Follow live updates like Tottenham host Burnley in a Premier League fixture that could prove crucial at both ends of the table. Spurs are looking to take advantage of their 3-0 win against Arsenal in the North London derby Thursday night and can move on their rivals and enter the top four with a win this afternoon. As Tottenham’s Champions League qualification hopes remain out of their hands, Antonio ConteThe Arsenal squad have the chance to ramp up the pressure on Arsenal ahead of their trip to Newcatle on Monday.

Burnley are under a different kind of pressure, as the Clarets battle to avoid relegation. Mike Jackson’s side have just three games left to secure their Premier League status and are level with Leeds, but with a superior goal difference and one game less, heading into the final week of the season. Burnley have picked up 10 points from their last five games to give themselves a chance, and they will be looking to catch up with Tottenham when this afternoon kicks off, just as Brighton and Brentford have done in recent weeks.

Whether Tottenham miss out on the Champions League will ultimately depend on such results, so Conte will know his team can afford no more slip-ups as the race for the top four draws to a close. Follow the live updates from Tottenham vs Burnley, below:

1652615184

Tottenham 0-0 Burnley

45 min: Four minutes of additional time to play at the end of the first half. Most due to the injury suffered by Maxwel Cornet.

Kane tries to find Lucas inside the penalty area but Lowton cuts him off. So far, Burnley have defended superbly in their own box.

Kane then works some space on the edge of the area and goes for goal, but he still drifts well past Pope’s right post.

43 mins: Burnley end the first half well. Collins sends a ball into Cornet but he can’t control it and the offside flag goes up anyway. The visitors now have a lot more ball.

Hojbjerg has it for Spurs. He sends a cross to the far post but Pope claims in front of Lucas. More frustrated building game from hosts.

Tottenham 0-0 Burnley

41 mins: Oh my God. Sanchez hooks a ball down the field for Sessegnon but it’s behind him and drifts well out of play. Very frustrating times for Tottenham. You could hear a pin drop inside the stadium right now. Arsenal supporters may be starting to take advantage of this.

Dejan Kulusevski is on the bench. You imagine that we will see it in the second half if it stays like that. Even if he is sick.

Tottenham 0-0 Burnley

39 mins: Return to action as Spurs introduce themselves. Dier cuts a ball into the penalty area but McNeil clears it for Burnley.

Visitors have again fallen very deeply since this Cornet incident. It’s been a disciplined performance from the Clarets so far.

Tottenham 0-0 Burnley

37 mins: Cornet has a patch put over his right eye and a bandage wrapped around it. He looks like a villain. I still don’t know which part of Sanchez’s body grabbed the Burnley striker, but it certainly left its mark.

The two managers discuss how to approach the end of this first half. Mike Jackson receives advice from player-turned-coach Ben Mee.

Tottenham 0-0 Burnley

35 min: Maxwel Cornet lost the ball. I think he took a hit when Sanchez cleared the ball, but there’s nothing clear on the replay. There is some blood around Cornet’s head, however. A weirdo.

Meanwhile, Conte lurks on the touchline. He has to find a way to break down that stubborn Burnley defence.

1652614444

Tottenham 0-0 Burnley

33 mins: Spurs had 88 per cent possession in the opening 10 minutes. The final 10 minutes were split almost exactly evenly. That’s how much Burnley have grown in this game.

Spurs are looking to regain the upper hand as they probe a path through Burnley’s low block. No way though! Burnley frustrates the hosts.

Tottenham 0-0 Burnley

31 mins: Emerson gives Tottenham a free kick on the right touchline inside Burnley’s half.

Son sends the free kick into the penalty area and McNeil clears it at the near post. Hojbjerg then kicks the ball straight to Cornet and the Spurs fans send out an almighty groan.

Tottenham 0-0 Burnley

29 minutes: Good luck for Burnley! They opened up Spurs so easily and suddenly Maxwel Cornet is behind. He lets the ball run across his body and unleashes an effort towards the first post which Lloris cleverly saves!

Good save from the Frenchman. Burnley are starting to feel joy.

Tottenham 0-0 Burnley

27 mins: It was such an important header from Sessegnon as he leaped up to get in front of McNeil at the far post. He aimed it at McNeil and away from danger.

Are Burnley starting to grow in the game? It was constant pressure from Tottenham for 20 minutes but it’s a bit more now.

YELLOW! Connor Roberts goes into the book for kicking the ball after fouling Sessegnon. Useless.
