Speaking of the incident, Pochettino said: “Nothing happened, what happened on the pitch stays there. We keep going. We made a few mistakes. We conceded two goals. I have nothing to say.

“Congratulations to Burnley, they fought a lot and made it a game and of course we didn’t deserve the defeat but that is football and I can only say keep going.

“Sometimes we try to find answers and excuses to try and justify a defeat. It’s not normally how I react after a game but I knew before and after the game that if we lose then it will be difficult to be a real contender for the title.

“It is always the case that people complain on the touchline. We complain about every single decision.

“I’m going to accept everything that can happen from the FA. It happened on the pitch and I hope it doesn’t go any further.”
