Burnley Prediction

Burnley have staged something of a recovery in recent times as Sean Dyche’s men have put together a very useful and much needed run of games without defeat as they’ve recorded wins over West Ham, Huddersfield Town, Fulham and Brighton as well as points picked up in draws with Watford, Manchester United and Southampton.

A seven match sequence without defeat has helped move Burnley away from immediate relegation danger although they hold only a three point cushion over third from bottom club Southampton, so The Clarets are by no means out of the woods yet.

Yet again though, we’ve seen how Burnley as a club didn’t panic and sack manager Dyche even though the hosts started the season in poor fashion as they lost four of their first five league matches of the season (whilst juggling Europa League duties), and they are now reaping the rewards again with Dyche at the helm.

Burnley possess a home record of 4-2-6 15/22 and still requires further attention but they’ve suffered just one defeat from their last five matches on home turf which was a heavy 5-1 loss to Everton back on Boxing Day.

Forwards Barnes (7 goals) and Wood (6 goals) lead the way for the hosts up front.


Key-Facts – Burnley v Tottenham

  • Burnley have put together a 7-match unbeaten run overall in the EPL
  • Burnley have lost just 1 of their last 5 matches at Turf Moor in the EPL
  • Tottenham possess the best away record in the Premier League


Tottenham Prediction

Tottenham’s recent four-match winning streak has helped move the North London club to within five points of both Manchester City and Liverpool with Mauricio Pochettino’s side still in the hunt for the league title as they make their way up to Burnley this Saturday.

Recent wins against Fulham, Watford, Newcastle United and Leicester City were all matches that Spurs were expected to win, but they did so without the services of leading goalscorer Harry Kane (14 goals) who is in line to return to the squad for this match, but may have to settle for a place on the bench.

The visitors have also won their last four away matches on the trot too with wins at Leicester City, Everton, Cardiff City and Fulham, all of whom have been inconsistent at home, but Tottenham will face an ever-improving and stubborn Burnley outfit in this lunchtime clash on Saturday.

Nevertheless, Tottenham possess the best away record in the Premier League which stands at 11-0-2 30/13 which includes six clean sheets on their travels, but Tottenham have beaten the -1 asian handicap line in just 5 of their 13 away matches so far this season.

Betting Tips Verdict

Although Tottenham are expected to run out winners at Turf Moor, I believe Burnley will give them a good run for their money here and their recent upturn in form and results should see Burnley avoid a heavy defeat here – if they lose at all.
