Tottenham vs Burnley 2018/19 Match Preview

Tottenham may have done the almost unthinkable on Tuesday night when they managed to qualify for the Round of 16 in the Champions League. Admittedly it may have needed a huge favour from PSV in which to do so, but at the same time this should take nothing away from the effort that Mauricio Pochettino’s men gave in Barcelona.

With that task now complete the focus switches back to domestic matters now as they prepare for the visit of Burnley on Saturday afternoon, a fixture that also gives them the perfect opportunity to turn the screw on their London rivals Arsenal and Chelsea.

With those aforementioned clubs both playing on Sunday then it means that Tottenham could extend the gap in third while also a win would see them just three points off of Liverpool, without getting too far ahead of ourselves this could be a pivotal fixture.

Sean Dyche’s Burnley will be looking to build on the win that they picked up over Brighton last weekend, one that saw them climb out of the bottom three. However, the trip to Wembley will undoubtedly prove to be a tougher task altogether.

Tottenham will be looking to make sure there is no European hangover and all the metrics above see Tottenham by far the favourites, Burnley drew here last season and will be hoping that it is a day where once again the numbers don’t mean a great deal

Tottenham vs Burnley 2018/19 Match Preview Prediction: Tottenham Win
