Paulinho's worst shot of the season contender summed up the Burnley-Spurs snoozefest
The Brazilian’s horrible attempt at goal was the highlight in a poor 90 minutes of football.

HARRY KANE FAILED to inspire Tottenham to victory in his first game as captain as they were held to a dire 0-0 draw at struggling Burnley.

Kane was handed the armband in the absence of the injured Hugo Lloris, but the England striker was ineffective in a lacklustre display from the London club which ensured they were unable to move above Liverpool into fifth place.

Neither side was able to break the deadlock, but Spurs’ Brazilian midfielder Paulinho did produce this truly awful effort in the second half.


A point was enough for Spurs to leapfrog Southampton into sixth spot, but their chances of securing UEFA Champions League qualification look increasingly slim with seven matches remaining. Burnley deserved at least a point at Turf Moor, but may see this as a missed opportunity a day after QPR and Leicester City secured much-needed victories in the battle to avoid the drop.

Sean Dyche’s men have now won just one of their last 10 top-flight games, although a draw enabled them to move back above QPR into 18th spot.
