Harry Kane's best ever week ends with Tottenham low

Burnley 0 - Tottenham 0

By Martyn Ziegler

Harry Kane hailed the best week of his life despite his Tottenham side being held to a goalless draw at Burnley.

Kane (21) was chosen as Spurs captain yesterday after a week which has also saw him score on his England debut and make his first start for the national team.

Kane said: "Yes you could say it. It has been an unbelievable couple of weeks and one I won't forget for the rest of my career."

It was a frustrating end, however, as Burnley dug in to earn a precious point in their relegation battle and Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino admitted a top-four place may now be beyond his side - they are seven points off fourth-placed Manchester City.

Pochettino said: "We will try. It is true that it is not easy. This game was a very tough game and we need to try to win the most points possible in the next seven games.

"The way Burnley play it is difficult, because always there is long balls into the box. They are a very aggressive team and run a lot. It is difficult to find space to play.

"We played better in the second half and we made some chances but it was not enough to score. Three weeks ago Manchester City lost here. It is not an excuse but it is a very, very difficult team."

Burnley manager Sean Dyche claimed the Clarets had the better of the match and rued a gilt-edged chance missed by Danny Ings, who shot straight at Michel Vorm.

He said: "I think we edged the game, but there was not a lot in it."
