An improving Burnley team welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Turf Moor hoping to extend an impressive seven-game Premier League unbeaten run (W4, D3).
After a disappointing start of the season, the hosts have notably raised their performance in the past couple of months, but they still have a long way to go before ensuring the top-flight status for another year. Currently sitting three points above the relegation territory, the Clarets chase their fifth PL home triumph (W4, D2, L6) that would drastically increase their chances of avoiding relegation. Although Sean Dyche’s men failed to find the net in all three of their previous H2H meetings with Tottenham at this venue – losing two of them, they can still rely on the fact they’ve managed to pull off two victories in their last three PL home outings (W2, D1). But, Burnley have lost all three of their home clashes with top-six teams this campaign, conceding nine goals while scoring just one in the process.
Meanwhile, encouraged by the potential return of Harry Kane, the visitors come into this meeting looking to stretch a four-game PL winning run. With a ten-point lead over fifth-placed Arsenal, the Spurs seem to be on their way of wrapping up another Champions League promotion. The London giants have entered this round as the only team in the English top tier that is yet to play out a draw after the opening 26 games. Also, no English team has secured more points away from home than Tottenham (33) this term, with Mauricio Pochettino’s men racking up a four-game PL road winning run ahead of this fixture. Furthermore, Tottenham’s tally of 30 goals scored on the road is a league high, with Pochettino’s players bagging 2+ match goals on seven of 13 PL road trips so far.
