Follow live updates as Tottenham host Burnley in a Premier League fixture that could prove crucial at both ends of the table. Spurs are looking to take advantage of their 3-0 win over Arsenal in the north London derby on Thursday night and can move about their rivals and into the top four with a victory this afternoon. While Tottenham’s Champions League qualification hopes remain out of their hands, Antonio Conte’s side have the chance to ramp up the pressure on Arsenal ahead of their trip to Newcatle on Monday.

Burnley are under a different type of pressure, as the Clarets battle to avoid relegation. Mike Jackson’s team have just three matches left to secure secure their Premier League status and are level with Leeds, albeit with a superior goal difference and a game in hand, heading into the final week of the season. Burnley have picked up 10 points from their last five fixtures to give themselves a chance, and they will look to catch Tottenham cold in this afternoon’s early kick-off, just as Brighton and Brentford have done in recent weeks.

If Tottenham do miss out on the Champions League, will ultimately be down to results such as those, so Conte will know his side cannot afford any more slip-ups as the top-four race goes down to the wire. Follow live updates from Tottenham vs Burnley, below:

FT: Everton 2-3 Brentford

Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin has explained his disappointed after a ‘frustrating’ afternoon at Goodison Park.

He told Sky Sports: “Very frustrating. We started so well. A big decision has gone against us and it was difficult from there. We got the lead and we were defending, defending but unfortunately it went against us today.”

Speaking about his goal, he added: It came off me but unfortunately it hasn’t amounted to anything. A lot of disappointment having given so much today but we have to go again Thursday. We want to do it for ourselves, the manager and the fans.

“We dug deep. We showed spirit and we grafted. It is a long time to keep defending. We just have to pick ourselves up but we have the opportunity on Thursday to go again.

“It’s still in our hands. The chat after the game was positive. We have to rest and recover and work as hard as we possibly can on Thursday.”

FT: Everton 2-3 Brentford

Brentford matchwinner Rico Henry has given his reaction to their comeback win over Everton at Goodison Park.

He told Sky Sports: “It was a battle. Thomas Frank said it was going to be hostile. They came out fast. The manager said we had to match the intensity and that’s what we did.

“After that [red card] we had more possession. We knew we had to dig in there and stick together.

“Thomas Frank asked me to push on a bit when they went a man down and it paid off. He said keep moving the ball. We had to be patient.

“That’s our goal, we want to finish in the top 10. We’ll bring it to Leeds.”

FT: Everton 2-3 Brentford

A disappointing afternoon for Everton. Frank Lampard is going to have to go again on Thursday evening if his side are to secure the Premier League survival.

FT: Everton 2-3 Brentford

Full-time: That’s the final whistle. It’s a damaging defeat for Everton who have failed in their bid to secure Premier League safety.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s opener got things off to the perfect start for Frank Lampard’s men. But in the 18th minute they were then reduced to 10 men when Jarrad Branthwaite was sent off for preventing a clear goalscoring opportunity

A Seamus Coleman own goal levelled for Brentford, before Richarlison earned and scored a penalty on the stroke of half-time.

The Everton supporters hoped their side could hold on after the break but it wasn’t to be. Goals from Yoane Wissa and Rico Henry clinched all three points for Thomas Frank’s side.

Salomon Rondon was sent off late on as Everton were reduced to nine men. And they could not muster an equaliser as they remain two points above the relegation zone with two matches remaining.

90+2 mins: Mykolenko sends a cross straight out of play and that may well be all she wrote for Everton.

RED CARD! Everton 2-3 Brentford (Rondon, 88)

Everton down to NINE men for the final few minutes.
