Tottenham vs Burnley: Player ratings after Pedro Porro scores stunner in the FA Cup third round


Pedro Porro fired Tottenham into the FA Cup fourth round with a stunning goal that was enough to give his side a 1-0 win over Burnley.

Prior to the goal itself, it had not been a memorable game, there were few clear-cut chances for either side, with both lacking sufficient quality in the final third.

But Porro drove forward before unleashing a shot from outside the box straight into the top corner to seal the victory for Tottenham. It was a moment of individual skill that was enough for Spurs to book their place in the next round, and a memorable first goal of the season for the defender.

Here is a look at how the players from both teams did in the player rankings:
