Danny Rose scored a superb winner as we recovered from conceding an early opener to overcome Burnley and round off our home games in 2016 with a 2-1 win at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.
The visitors went ahead somewhat against the run of play when Ashley Barnes benefitted from a fortunate rebound off Mousa Dembele in the area and slotted past Hugo Lloris on 21 minutes, but we were level six minutes later when Kyle Walker’s low cross was turned in by Dele Alli.
We were enjoying the majority of possession and Burnley needed their England goalkeeper Tom Heaton to keep them in the game as he made good saves from Harry Kane and two from Christian Eriksen in the second half, but he could do nothing about our winning goal.
With 19 minutes remaining, substitute Moussa Sissoko led the charge forward before finding Rose in the left channel of the area and our England left-back rifled his shot past Heaton - a deserved goal after a fine individual display from the 26-year-old.
There were one or two nervy moments towards the end as Burnley looked to get the ball forward quickly but overall we dealt with their threats without too many problems, although Lloris needed safe hands to gather Andre Gray’s cross as Sam Vokes almost got a touch.
