Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino said it was important to follow up their dramatic qualification for the Champions League last 16 in midweek with victory against Burnley in the league.
The Londoners needed Lucas Mouraās 85th-minute equaliser at Barcelona on Tuesday to earn a spot in the knockout round, and another late strike on Saturday meant they keep up the pressure on the Premier Leagueās top two.
This time it was substitute Christian Eriksen who came to their rescue when he slammed his shot past Joe Hart in the 91st minute.
It looked as if the Clarets would come away with a deserved point following a tremendous defensive display. They limited Spurs to a handful of clear-cut chances, with Lucas Moura and Son Heung-min both going close, while Hart produced a magnificent save to deny Erik Lamela.
The victory moves third-placed Spurs to 39 points and within three of Liverpool in second. Burnley remain in 17th with 12 points ā two points above the relegation zone.
