Tottenham's Danny Rose.

Danny Rose's woeful attempt at a cross during Tottenham 1-0 Burnley

Christian Eriksen's 59th goal for Tottenham was one of his most important for the club.

The Danish playmaker struck in the 91st minute to secure a 1-0 win over a dogged Burnley side, keeping Mauricio Pochettino's side third.

Spurs fans know how tight the race for the top four is and a win over Sean Dyche's men now heaps pressure on Arsenal and Chelsea.

Burnley made the game incredibly difficult at Wembley, sitting deep and doing whatever they could to waste time.

But in the end, quality prevailed.

However, there was one moment during the game from Danny Rose which was the complete opposite of quality.

Spurs' left-back attempted to whip the ball into the Burnley penalty area, but his attempt was beyond awful.


Rose's right foot makes contact with the ball first, with his left foot then knocking the ball harmlessly out of play.

It's always nice to see a top-level professional producing a moment that would be seen down the local five-a-side pitches.

Nevertheless, Rose is enjoying a return to form following numerous injuries and Spurs are in a very positive state right now.

But the 28-year-old defender recently revealed that Tottenham will not add to their squad in January.

Rose said, per The Sun: "It's no secret all the teams have spent a lot more than what we have.

"The manager did not make any signings in the summer and he is probably not going to make any signings in January.

"Well, I've not heard anything so I am guessing that will be the case. So for him to do what he has done and what he is doing now speaks volumes of him."

It could be a risk from Pochettino, but with most of his squad now fully fit and firing, the boss clearly feels he already has what he needs to fulfil the club's ambitions.
