Burnley earned a valuable point against Tottenham Hotspur to boost their chances of Premier League survival. The Clarets even had chances to win the game themselves, but the normally reliable Danny Ings failed to make a glorious first-half opportunity count, reports BBC
Tottenham were very slow out of the blocks, and couldn’t work any attacking moves together. The Londoners had striker Harry Kane as their club captain, but he failed to have much of an impact. He had little support from his midfielders, which led to a quiet showing.
Burnley, by contrast, were strong from the outset, and looked the most likely take the lead. Danny Ings could well have put them ahead after capitalising on a mistake from Tottenham’s Ryan Mason, but his close range shot was straight at Spurs goalkeeper Michel Vorm.
Fortunately, his mistake wasn’t too heavily rued, as Burnley did manage to keep Tottenham at bay at Turf Moor to earn a point, but they certainly had multiple opportunities to get all three. The result still sees them in the bottom-three, while Tottenham’s top-four hopes are all but over for the season.
