Mauricio Pochettino points to lack of concentration for Wembley struggles

  • Kane has captained England twice in the last five games including the draw against Scotland

Burnley subsittute Chris Wood, signed last week from Leeds, struck in stoppage time on his debut, getting on the end of a fine sweeping pass from Robbie Brady to claim a debut goal.

Dele Alli pounced on a poor defensive clearance at a corner after half time to seemingly deliver a cure for Tottenham's Wembley woe. "It will be tough but in the same way, we're so excited to start this competition".

- Spurs dropped their first points after going ahead in a Premier League game since losing 2-1 to Chelsea in November 2016 - they had won 21 consecutive matches when taking the lead before today.

The clinical manner in which he took his goal at Wembley, after coming on as a 57th-minute substitute, shows he has developed into a player ready to grab his chance this time around.

"The feeling is not so great because of the way we conceded the last goal", Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said.

"In football, if you're not concentrated and focused sometimes when you're exhausted, you concede or gave the opponent the possibility to score".

How the odds have changed for the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight
McGregor, meanwhile, basked in the adulation of his Irish fans who have poured into the Nevada desert gambling capital this week. An army of Irish fans poured out onto the Las Vegas strip following the weigh-in, dancing and singing in blazing hot sunshine.

The Lilywhites may be spending the whole season at the ground while work is carried out on their new stadium in Tottenham, but concerns remain that they struggle on the large Wembley pitch.

The powerful striker might not be the quickest player in a league where pace is seen as being a key attribute but Wood has plenty of other qualities to become a key figure for Sean Dyche's side following the sale of Andre Gray. The defender missed a Champions League game at Arsenal last season because he was not allowed into the country.

Erik Lamela, who missed the majority of the 2016/17 season due to injury, will miss out thanks to a hip problem but has begun outdoor work, while the Argentina international's fellow winger Georges-Kevin Nkoudou is expected to return from a foot issue after the global break. It is better it happens now. Now, we are going into an global break but when everyone is back, we will start to work hard. I think we need to stop.

"We need to be strong". I think he will score goals the way they play.

"The only way to fix that is by working hard during the week".
