Tottenham boss Mourinho insists Dier will face Burnley amid police probe

There are many fantastic players that in first seasons in new countries they struggle.

"Obviously, I'm very much used to it now because I'm at the tail-end of my career and it's kind of normal to be in those situations [having a contract run down]".

Burnley were quickly out of the blocks, putting Spurs' creaking defence under pressure but the visitors were given a lifeline when Ben Mee clumsily tripped Erik Lamela in the 48th minute.

"I think protecting your family is nearly like a basic instinct, and I think his instinct to protect took over his control as a professional", Earle said Saturday on "Premier League Mornings". Adapting, yeah, it's hard, you get injuries.

Asked what Mourinho the manager would do with Mourinho the player; the 57-year-old gave an honest response.

Tottenham were lacking fight as well as invention and needed a fine save from Lloris to keep out a risky, curling free-kick from the lively Dwight McNeil.

Jay Rodriguez shot straight at Hugo Lloris from the edge of the box but the Tottenham goalkeeper spilled the shot and Wood pounced to tap home the rebound.

Mid-table outfit Burnley will face off against Champions League hopefuls Tottenham Hotspur in a Premier League clash at Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon.

Dele Alli celebrates the goal which earned Spurs a draw at Burnley.

"He hasn't got a job and he's still loved by the Spurs fans, so potentially that could happen".

"Come on! You need to get results and you need to pick it up, you've still got a good enough squad there to beat Norwich and to get results".

"If you lose focus, they can punish you".

"A lot (are there by) invitation, a lot of people with special status and probably it's the place of the stadium where I sometimes have doubts over if they are the real Tottenham fans because these (real fans) are the ones who support the boys until the last".

"I know that the Premier League is very hard, I know that some players take time, some players take a long time to adapt to a different league".
