Sean Dyche’s men have struggled this season and have a daunting task ahead of them. They are currently 15th in the league table, and are just three points above the relegation zone.
Burnley, however, have not lost a single league game in their last seven outings and their last game ended in a 3-1 win against Brighton at the Amex Stadium.
Spurs, on the other hand, have an outside chance to clinch the league title. The north London outfit are merely five points behind Liverpool and Manchester City.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side are in good form, having hammered Borussia Dortmund in their last game. With some important players returning from injury soon, the club are in a pretty good position.
The upcoming clash promises to be an exciting affair owing to the different needs of the two sides. Burnley will look to steer themselves away from the drop zone, while the Lilywhites will be desperate to keep up with Liverpool and Manchester City.
