But as for Spurs, the three points maintains their unbeaten start to the season, leaving them in second behind reigning Champions Manchester City.

“I really liked the performance,” Postecoglu said.

“Going a goal down isn’t the best way to start a game but it happens and the reaction from the boys was outstanding.

“They kept their heads, we played our football, really committed to working hard and once we got a hold of the game I thought we were dominant all the way through.

“We knew Burnley would be really aggressive when we were playing out but we played through that really well and then we had the quality up front to finish it off.

“We’ve had some tough away games but the way we’ve navigated that has been outstanding, so from our perspective – while it’s very early – there are some good signs there in terms of the character and belief they have.”
