Tottenham left it late to beat Burnley at Wembley on Saturday afternoon.

Spurs are now just three points behind second-placed Liverpool and five behind leaders Manchester City.

It had looked like it could be a frustrating afternoon until the clock ticked into injury-time.

The long ball flew up to the edge of the area where Dele Alli forced it on to Harry Kane. The England star did well to hold off his marker and teed up the marauding Eriksen to slam home:

"Route one football! Simple but effective," said Nigel Reo-Coker on Radio 5 Live.

Burnley are in 17th spot, just three points off the bottom.
