Tottenham sealed their spot in the FA Cup fourth round after a 1-0 win over Burnley.

Pedro Porro settled the scrappy showdown with a sensational second-half strike, though the visitors squandered a golden chance to force a replay in stoppage time.

A flick-on from goalkeeper Arijanet Muric played through Zeki Amdouni but the forward couldn’t steer his audacious flick on target from just a matter of yards out.

That proved to be the very last kick of the game under the lights in north London. 

Mail Sport‘s KATHRYN BATTE was at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and rated both sets of players. Here is how they fared…

Emerson 6.5 – Solid defensively but was rarely tested by Burnley’s attack.

Davies 6.5 – Commanded the defence. Suffered a hamstring injury at the end and will be a big miss.

Udogie 6.5 – Got forward well. Had little to do in defence.

Skipp 6 – Still getting back to full match sharpness after injury. Nothing bad, nothing spectacular.

Bentancur 6 – Also finding his feet again after injury. Captained the side in Son’s absence.

Zaroury 6.5 – Created Burnley’s best chance of the first half with a clever pass.

Ramsey 6 – A quiet game as Spurs dominated possession in midfield.

Cullen 6 – Broke up some Tottenham attacks and survived a ridiculous VAR check for a red card.
