Spurs are another side this season that have, so far, failed to impress. Bar a handful of players, namely Harry Kane and last week’s matchwinner Christian Eriksen, Mauricio Pochettino’s side have flattered to deceive; comfortably beaten by Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea in the last few months, and with little sign of a consolidated revival. They will, however, fancy their chances against the newly promoted Burnley, who sit precariously one point above the relegation zone.
Last week’s 1-0 win over the high-flying Southampton will have been a huge boost for Sean Dyche’s side, who had Tom Heaton to thank for the three points, the England man saving well from Dušan Tadić’s second half penalty.
However, with just one win on their travels this season, the chances of Burnley securing points against a Spurs side with their backs to the wall, eager to show their worth, are certainly slim.
Prediction: Tottenham 4-1 Burnley
