First-half goals from Harry Kane and Erik Lamela – either side of an Ashley Barnes wonderstrike – gave Spurs the points which move them up to sixth place in the Premier League table.

Here’s how Mauricio Pochettino’s men rated:

GK: Hugo Lloris – 7/10

It took a wonderstrike to beat him.

RB: Kyle Walker – 6/10

Untroubled defensively, but rather underwhelming going forward.

CB: Federico Fazio – 5.5/10

Did some very good defending in patches, but his overall lack of speed is still a big worry. He got outpaced by Danny Ings, but, fortunately for Spurs, Lloris came to the rescue.

CB: Jan Vertonghen – 6.5/10

Solid throughout and looked really comfortable in possession, even with Burnley playing a very busy high press.

LB: Ben Davies – 6.5/10

Picked up a yellow card on two minutes for a late tackle on George Boyd. Did well after that poor start, though.

Ben Davies, Tottenham

CM: Ryan Mason – 7/10

One of the best players on the pitch in the first half. He was taken off just before the break with an injury. Tottenham missed him.

CM: Nabil Bentaleb – 7/10

Another classy and dominant display from the Algerian, who is becoming the player that the under-motivated Mousa Dembele should be.

AM: Erik Lamela – 7.5/10

Looked confident right from the word go, but that confidence grew after he cut inside from the right and bent a brilliant long shot into the net to score his first ever Premier League goal. His link-up play was excellent and he constantly wanted the ball.
