Tottenham were beaten 2-1 by Burnley at Turf Moor this afternoon in what was a disappointing outing for Lilywhites.

The result puts a massive question mark over Spurs’ title aspirations as Liverpool could now go 8 points clear with a win at Old Trafford tomorrow.

To people’s surprise, Mauricio Pochettino decided to hand a start to Harry Kane who marked his return with a goal. However, that wasn’t enough as goals from Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes either side of Kane’s goal saw the Clarets take all three points.

Burnley’s first goal, however, was mired in controversy as the corner that led to the goal seemed to have been incorrectly awarded. Replays showing that the ball came off a Burnley player before it went out of play.

While some Spurs fans liked the passion that Pochettino displayed, others felt the 46-year-old’s reaction was a bit over the top. Here’s how some fans reacted to the news:


Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Mike Deans career has been hugely successful in making incorrect decisions ,unfortunately when they effect your team it makes it worse. How he has Been retained as a referee to me,has always been a complete mystery . He has certainly effected many matches to the detriment of Spurs and really one can hardly blame Poch for his objections.
    It’s about time Deans was given the boot..
