Burnley 2-1 Tottenham: Kane return as Claret stun Spurs

EPL By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 23/02/2019

Harry Kane returned from injury as Burnley stun Tottenham Hotspurs 2-1 in the week 27 of the Premier League encounter at Turf Moor on Saturday early kick-off.

The Clarets opened the scoring shortly after the break as Chris Wood rose highest to head home Dwight McNeil's inswinging corner.

Kane, making his first appearance since 13 January, equalised after latching onto Danny Rose's quick throw-in and poking past Tom Heaton, before Ashley Barnes tapped in Burnley's second late on to dealt Tottenham's Premier League title hope.

The match ended amid drama as the frustrations of Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino spilled over at the final whistle.

The Argentine, who earlier was clearly unhappy about the awarding of the corner that led to Wood's opener, angrily confronted referee Mike Dean before being by pulled away by Burnley's Phil Bardsley.

Spurs stay in third place, five points behind Liverpool who face Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Burnley rise to 13th and are now six points clear of the relegation places.
