Tottenham Hotspurs vs Burnley

BURNLEY have lost to Tottenham Hotspur just before Christmas in each of their last three Premier League seasons – and the four-timer looks very much on the cards this weekend.

At White Hart Lane twice, each time 2-1, and Turf Moor between December 18 and 23 have Spurs helped to spoil the Clarets’ festive period and it is now expected to happen at Wembley.

In fairness, Burnley did leave the national stadium with a point when they visited in August 2017 and, as the stats above reveal, they have a good record of scoring goals away to Tottenham.

But Sean Dyche’s side simply do not appear to be in good enough form at present to grab anything more than a consolation goal against a team who are back into the Premier League title race after Manchester City’s defeat last weekend.

Spurs have lost at home to the two clubs above them in the table, but every other Premier League visitor to their temporary home this season has been sent away defeated.

Back in north London next weekend at the Emirates Stadium, Burnley have a much more favourable run of fixtures after Christmas and it’s in those that they have a better chance of gaining the points they need to boost their prospects of avoiding a relegation dogfight over the remainder of the campaign.

Prediction: Home win
