Erik Lamela's superb first Barclays Premier League goal earned Tottenham Hotspur a 2-1 win over Burnley in an entertaining encounter at White Hart Lane.
The Argentinian, who arrived for a club-record fee from Roma prior to the 2013-14 campaign, had previously gone 25 league appearances without finding the net for Spurs, but he broke his duck in fine style on Saturday.
Lamela produced a sublime curling finish from 25 yards to net the winner in the 35th minute, after a strike of similar quality from Burnley's Ashley Barnes had cancelled out Harry Kane's header.
Kane met Nacer Chadli's pinpoint delivery midway through the first half - his 14th goal of the season in all competitions and third in as many matches.
Barnes netted the winner in Burnley's 1-0 victory over Southampton last weekend and, although there was a slice of fortune about that strike, there was nothing lucky about his third Barclays Premier League goal as he hit a magnificent effort into the top corner from just outside the area.
That goal was outshone by Lamela's effort, however, as Spurs completed a successful seven days, having defeated Swansea City last weekend and progressed to the semi-finals of the League Cup with a 4-0 thrashing of Newcastle United on Wednesday.
The hosts showed one alteration from their 2-1 victory in south Wales as Chadli came in for Roberto Soldado.
Burnley, unchanged from their clash with Southampton, threatened an early opener when Scott Arfield fired off target from Kieran Trippier's deep cross in the second minute.
After that promising start for the visitors, Spurs began to assert themselves on the game and took the lead in the 21st minute.
Kane's quick thinking at a free-kick released Chadli down the left and the striker broke into the box where he met the Belgian's perfect cross with a simple header from close range.
The advantage was short-lived, however, as Barnes arced a delightful finish into the top right-hand corner from 20 yards six minutes later.
Kane ought to have restored his team's lead soon afterwards, but he somehow missed his kick inside the six-yard box after Lamela had cut the ball back from the byline, with Christian Eriksen eventually blazing over.
Ten minutes before the interval, Lamela's moment of magic did ensure Spurs moved back in front as he cut inside on his left foot and curled a superb shot inside the far post beyond the despairing dive of Tom Heaton.
Tottenham Hotspur head coach Mauricio Pochettino: "It was a hard win but after six days it was our third game. It was difficult but we are very pleased with our players. It was a big effort from them.
"Burnley are a physical team with lots of long balls and Federico Fazio performed very well.
"Erik Lamela's strike was special. He is still young and he needs to keep fighting to show his quality."
Burnley manager Sean Dyche: "I'm not disappointed. This is a tough place to come, they have started to turn some decent results in. I thought we delivered a good performance, worked their keeper and affected their back four.
"It was a fantastic goal for Ashley Barnes, he worked hard for the team. Danny Ings also got in behind a couple of times but unfortunately he didn't score a goal. There are lots of good signs, the players are improving."
