Premier League quick stats: Kane, King, Rondon, Tottenham, Huddersfield

Newcastle supporters
Newcastle are four points clear of the drop zone

Tottenham's Premier League title challenge suffered a setback after a damaging defeat at Burnley.

Ashley Barnes scored the winner for the Clarets in their 2-1 victory, while referee Roger East awarded a hat-trick of penalties in Bournemouth's action-packed 1-1 draw against Wolves.

Huddersfield, who had a man sent off, look doomed after being beaten 2-0 at St James' Park by Newcastle.

  • Clarets striker Chris Wood has netted four goals in his last four Premier League appearances, as many as in his previous 27 in the competition.
  • Tottenham suffered only their second defeat in their last eight away games in the Premier League, after losing two of the four before that.
