Prediction: Tottenham Hotspur vs Burnley

Prediction: Tottenham Hotspur to win 1-0

Best Odds: 6/1

Bookmaker: Betfair

Tottenham Hotspur and Burnley will face each other in the Premier League this coming weekend. The game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in North London is slated to kick off at 2pm UK time on Sunday.

Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur are not having the best of times in the Premier League at the moment and are in danger of missing out on a place in the top four. Jose Mourinho’s side are as low as ninth in the league table at the moment with 36 points from 24 matches, as many as nine points behind London rivals and fourth-placed West Ham United.

Although Spurs have a game in hand, the way the North London outfit are playing at the moment suggests that they could easily lose that match if it were to be played now. Tottenham actually lost to West Ham away from home at London Stadium in the Premier League this past Sunday, although their performance in the second half was encouraging.

Team News:

Gareth Bale played well against Wolfsberger in the Europa League last week and was quite influential after coming on as a substitute against West Ham this past weekend. The Wales international winger could start against Burnley at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the Premier League this coming Sunday.

Burnley

Burnley are still in danger of going down to the Championship at the end of the season, but Sean Dyche’s side are likely to escape the dreaded drop like they have done in recent seasons. The Clarets are 15th in the Premier League table at the moment with 28 points from 25 matches, six points above the bottom three.

The Clarets will head into the match against Tottenham in North London on the back of a goalless draw with West Bromwich Albion at Turf Moor in the Premier League. It followed a 1-1 draw with Fulham at home in the league which came after a 3-0 victory over Crystal Palace away from home at Selhurst Park in London.

Team News:

Matej Vydra is likely to retain his place in the starting lineup. Jay Rodriguez could also start.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Tottenham Hotspur have scored 37 goals in 24 Premier League games this season.
  • Burnley have scored 18 goals in 25 Premier League games this season.
  • Tottenham Hotspur have conceded 27 goals in 24 Premier League matches this campaign.
  • Burnley have conceded 30 goals in 25 Premier League matches this campaign.
  • Tottenham Hotspur beat Burnley 1-0 at Turf Moor in the Premier League in October 2020.

Conclusion

Burnley will know that they can pick up a win against Tottenham and will prepare for a 1-0 win in North London. However, Mourinho is under pressure, and he knows how to negotiate such games. Spurs should eke out a result.
