06.10.1993 Spurs moved into the Third Round of the League Cup with a convincing win over Burnley.  Teddy Sheringham's long-range shot gave Spurs the ideal start in the third minute, but David Eyres drew the Clarets level just four minutes later.

Tottenham's cause was not helped when Darren Caskey was sent off, but substitute David Howells volleyed Tottenham ahead again.  Burnley hit the woodwork and had another effort kicked away from the line, before Sheringham headed home Anderton's free-kick the third to round off the win in injury time.

22.09.1993 Stephen Carr's debut lasted 80 minutes of the first leg of this Second Round League Cup tie which ended goal-less.

Ian Walker's foot stopped Adrian Randall giving the home side an early lead after just 14 minutes, when he reacted well to a deflection on the shot, but Teddy Sheringham had a good opportunity to score in the first half, just before the break when he moved inside Les Thompson and beat Marlon Beresford with his shot, but was dismayed to see it hit the inside of the post and bounce along the goal-line before it was cleared.

Sheringham was the main threat in the second half too, as Beresford saved a header and John Pender blocked another, while Jason Dozzell's pass was let go by Gary Mabbutt for Teddy to go through, but to shoot over in the 78th minute. Mabbutt's defending prevented Adrian Heath from scoring on two occasions, although Burnley did score in the 56th minute, but Kevin Russell's effort was given off-side.

19.01.1983

Situated down near the bottom of Division Two, Burnley caused a big League Cup shock with a 4-1 win at White Hart Lane. 

Having sacked their manager Brian Miller on the morning of the match, Frank Casper took charge and things looked grim when Terry Gibson scored for Spurs just into the second half, when Gary Mabbutt's throw in was flicked on by Glenn Hoddle for the striker to fire high into the net from a couple of yards out.   

But then the tide turned, with Graham Roberts heading into his own net from Brian Laws' 65th minute corner, then shortly after, a free-kick, conceded by Ray Clemence, was flighted into the box by Brian Flynn and Billy Hamilton to score from six yards to put Burnley ahead. 

With four minutes remaining, a cross shot from Steve Taylor went in off Roberts and Clemence to make it 3-1 and to rub salt into the wounds, Hamilton scored a last minute shot into the bottom corner with his right foot to knock Tottenham out of the League Cup.

Tottenham were in second place on the league ladder with Burnley propping up the table and it was the home team who ran out winners, with Peter Taylor, Neil McNab's first for the club and a jack-knife Glenn Hoddle header netting the goals to keep Spurs in the promotion hunt.

20.03.1976 Spurs turned in a good performance to take both points at Turf Moor with a 2-1 win over Burnley.

Despite having a number of goal-scoring opportunities, it took until the 59th minute for Spurs to open the scoring, when Ralph Coates' right wing run produced a cross that John Duncan finished off. Burley battled back, with Barry Daines, making his first start of the season, produced some good saves.

Eight minutes from time, Colin Waldron got the equalising goal for the Clarets, meaning a nervy ending for Tottenham. Burnley pushed forward looking for a winner, but Martin Chivers set up John Pratt to score in the 88th minute.

29.11.1975 Spurs met Burnley in the First Division at White Hart Lane and arrived with just three wins to their name.  Sporting a distinctive claret shirt with a blue V and that was perhaps the most notable thing about their appearance, with their side being hit by injury.

Ray Hankin had surprised Spurs by giving the Clarets the lead in the 24th minute, but as much as Spurs pressed for an equaliser, they could not break Burnley down. Losing Doug Collins to injury after 33 minutes, the visitors were further reduced to ten men, when Willie Morgan pulled a hamstring just before the interval.  He lasted only a couple of minutes of the second period, after trying to see if he could play on. 

Despite their reduced numbers, Burnley made it difficult for Spurs and it took until the 62nd minute to get the leveller, when a John Pratt corner was forced over the line by John Duncan's chest from very close range.  A second Duncan goal in the 73rd minute, this time heading downward and in from a Terry Naylor cross at the Paxton Road end, was enough to give Spurs the victory.  Ralph Coates almost added to the score late on, but was denied by keeper Alan Stevenson.

12.04.1975

Spurs slipped to a 2-3 defeat at Turf Moor with Steve Perryman and John Duncan scoring the Tottenham goals.  This loss kept Spurs third from bottom with three games to play. 

A poor first half saw Tottenham turn around two goals behind with Peter Noble scoring both goals. There was a second half fight-back by Spurs, as John Duncan scored a glancing header for the first in the 57th minute and then captain Steve Perryman hit the equaliser with a volley on 64 minutes to give the side some hope. However, just three minutes later, referee Jones handed Burnley the opportunity to score the winner from the penalty spot after Brian Flynn was adjudged to have been fouled by Perryman. Leighton James took the kick and successfully beat Jennings to make the score 3-2, which proved enough to take the two points.

05.10.1974 Spurs scored five goals in this First Division match with Burnley, but ended up on the losing side at White Hart Lane !!  And it was a memorable First Division game against Burnley for Mike England and John Pratt, but not wholly for the right reasons.  Both players scored own goals in the first half, but managed to get one each for the right side in the second half.

