Lucas heads Lilywhites into the last eight

Burnley v Tottenham Hotspur – Carabao Cup fourth round – Turf Moor – Report

Burnley 0-1 Tottenham Hotspur

Lucas Moura’s second-half header booked Tottenham Hotspur a Carabao Cup quarter-final berth following this narrow win at Turf Moor.

Lucas beat Burnley stopper, Nick Pope after Emerson Royal had picked him out to settle a tie largely dominated by the North Londoners.

Spurs went into the game off the back of a disappointing Premier League derby defeat at West Ham but recovered some pride despite passing up several decent opportunities.

Pope denied Giovani Lo Celso, while Harry Kane passed up a couple of half-chances.

Spurs return to Premier League action on Saturday, October 30 when they face Manchester United at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (5:30pm).
