After Harry Winks had been stretchered off with a worrying injury at half-time, Eric Dier and substitute Heung-Min Son scored in the space of 11 second-half minutes to prevent Burnley from getting the point they needed to equal their highest ever Premier League haul.

WHAT THEY SAID
Sean Dyche: "We feel that we can beat anybody there with the crowd behind us.
"We've turned up against the big boys and we love it when they come. When everybody is at it it’s a special occasion."
Mauricio Pochettino: "It will be tough. They are doing very well at home and we know very well that we need to fight from the first moment in the game.
"They are a very physical team, a very aggressive team and it will be tough. Not only must we give our best, we must be ready to fight for every single ball."
