Tottenham vs Burnley
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 7 December 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (London).
After Jose Mourinho’s arrival, Tottenham have certainly raised their levels. They might have lost against Manchester United the last match-day, but it was a close game. This weekend, Spurs will be adamant about taking the three points on offer, and considering they are playing hosts to a Burnley side that have a single win on the road this whole campaign, a win looks very possible for Mourinho’s men.

Tottenham vs Burnley Prediction
Tottenham lost the last match-day on the road. In what was the homecoming for Jose Mourinho at the Old Trafford, his former club Manchester United defeated his current one with a 2-1 scoreline.
Marcus Rashford had found the back of the net early in the 6th minute to take his team ahead 1-0. Later, though Dele Alli did manage to equalize with a wondrous strike, Rashford scored once again to take the lead.
Meanwhile elsewhere, Burnley were defeated by current champions, Manchester City, with a 1-4 scorecard. The former did have the home advantage but still had to bow down to the sheer talent on the pitch assembled by Pep Guardiola.
This weekend, Spurs will be even more focused on a win, considering they faced their first defeat under Mourinho. One more loss and it would be hard to control talks of whether firing Mauricio Pochettino was the right choice.
Moreover, Tottenham do have the home advantage. They are on a five-game unbeaten run in front of the home crowd and have lost only once in their last eight appearances here.
They have also scored two or more goals in six of their prior eight home fixtures, and in overall games, their sole two losses in the prior ten games had come against Manchester United and Liverpool.
On the other hand, Burnley lost five of their last seven overall matches and conceded twice or more in all these five. On the road, they were winless in seven of their last eight fixtures and were so in 11 of their previous 14.
Most importantly, Spurs have been the dominant side in h2h clashes for quite a long time. In fact, Burnley have won just once against this opponent, and at this venue, they have lost every single battle in the last decade, barring one.
Taking these observations into account, rightfully expect Tottenham to deliver a convincing win this weekend.
