Graham Roberts makes bold Tottenham claim after Burnley victory
By Dominic Toner
Graham Roberts has described Tottenham’s win over Burnley as their result of the season.
Spurs managed to keep the title race alive after a victory over the Clarets, while leaders Chelsea suffered a shock 2-1 against Crystal Palace.
The north London club managed a 2-0 scoreline over Sean Dyche’s side and moved seven points behind Chelsea in the table.
Eric Dier and Heung-Min Son netted second-half goals and proved they can manage without talisman Harry Kane.
However, the three points came at a cost as central midfielders Harry Winks and Victor Wanyama were both removed due to injuries.
