I'm pleased for Chris Wood, and it was an outstanding pass from Robbie Brady, sublime, and a fantastic finish - a keeper like Lloris could only watch it go in".

Once again though Mauricio Pochettino will be left thinking what do his side have to do in order to win at the National Stadium, where they always seem to struggle playing.

After the upsetting 2-3 defeat at home to Burnley in the season opener, the Blues pulled off a 2-1 victory over Tottenham last weekend. A header was cleared off the line before Heaton tipped a 12-yard strike round the post and denied the striker from close-range.

"In the last game here against Chelsea [we conceded] from a transition after a corner, but today I think we needed to be stronger and try to avoid that chance".
