Burnley took a point from Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley yesterday with the equaliser coming in stoppage time and just as they probably thought they’d got all three points.

Spurs’ boss Mauricio Pochettino said after the game: “Of course we’re disappointed, especially in the way we conceded the goal, only we’re responsible for conceding that goal. It was a lack of concentration at the end like it was against Chelsea and it’s a real shame after all our effort to concede a draw.

“I think we deserved more but in the last two games here against Chelsea and Burnley we’ve suffered from a lack of concentration at the end of the game.”

He added: “It’s true we had a lot of possibilities to score the second goal and kill the game and when you don’t kill the game, you always give hope to the opponent to play a long ball to a big striker. The feeling was if we don’t kill the game, that can happen and that’s how they scored.

“There is nothing to say now; we will work hard and try to fix the problems we’ve had at the start of the season.”

Pochettino might have been disappointed but Sean Dyche very definitely wasn’t. “I’m delighted, and in the end it’s an outstanding performance,” he said after seeing Chris Wood score that late stoppage time goal.

“We came here with a very tactical plan and it worked somewhat in the first half, without us making too much, but we weren’t in drastic trouble. I told the players they would react in the second half and unfortunately it was a mistake from us that got their noses in front.

“In the second half I already had in my mind the changes I wanted to make, and I thought they benefited the side. The whole mentality of the side changed and as we went on I thought we were outstanding and I personally think we deserved to get a point.”

He added: “You know you have to work hard to come away with anything against a very fine side, and I thought we did that. There was twenty minutes when we were playing at Wembley against Tottenham and we were absolutely first class.

“What a ball and what a finish for the goal by the way. It was absolutely first class and Chris will have that marker for himself of scoring on his debut at Wembley for a long time.”
