Tottenham Hotspur Starting XI Prediction at Burnley FC



Tottenham Hotspur head to the Turf Moor to take on a Burnley FC side that could present a much tougher challenge than one might think in a match-up of the third place side versus the 15th place team. Burnley have only lost one of their last nine matches across all competitions, and that was to Manchester City, who many currently consider the best team in the world.

Sean Dyche’s side are undefeated in their last seven Premier League fixtures, with their last setback coming on Boxing Day 2018 to Everton. Yet they are still only three points clear of the drop zone right now.


On the other side, Tottenham already have one foot in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals, and a road triumph here brings them just three points off the pace for the top of the table.
