Burnley vs Tottenham

This Saturday, Tottenham will travel to Turf Moor to take on Burnley for their 29th league appearance of the season. This match comes after the clubs’ exit from the FA Cup to Norwich. Spurs have been inconsistent lately, dropping valuable points in their last 3 league matches. They have lost their last 2 of those; LLDWWW. Jose Mourihno appears to be slipping up after doing a fine job in the last few weeks – taking spurs from the lower half of the table when he signed as Tottenham’s boss to 5th place. Now his side has slipped to 7th place after Spurs failed to win any of their last three matches. Now, Mou will be looking to reward the travelling fans by grabbing all three points and going to 5th place depending on the results from Manchester United and Wolverhampton Wanderers games. The Portuguese manager will likely put forward a 4-3-3 formation with the trio of Bergwijn, Lucas Moura and Lamela leading Spurs’ attack.

Meanwhile hosts, Burnley who are currently 9th place on the league table – just two points below Tottenham will be looking to get back to winning ways. They have enjoyed a better form than their counterparts in recent weeks and remain unbeaten in their last six games; WWDWWD. Their last premier league match ended in a 0-0 draw against Newcastle United. Else a win might have placed them in 3 straight wins in 3 matches. Now they will be looking for that victory that eluded them when they played against Newcastle United last weekend. According to Whoscored.com, Burnley coach, Sean Dyche will likely play a 4-4-2 formation with Rodriguez and Wood leading the attack as they seek a victory at the great expense of Jose Mourinho and Tottenham at Turf Moor.

The first leg of this tie ended 5-0 in favor of Tottenham. A brace from Harry Kane (5’, 54’), and goals from Lucas Moura (9’), Heung Min-Son (32’) and Moussa Sissoko (74’) secured the victory for Spurs. Burnley were very poor in that game – getting only one shot on target despite having a ball possession of 49%.

Burnley’s Chris Wood was fit enough to come into the game at last weekend’s 0-0 draw against Newcastle and could replace Matej Vydra in the starting XI. Meanwhile, Tottenham’s Eric Dier remains doubtful as the club waits to see if he would be punished by the FA for storming into the crowd to confront a fan after the penalty shoot-out defeat to Norwich in Wednesday’s FA Cup match.

A 1-1 draw at the end of this fixture is predicted.
