Burnley vs Tottenham Match Preview
Sean Dyche’s men were held to a goalless draw on the road the last match-day, by Newcastle. Despite the dropped two points, it was the fourth unbeaten game in a for the team, and the third clean sheet from the prior four fixtures.
This improvement in form have put the squad in a position to challenge for a Champions League ticket. Ten more match-days remain till the end of the season, and the teams above the Clarets have some tough upcoming fixtures.
As such, the future looks bright for the team, if they are able to post points consistently on the board.
In the meantime, Mourinho’s men lost 2-3 at home the prior game week, against Wolves. It was their second PL loss in a row, and it also contributed towards the squad’s current four-match losing run.
Even after the arrival of the ‘Special One’, the Hotspurs are finding it hard to bounce back to form. However, all blame could not be laid on the Portuguese gaffer. He las lost the services of very valuable players due to injury.
Burnley vs Tottenham Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse fixture had ended in a 5-0 win for Jose Mourinho’s men.
- 10 of the former 13 wins had gone to the Spurs as well.

- Since 2004, only twice have the guests delivered victories at this ground.
Burnley vs Tottenham Prediction
As things stand, Dyche’s men seem to be the favorite. They are unbeaten in their last six PL matches on the trot, and had four of those. The team scored two or more goals in four of their last six league matches, and also were unbeaten in four of their previous five home appearances in all competitions.
On the other hand, the Spurs have lost their past four match-ups in a row, and conceded a total of eight goals in the process. Importantly, on the road, the team was winless in 16 of their preceding 20 trips.
And of their total four away wins this season, two had come against recently promoted teams, one was versus a relegation-battler, and the final one had come in opposition to a team from a much inferior league.
As a result, expect the hosts of the day Burnley to emerge victorious at the Turf Moor. However, do note that Mourinho’s men are still in hunt for a spot in the top-most tier, and are still considered to be one of the elites of English Football.
Moreover, they had won the reverse fixture 5-0, and had historically dominated this opponent in h2h clashes. Taking these information into account, it’s expected that Tottenham will score at least once in the game.
