Burnley vs Tottenham
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 23 February 2019
Kick-Off at 12:30 UK / 13:30 CET
Venue: Turf Moor (Burnley).
Tottenham took advantage of the easier schedule to pick up four wins on the spin and join the battle for the Premier League title.
The Spurs are now just five points shy of joint leaders Manchester City and Liverpool, but they (much like the Reds) have a game in hand on the reigning champions, meaning it0s potentially just two points between them and the Citizens.
Mauricio Pochettino can be thrilled with such an impressive winning thread as it came without the help of his two main stars Harry Kane and Dele Alli.
Son Heung-Min, Christian Eriksen & others thus proved they can do the job as Spurs are obviously not so reliant on their top scorer.
Can they keep the splendid form going and make it five wins on the trot on Saturday afternoon when they travel to Turf Moor to battle Burnley in the first game of the day?
Burnley vs Tottenham: Head-to-head
Matches with Burnley were not too big of a challenge for Spurs in most recent history.
Tottenham won five and drew two of past seven ties with Clarets and they are unbeaten in last nine meetings against Burnley.
Burnley only scored one goal in last four H2H encounters with Spurs.
Burnley vs Tottenham: Prediction
Clarets had a turbulent campaign in this term of the Premier League. A poor run of form before the festive period in December even brought them down to the red zone. They are still just three points above Southampton in the danger area and need to work hard to secure another top flight season next term.
They will, however, enter this in high spirits following a super important 1-3 victory away at Brighton & Hove Albion two weeks ago. It was a massive confidence-boosting victory which came after four straight winless affairs across competitions.
Turf Moor used to be a fortress to conquer in past seasons, but Burnley have a miserable record of six defeats in twelve home ties in this term.
Given Tottenham will enter the match off the back of four successive Premier League wins as well as a 3-0 thumping of Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, we can’t but go for the away win as the main betting call here.
