LONDON, AP:

Danny Rose popped up from the back to score a second-half winner as Tottenham came from behind to beat Burnley 2-1 in the English Premier League yesterday.

The left back was put through for his 71st-minute goal by Moussa Sissoko, who could have been sent off moments earlier for a high challenge on Stephen Ward. Sissoko received only a yellow card.

"Moussa Sissoko has to go off, and he sets up the second goal obviously I am very disappointed about that," Burnley manager Sean Dyche said. "It was a blind challenge, a high challenge and simply a red card."

Burnley took the lead against the run of play at White Hart Lane through Ashley Barnes in the 21st minute, but conceded a strike by Dele Alli six minutes later.

It was Spurs' fourth win in their last five games in all competitions and kept them in fifth place, a point behind north London rival Arsenal. Burnley is 16th and three points above the bottom three.
