WATCH: Furious Mauricio Pochettino confronts Mike Dean as Spurs lose at Burnley

As the Spurs boss walked across the Turf Moor pitch following the 2-1 defeat by Burnley, Pochettino became engaged in a lengthy and heated exchange with Dean, who remained calm.

Dean was confronted by an angry Mauricio Pochettino after Ashley Barnes struck a late victor at Turf Moor on Saturday.

The ball went out of play after a sliding challenge between Burnley's Jeff Hendrick and Spurs' Jan Vertonghen - replays showing the final touch had appeared to come off the Irishman.

"For me it was obvious".

Asked what made him so angry by Sky Sports, he explained: 'Nothing. "The top sides have a way of controlling the game and we didn't allow them control". Something stupid happens and you react.

Spurs will be eight points off the top of the table if Liverpool win at Manchester United and Lloris accepted losing to Burnley is a massive blow for their title hopes.

"For me this was the big game", he added.

"That didn't happen and we need to find why, inside not outside". We expected a battle.

"Now that we are all relaxed it's hard to explain".

North Korea confirms leader on train to summit
Travel by train has been a favorite mode of transport for Kim Jong Un , and his father, Kim Jong Il, and grandfather, Kim Il Sung. Streets around the two places have been beautified with flowers and the flags of North Korea, the U.S and Vietnam.

"I knew very well before the game, and after the game, when we lose, that it is going to be hard to be a real contender", said Pochettino, who declined to comment on what his beef with Dean was about. Especially when you concede a corner that didn't exist.

"It was an open game when we scored".

"We've always got that lot to cheer us up guys".

Dean, the most flamboyant match official in the land, is still waiting for his 100th Premier League red card.

"It was a thorough performance and a good win".

They will know to expect a tough afternoon, though, having needed a stoppage-time goal from Christian Eriksen to win the reverse fixture at Wembley in December when Burnley were still in the mire.

Though Spurs played a patient game, they were absolutely flooded by Burnley who were able to shut down the attack on most occasions.

He then used the extra distance to send Kane clear to finish, and Dyche mused: "I'm bound to be aggrieved by it, at the end of the day, it goes out, a mixture of things - I don't think the fourth official wanted to be part of it, but actually catches it and plays it back to their man, that allows him to play quickly and that's one of those things".
