Tottenham travel to Burnley looking for the three points that would keep them within touching distance of the top two in the Premier League.

Predictions

Burnley have looked like a different side since the start of the year. Unbeaten in the league since Boxing Day, they have now climbed to 15th in the table but need to keep this good form going if they are to escape a relegation battle this season. Tottenham are looking good too however so Sean Dyche’s men will need to be on top form here.                                   

Spurs have dealt with their injury crisis in a very positive manner. Missing Harry Kane and Dele Alli – and Heung-min Son through international duty – there were some who thought their title campaign would falter. But Spurs have now won four in a row since their home defeat to Manchester United and are full of confidence ahead of the trip to Turf Moor.

Sean Dyche recruited well in January – bringing in the veteran striker Peter Crouch to add some experience to the front line. Kiwi striker Chris Woods has been on a rich vein of form recently and it is his goals in particular that have made the bookies rethink their Burnley relegation odds.

Three points away at Burnley is vital for Mauricio Pochettino given that Tottenham’s next two matches in the league are against Chelsea and Arsenal. This game will be tighter than the betting sites might have predicted two months ago but Spurs should have Harry Kane back – and the England captain could lead his club side to a narrow 2-1 victory.

Betting Tips

  • Tottenham to win and both teams to score

Burnley have started scoring again and that could be the difference between them and the relegated sides this season. 

  • Harry Kane to be first goal scorer            

Harry Kane is expected to fit to play against Burnley and enjoys this fixture – he’s scored three in his last four against Sean Dyche’s side.

Statistics

Head to Head

Tottenham beat Burnley 1-0 at Wembley earlier in the season and you have to go back to 2010 to find the last time Burnley won this fixture home or away.

Stats                

  • Harry Kane’s absence has seen him fall down the top goal scorer chart but he is still only three behind Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero.
  • Burnley’s goal scoring has greatly helped them since the end of December. 12 of their 29 goals have come in their recent seven match unbeaten run.
  • Christian Eriksen has chipped in with six goals in all competitions this season but his real contribution has been in making them for his teammates. The Denmark captain has nine Premier League assists – only Eden Hazard has more.
  • Burnley’s main problem has been conceding goals this season. Only Fulham have let in more in the Premier League.
