Burnley vs Tottenham Hotspur Preview

Saturday’s Premier League action kicks off at Turf Moor, where Burnley take on Tottenham Hotspur.

The Clarets are unbeaten in seven league games and ended a run of three straight draws with victory at Brighton and Hove Albion last time out.

They go in to the game in fifteenth place – three points clear of the bottom three and will climb to thirteenth place, above Brighton and Crystal Palace if they avoid defeat.

Manager Sean Dyche could recall Robbie Brady and or Johann Berg Gudmunsson, who have both recovered from their respective muscle problems that kept them out of that win on the south coast two weeks ago though Steven Defour remains sidelined with a calf injury.

Chris Wood can be backed at 10.0 (9/1) to open the scoring, ahead of 11.0 (10/1) chance Peter Crouch.

The home win is as highly priced as the 6.0 (5/1) on offer from Betfair, who have the draw at 3.1 (31/10). The visitors are favourites at 1.68 (13/19) with Unibet.

Spurs’ victory over Leicester City last time out in the league was their fourth in succession, while they are still yet to draw this season.

Another triumph here will take them to within two points of both leaders Manchester City, who face Chelsea in the EFL Cup final this weekend and Liverpool who are at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

Harry Kane could be involved after missing the last six weeks with an ankle injury, while Ben Davies is also in contention to return after a spell on the sidelines though Danny Rose is doubtful with an illness and Dele Alli remains out.

Son Heung-min is 5.0 (4/1) to get the first goal of the game with a number of firms, with Christian Eriksen a 9.0 (8/1) chance.

Eriksen scored the only goal of the game in stoppage time when the sides met at Wembley back in December while Spurs also won without conceding in last season’s corresponding fixture so you may tempted to back the away win to nil at 3.05 (39/19) with Unibet.
