Burnley vs Tottenham
English Premier League
Date: Monday, 26 October 2020
Kick-off at 21:00 UK/ 22:00 CET
Venue: Turf Moor.
Spurs are easily one of the best teams this season in the competition, and owing to the troubles faced by some of the usual title-contenders, they do have a great prospect to end up champions at the end of the campaign. As of now, only toppers Everton should prove to be a major roadblock in that regards.
However, there are reports that star player James Rodriguez is injured for the Toffees, and if so, this is the right time to strike for Jose Mourinho’s men. They already have scored the most number of goals of all the teams in the league, and also have remained unbeaten except for their loss against Everton.
And as a further blessing, they are pitted against the Clarets this Monday, who are one of the worst squads in the PL at present.
Sean Dyche’s men have lost all but one of their games so far, and the only match-up where they avoided defeat was a draw against West Brom – a team that was newly promoted, and who also are possibly the absolute worst team in the tournament at present.
Going on, Spurs also have a healthy h2h record against this rival over the years.
Likely, expect Tottenham to post a good win at the Turf Moor.
Burnley vs Tottenham: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Mourinho’s men have recorded seven of the previous eight overall wins.
- The latest h2h victory had a scoreline of 5-0, in their favor.
- The hosts have a single league win at this stadium since 2010.
- In the past 16 years, only once have the visitors failed to score at this venue.
Burnley vs Tottenham: Prediction
The Clarets recorded a 0-0 draw the last match-day on the road against West Brom. In the mean time, Spurs recorded a 3-3 draw at home the past game week, against West Ham.
Dyche’s men were winless in ten of their previous twelve overall games, and the two wins in this stretch had come against teams in the lower division. And at home, they have posted two wins since January, and once again both these victories had come against teams from lower rungs of English football.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a ten-fixture unbeaten run (eight of these were wins), and they also remained unbeaten in 19 of their preceding 21 fixtures. On the road, they are on a four-match winning run, and in the process, they had scored a total of 16 goals.
In addition, they also have a spectacular h2h record against this opponent over the years.
By all means, expect a winning performance from Tottenham this game week.
