Tottenham vs Burnley
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 15 December 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (London).
Mauricio Pochettino once again did a marvellous job in last two fixtures. He rested his star men Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen in last weekend’s league tie with Leicester as Spurs went unharmed to see off the Fixes 0-2 at King Power Stadium. He then sent the strongest line-up possible on Tuesday night against Barcelona to claim a point at Camp Nou. That point sent the team through to the last 16 round of Champions League as Inter failed to beat PSV on the home court in the other fixture of the group.
Spurs are now third in the Premier League ladder and they are just six points shy of leaders Liverpool. They will have a nice opportunity to make it three wins on the spin in the league on Saturday afternoon when strugglers Burnley come to visit the capital.
Tottenham vs Burnley: Head-to-head
Interestingly, Tottenham only lead the head to head tie by a single win coming into their 82nd encounter with Clarets.
Spurs were the dominant force in the most recent H2H history, though.
They won three and drew one of past four meetings with Burnley, a thread which includes a demolishing 0-3 victory in their last face-off at Turf Moor.
Tottenham vs Burnley: Prediction
The visitors ended a three-loss run to escape the red zone last weekend when they dispatched Brighton & Hove Albion 1-0 at Turf Moor. Center-back James Tarkowski made all the difference five minutes before the break on the occasion.
However, Sean Dyche’s men will have a very tough task backing it up away at Tottenham. Burnley were struggling badly to keep things tight at the back of late on travels. They lost three and drew one of past four away games in the league shipping 11 goals along the way.
Clarets failed to find the back of the net in three of past four away matches and we have reasons to expect an entirely one-sided contest for the third-placed team here.
