Tottenham 1 Burnley 1: Late Wood leveller continues Wembley woes for Spurs

Wood debut strike leaves Spurs frustrated again at Wembley

Tottenham Hotspur's Wembley woes continued as they conceded a last-gasp equaliser in a 1-1 Premier League draw with Burnley at their temporary home on Sunday.

Mauricio Pochettino threw his bottle top in disgust at squandering two points, having lost to Chelsea at Wembley a week earlier.

Pochettino could look to start winger Son Heung-min after his side struggled to break down Chelsea, with Tottenham's attacking talents unable to unlock the rigid defence formed by Antonio Conte's side.

Alli converted from Eriksen's corner in the 49th minute after Ben Mee failed to clear and the England midfielder's initial effort came back to him off team-mate Mousa Dembele.

The England striker has still never scored in the Premier League in the opening month of the season, a barren run now standing at 13 matches.

With Burnley on the ropes following the opener, Kane missed another fine chance, drilling wide of Tom Heaton's left-hand post after being found by Eriksen.

As the game opened up Heaton made two fine saves in quick succession, the goalkeeper denying his worldwide team-mate Kane with a fine dive to his right and then reacting well to tip Eriksen's drive over the crossbar.

Kane was denied in a one-on-one by Heaton after being put through by Alli's header and then a well-worked move between Kieran Trippier and Eriksen resulted in Alli shooting straight at Heaton.
