The sad Burnley was beaten 4-0 by Spurs on Sunday to let the Clarets look over the shoulder in the relegation battle of the Premier League

The Clarets had their worst start in the capital when Gareth Bale got home within two minutes

Harry Kane made it two in fifteen minutes and Lucas Moura and Bale completed the scoring again

It was a chastening afternoon for Sean Dyche’s team, who were badly exposed in the back in a defensive disaster

Only Nick Pope prevented Spurs from dwarfing the 5-0 result they had in that game last season The Clarets goalkeeper made two excellent stops in the second half to deny Kane and Son Heung-min

The loss means Burnley is five points ahead of the bottom three after Fulham took a point at the Crystal Palace

Dyches will host Leicester City on Wednesday and Arsenal next weekend in hopes of bouncing back from a second consecutive bad performance

A Day Burnley Should Forget Nick Pope did well and made some major saves, but it was difficult to point to many positive results

Defensive problems contributed to Burnley’s fall and it was an afternoon the Clarets had to forget

Pope would do really well to push away a son’s shot while Spurs threaten again

Burnley had a few moments ahead of him this half but doesn’t look overly like a goal

Pope is really good at setting and knocking over a Kane sweeper from 25 meters away

The Welshman has the freedom of the park to touch and ripple on the fourth of Son’s Pass

Spurs work the ball well out of a tight area, and their pace on the counter leaves Burnley stuck

Massive request to Burnley for some of this, but can we see a bit of struggle from the visitors in this 45?

Clinically and dangerously spurs on break while the Clarets, who played well in future patches, were bad in the back and hobbled in attack

As early as the middle of the week, eyes will be on the game in Leicester for an important win

It’s too easy again Moura adds a third after Tarkowski’s header falls into the box

The Spurs man started the move as he advanced out of midfield and for the minute or two in front of the goal he was lounging in and around the penalty area without anyone picking him up

Burnley didn’t look bad in the final third, but every time spurs break they seem to have several acres of space and find gaps everywhere

The Clarets lost 5-0 here last season and you wouldn’t bet against a repeat of that score today

Brownhill can’t cut out a long ball and Kane is in the box and his shot is deflected by Tarkowski and goes into it

So far quite open game, in which Kane shoots far for the home team before Burnley puts together a few passages that do not offer a clear chance

Burnley is unchanged for the Spurs trip this afternoon Chris Wood is back on the bench

The frontman has been absent since losing to Chelsea last month, finished training this week and is back in the day’s squad

Sean Dyche has resisted the temptation to bring him back to the Burnley XI, with Matej Vydra working with Jay Rodriguez

Dale Stephens is fit enough to be among the submarines, but Robbie Brady, Erik Pieters, Ashley Barnes and Johann Berg Gudmundsson are left out

Burnley has received a fitness boost this weekend with the return of striker Chris Wood ahead of Tottenham’s trip to Tottenham in the Premier League this weekend

The Clarets forward has not played since losing to Chelsea in late January with a hamstring injury but has returned to training this week and is on for Spurs

Midfielder Dale Stephens is also back while Robbie Brady and Erik Pieters get late calls

Sean Dyche also announced that Jay Rodriguez has taken a hit and will be available, but Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Ashley Barnes (thighs) are left out

Burnley’s Nick Pope joked that he could see where his manager was from when Sean Dyche suggested he might be tempted to get a bag of chips and a beer from the goalkeeper given the current climate

Pope has been linked to a summer move to Spurs and Dyche when, when asked by Lancs Live, the head of the Clarets asked if a potential sale would require a “massive” offer: “If they have a bag of chips and a pint Offered of it camp, in a pub, how things are going I could actually take it ”

He added, “If anyone can find a way to change the rules of the country, get me a beer and a large bunch of chips, I’ll have to try to hold on to Popey the best I can”

Michael Owen believes Burnley can return from the capital with a positive result if they travel to Spurs this weekend

The Clarets are unbeaten in four Premier League games before the clash, while Tottenham have fought for form domestically

And Owen thinks Sean Dyche’s squad has the ability to deliver a performance they’ve already won at Liverpool and Arsenal this season

The former Liverpool striker said on his Bet Victor blog: “Incredibly, Spurs have lost both half and full time in five of their last six Premier League games

A win for the Clarets would go a long way towards keeping the Premier League safe as they try to keep their distance with the sides immediately below them

Sean Dyche is hoping to bring Chris Wood back to the squad after an injury, while Dale Stephens is also available
