Tottenham legend hits out at Burnley for Wembley performance

Tottenham Hotspur left it late to grab all three points at home today as Burnley visited Wembley.

Sean Dyche’s men set up for the draw from the first minute, and were guilty of time wasting on countless occasions.

Two of the Burnley players were booked for the offence, but plenty more got away with it too, including Joe Hart.

Spurs eventually unlocked the resolute Burnley defence in the 91st minute as substitute Christian Eriksen latched onto a Harry Kane lay off to smash home the winner.

This rounded off a nice move involving a Llorente flick on, Dele Alli chest, Kane lay off, and Eriksen finish.

Tottenham were far from their best after Champions League travels in midweek, but they got the job done and remain five points behind League leaders Man City.

Spurs legend Graham Roberts was less than pleased with the Burnley time wasting today, and took to Twitter to voice his frustrations.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Burnley just parked the bus and time wasted on numerous occasions. How Joe Hart avoided a YC amazes me. I don’t remember this referee before and don’t think too highly of his performance.

    Spurs have always had a problem in recent years getting past “park the bus” teams.
