Burnley scraps to scoreless draw with Tottenham Hotspur

BURNLEY, England (AP) — Harry Kane delivered a subdued performance in his first game as Tottenham captain, with a 0-0 draw at Burnley in the Premier League on Sunday hurting his team's slim hopes of Champions League qualification.

The 21-year-old Kane has been a revelation in his breakthrough season, scoring a joint-high 19 league goals and also on his debut for England last week, but he was starved of service against relegation-threatened opponents at Turf Moor.

Burnley created the better chances, with club top scorer Danny Ings forcing two saves from Spurs goalkeeper Michel Vorm in the first half.

Christian Eriksen drove Tottenham's best opportunity over the crossbar in the 69th.

Sixth-place Tottenham moved level on points with Liverpool and is provisionally seven points behind fourth-place Manchester City, which has a game in hand.