Mike England twice beat Pat Jennings to give Burnley a 2-0 lead with only 20 minutes on the clock.  The Spurs skipper for the day managed to nudge Ian Brennan's cross into his own net and then deflected Paul Fletcher's shot past his keeper.

There were only ten minutes remaining when John Pratt got low to head home a Jimmy Neighbour centre to flash the ball into the net, quickly followed two minutes later by Mike England completing a strange “hat-trick" of sorts with a goal at the right end, heading in from a left wing Neighbour corner at the Park Lane end to make it 2-2. 

This was not the end of the action though, as Coates went close in the second half with a volley that went just over the bar and then Leighton James burst through only for Phil Beal to take him out.  As referee Kirkpatrick brought out his book to take Beal's name, the Spurs defender poked him in the chest and was dismissed with three minutes of the game left.  It was enough time for Burnley to go for a winner and when James' shot took a nick off John Pratt to confound Jennings, it left Burnley 3-2 winners.

05.09.1973 A see-saw game saw Burnley leave White Hart Lane with two points after scoring the three of the five goals in the game.

Leighton James had put the Lancashire club ahead and it took goals from Martin Chivers and Cyril Knowles to put Tottenham into a 2-1 lead.  However, Burnley kept pushing forward and earned the win with strikes from Frank Casper, who pulled Burnley level with a penalty and shortly after the winning goal was scored by Doug Collins.

07.09.1968 Tottenham's first home win of the season was delivered in stunning style with a 7-0 victory.

A Jimmy Greaves hat-trick (including one penalty), two headers from Cliff Jones and a goal each for Martin Chivers and substitute Jimmy Robertson made it a good day for Spurs.

Jones' first goal saw him throw himself at the ball with his head in amongst the flying boots.

When the score was 3-0, Pat Jennings saved a penalty from Frank Casper.

16.01.1963 Burnley's revenge for recent FA Cup defeats at the latter stages of the competition was gained in a 3-0 win over Spurs at White Hart Lane in a delayed Third round match.

Twice postponed because of frozen pitches in the harsh winter of 1963, the game took place on a Wednesday afternoon, because of the disruption of electricity supplies, with the pitch freshly cleared after a morning snowstorm.  It did not deter a 30,000 crowd from turning out to see the tie. 

With the game being evenly shared between the two sides, it was the visitors who took the lead just before half-time, with Gordon 'Bomber' Harris scoring, then Dave Mackay put the ball past Bill Brown just after the break to make it 2-0.  Burnley striker Andy Lochead later added a third as Spurs went looking for a way back into the match.

24.11.1962 A nine game unbeaten run came to an end with a 1-2 defeat by Burnley at Turf Moor.

While Burnley had started well with Andy Lochhead hitting the base of an upright, it was Jimmy Greaves who gave Spurs the lead, just before the half-time break. The Spurs striker took a long pass from Blanchflower and lifted the ball over two Burnley defenders and beat goalkeeper Blacklaw with his finishing shot.

With Les Allen hitting the crossbar soon after the re-start, Tottenham looked as though they would be adding to their score, but from that effort, Burnley broke to the other end and equalised through John Connelly.

With chances at both ends, the winner came ten minutes from full time, with the home team getting it from a free-kick finished off by Ray Pointer.

18.03.1961 Spurs eased through to the FA Cup Final with a convincing win over their league rivals Burnley at Villa Park.

The conditions were not that amenable to playing great football, with a swirling wind around the ground and Tottenham were pitched in against their rivals on all fronts, Burnley.  But it was Bobby Smith's goal that put Spurs ahead in the first half, but following the kick off after half-time, it took just four minutes for Burnley to get the ball in the net.  However, it was disallowed and Tottenham went close on a couple of occasions before Smith netted a second to double the Tottenham lead.

Maurice Norman was putting in a fine shift at centre-half, but it was Cliff Jones who scored a third goal to put Spurs into the final where they would try to capture the second part of the Double.

27.09.1952 A late winner helped Spurs overcome Burnley at the Lane in a First Division meeting. 

Striker Len Duquemin had headed Tottenham into the lead in the 49th minute, following a cross from Charlie Withers, but Burnley stormed back to grab an equaliser when Brian Pilkington - a 19 year old making his debut - fired in a drive that Ted Ditchburn could only palm into the path of Bill Holden to slide it home. 

With the game going into the last minute, Les Medley put in a high cross that sliced off his foot and flew over the keeper and into the net for a 2-1 win for Spurs.

17.04.1909 Tottenham visited Burnley with just three games of the season remaining and just three weeks after the Clarets had knocked Tottenham out of the FA Cup at Turf Moor. 

With Spurs hopeful of promotion, this was a vital match and a win was desperately needed.  A well-placed header by Vivian Woodward put Tottenham ahead, with that lead doubled just before the half-time break.  As expected, the home team came out strongly in the second half and scored to make it 2-1, but Spurs held out against the Lancashire side to keep second spot in the table with the end of the season getting closer.
