Tottenham Hotspur's Premier League title charge took a severe dent as they suffered a 2-1 defeat away to Burnley on Saturday afternoon.
Spurs top scorer Harry Kane made a surprising return to the line-up, with Fernando Llorente dropping to the bench in the process.
The Spurs striker nearly marked his return with a goal as he cut in from the right before drilling a left-footed effort just wide of the upright on 15 minutes.
It took a while for the home side to get going, but they went close to breaking the deadlock after 33 minutes when Ashley Barnes' first-time volley sailed inches over Hugo Lloris' crossbar.
Unfortunately, that proved to be the final clear-cut opening in the half as both sides struggled mount any serious chances in the latter stages of the stanza.
Spurs came out firing in the second half and went close to opening the scoring through Kane and Juan Foyth in the opening 10 minutes
It was the home side who broke the deadlock in the 57th minute, with Chris Woods nodding home a cross from Dwight Mcneil.
The visitors weren't behind for too long as they restored parity on 65 minutes as Danny Rose's long throw released Kane, who got beyond the Burnley backline to fire past Tom Heaton.
With 15 minutes remaining, Mauricio Potchetino introduced another attacking player into the fray as Erik Lamela replaced Foyth.
However, Burnley snatched the winning goal with seven minutes remaining through Ashley Barnes, who slotted home from close range after Gudmundsson's initial effort was saved.
