Michael Owen provides damning assessment of Spurs - Alan Sugar agrees

Michael Owen

The BT Sport pundit was unimpressed by Tottenham Hotspur's 0-0 draw with Burnley.

Michael Owen produced a damning assessment of Tottenham's 0-0 draw with Burnley on Sunday afternoon.

Spurs left Turf Moor with a share of the spoils after a contest in which neither team threatened to do very much at all.

Burnley had the best chances of the game in the first half but failed to capitalise, with their north London visitors producing a limp attempt at taking all three points.

And one moment in particular summed up the game, according to Owen: Paulinho's embarrassing miss in the second half, when the Tottenham midfielder tried an ambitious shot and got things horribly wrong.

Former Spurs chairman Alan Sugar, meanwhile, was in agreement with the BT Sport pundit.

Paulinho certainly didn't do himself any favours with another underwhelming performance for Tottenham, although his team-mates were hardly any better in terms of initiative and creativity at Turf Moor.

Burnley, too, could and should have done far more to liven up the encounter. But a point for the relegation battlers is much more useful than it is for Mauricio Pochettino's men.

Next up for Spurs is a Premier League clash with Aston Villa. Hopefully that one will be an improvement...
