Mauricio Pochettino said we only had ourselves to blame as Burnley snatched a late equaliser at Wembley on Sunday.

We looked in control midway through the second half, 1-0 up through Dele Alli’s strike and creating chances.

Tom Heaton came to Burnley’s rescue at that point with saves to keep out Harry Kane twice, Dele and Christian Eriksen in our most productive spell

However, the visitors started to carve out chances as well, Hugo Lloris this time at his best to deny Chris Wood and Robbie Brady. Unfortunately, Hugo could do little as Wood levelled 90 seconds into four minutes of added time as Burnley snatched a draw.

“Of course we're disappointed, especially in the way we conceded the goal, only we’re responsible for conceding that goal,” said Mauricio.

“It was a lack of concentration at the end like it was against Chelsea and it's a real shame after all our effort to concede the draw. I think we deserved more but in the last two games here against Chelsea and Burnley we've suffered from a lack of concentration at the end of the game.”

Needless to say, had one of our other chances found the net, it might have been a different story.

“It's true we had a lot of possibilities to score the second goal and kill the game and when you don't kill the game, you always give hope to the opponent to play a long ball to a big striker,” added Mauricio.

“The feeling was if we don't kill the game, that can happen and that's how they scored. There is nothing to say now, we will work hard and try to fix the problems we've had at the start of the season.”
