Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino: Wembley was not the problem

Premier League team news: Tottenham vs Burnley

That is Tottenham's temporary home for this season.

Tottenham lost to Chelsea last week after Marcos Alonso scored twice in a 2-1 win for the Blues, with Spurs replying through a Michy Batshuayi own goal.

"It was hard because they were tough and it was a tough game".

"That was our mistake. But our concentration is something we need to improve on".

Everton face their third away game in six days as they drew 1-1 at Manchester City last Monday night before coming away with the same scoreline at Hajduk Split in the Europa League on Thursday night.

"But we gave them the chance to score and for me that is tough to accept".

"In football, if you're not concentrated and focused sometimes when you're exhausted, you concede or gave the opponent the possibility to score".

It was very almost two a couple of minutes later when Eriksen gave the ball to Harry Kane in the box but he saw his curling shot go just wide of the post much to the frustration of the striker, who still couldn't score in the Premier League in August. We created a lot of chances second half and deserved to take something.

It wasn't the most attractive of goals as he got on the end of a Christian Eriksen corner kick.

Unfortunately for Burnley, the ball fell straight back at the feet of Ali, who drilled it home for his second goal of the season.

Tottenham Hotspur welcome Burnley to Wembley Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon, and are big favourites to come out on top given the gulf in class between the two sides.

However, Wood snatched a late point for the Clarets when he raced onto Robbie Brady's through ball and smashed his finish beyond the helpless Hugo Lloris.

"I thought the belief and the endeavour of the side to get a point was outstanding", said Burnley boss Sean Dyche.
