Tottenham conceded a late equaliser against Burnley to end their chances of a first Premier League win at Wembley.
After a stagnant first half, Dele Alli opened the scoring for Spurs just moments into the second half, converting from close range after Eric Dier’s flick-on from Christian Eriksen’s corner.

The hosts looked settle for a while, but Burnley began to put the pressure on to the end and Tottenham seemed to crumble.
In stoppage time, Chris Wood found room in between Toby Alderweireld and Kieran Trippier to grab an equaliser for the visitors at the death.

Here’s how Twitter reacted.
#thfc FT, 1-1. Wembley is a factor, of course it is. But a lack of cutting edge & pace, & naive “game management” also problems for Spurs.

Absolutely horrible. Only have ourselves to blame – just like last week. It’s not even Wembley. It’s just us not taking our chances. Poor.

Curses aren’t real.
The knock-on effects of significantly downgrading both starting FB/WBs are.

Not even anything to do with Wembley, just lackadaisical, as if it were a training exercise. So many not getting out of first gear.

Trippier was awol for the entire last ten minutes, why was he not hooked off, he was way out of his depth against average opposition

Piss poor. But I really don’t feel our season is out of 2nd gear yet. Too much uncertainty with transfers going on & team still changing.

Failed to see out a draw through being naive last week and this week no lessons learned. I thought these days were behind us. Really poor.

We seriously cannot play at Wembley ? Gonna be a great season….. Would rather play away for every game than there.

That has NOTHING to do with Wembley and everything to do with players not doing the basics. Passing was shit. 2nd to everything in last 20

Very impressed with Dyche changing things up and having a major impact on the game. Pochettino doesn’t do this enough.

That was like first season Poch. Go a goal up, look increasingly nervous until something bad happens.

I’ve tried SO hard to be positive about Wembley but team really not helping my cause. Gives excuse to write more “curse” headlines ?? #COYS

?Broken record alert: We NEED a first choice right-back, an attacking midfielder and a wide man by the end of the window. Like…NEED.

On Trippier: has played much better, but perhaps looks like a player worried about hanging on to his place rather than fighting for one?
— Adam Powley (@adampowley) August 27, 2017
Trippier isn't a bad full back but with our set up, his limitations are badly exposed. Especially without Rose on the other side.
