Tottenham Hotspur had the chance to narrow the gap between themselves and Liverpool to just three points this weekend, but failed to pick up a single point against Burnley.

Spurs were far from their best at Turf Moor, despite Harry Kane returning and scoring, as the Lilywhites lost 2-1.

This saw them fall six points behind the League leaders now, with eleven games remaining in the season.

Pochettino’s men also face a tough seven days this week, with games away to Chelsea and Dortmund, as well as a home fixture against Arsenal.

We now know one man who will not be involved in the Spurs-Chelsea game, as referee Mike Dean has stepped down from his role as fourth official (Standard).

This comes after Dean and Pochettino came to blows at the end of the Burnley game this weekend.

The Spurs manager was unhappy with some of Dean’s decisions, including the ghost corner given to Burnley from which they grabbed the opening goal.
