Mauricio Pochettino: Tottenham have a mental block... but not because of Wembley

Premier League team news: Tottenham vs Burnley

Tottenham await news on whether record signing Davinson Sanchez will receive clearance in time to play.

Danny Rose (knee) and Erik Lamela (hips) have progressed in their respective recoveries but are all still missing.

Burnley forward Jonathan Walters has been ruled out after injuring his ankle against Blackburn on Wednesday.

Sean Dyche said: "The belief and endeavour were outstanding". If you remember the games that we played against Burnley at White Hart Lane, it was always very tough. Of course, there are certain specific areas in any team. We are more interested in getting on with the game.

"The economy of football has changed so that even teams that have to sell often don't, or they just hang on, and on, to get the absolute maximum for any player".

Burnley had the better of the opening exchanges as they racked up the corner count and Brady's curling ball, which threatened to creep in at the far post, forced a save from Lloris.

"I think we can't complain about Wembley after this game".

Spurs lost their first game of the season at their temporary home 2-1 to Premier League champions Chelsea last weekend after Marcos Alonso struck a late victor. I can't see them winning this though. 'There are some days you start to think, "When is my chance going to come?",' he said before Sunday's match against Burnley.

Chelsea and Everton face off in the 2017/2018 English Premier League today.

The Clarets' last win away at Tottenham was a 4-1 League Cup victory in January 1983. In-between, they beat Hajduk Split at home in the Europa League playoffs and then followed that up with a draw on Thursday in the second leg in Croatia. It was their first home loss since a 2-1 defeat by Southampton in May 2016.

The result will also increase the speculation that Spurs are in the midst of a hoodoo at Wembley, having only won just twice in 12 outings at the national stadium since it was rebuilt.

Tottenham's all-time top scorer in games at Wembley is own goals with five.

But a lack of cutting edge up front from the likes of Harry Kane - who remains without a Premier League goal in August - saw Spurs squander what could be a precious three points.

He is one short of 100 Spurs goals in all competitions.
