Debutant Chris Wood scored in the second minute of stoppage time as Burnley came from behind to snare a point against Tottenham Hotspur in a 1-1 draw on Sunday at Wembley Stadium.

Dele Alli fittingly needed two-straight bites at the cherry to give dominant Tottenham Hotspur its lone goal.

Hugo Lloris made two solid interventions against Wood in the final minutes, but couldn’t manage a third.

Spurs sit 8th with four points, while Burnley’s four-point squad sits behind on goal differential.

Spurs probed the Burnley end early yet saw a Robbie Brady hybrid cross-shot turn into the moment’s first scare. Tapped out by Hugo Lloris, a corner came to nothing.

An 18th minute Ben Davies free kick went off a pair of heads, including Harry Kane‘s, and out for a goal kick.

Davies then spied Kane in the 38th minute off a Dele Alli started combination, but the England striker’s attempt was blocked out for what would be an unsuccessful corner kick.

Spurs finally found their way through the pesky Claret maze when Eric Dier‘s back flicked header of a corner came to Dele, who had two shots at it and buried the second effort.

Kane continued to be snake bit in August, hitting a shot through traffic and wide of the far post from well into the 18.

Lloris made a strong flying save on Brady to keep it 1-1 in the 72nd minute. At the other end, Heaton got low to slap away a Kane effort and then had to leap for Eriksen’s audacious outside of the boot shot.

Heaton had another stop on a partial Kane breakaway in the 76th.

Burnley didn’t quit, and Lloris slid to make an outstanding tackle outside his 18 on charging substitute Chris Wood. He’d late find his mark, and get the Clarets another point.
