What Trueform says for Tottenham vs Burnley
Tottenham are still very much in the Premier League title race and are a class apart from Burnley, judged on our Trueform ratings.
The Clarets snapped an eight-match winless run when edging out Brighton at Turf Moor, but taking on one of the top three will obviously be much tougher.
Sean Dyche’s side have failed to score in three of their last four away games, so 4/5 for Spurs to win to nil at Wembley is our first Tottenham vs Burnley prediction.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Tottenham secured a relatively smooth 2-0 success at Leicester, despite partially resting Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen ahead of their crunch Champions League trip to Barcelona.
Son Heung-min’s fine opener just before the interval and Dele Alli’s second-half header left Spurs six points off the summit.
Regarding the changes made, Mauricio Pochettino said: “We believe and trust in the squad and how important all the players are.
“There’s no point players playing every three days. It’s not healthy, they need to rest and need some time to breathe.”
Pochettino may again shuffle his pack four days after the crucial draw at Camp Nou, but that shouldn’t affect their desire to stay in the title race.
Looking at the Tottenham vs Burnley odds, we reckon 23/4 for another 2-0 domestic triumph takes the eye.
Last Tottenham EPL line-up: Lloris, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Aurier, Davies, Winks, Dier, Sissoko, Alli, Lucas Moura, Son.
Tottenham will assess a host of players, as Kieran Tripper, Serge Aurier (both groin), Davinson Sanchez and Juan Foyth (hamstring) have all been struggling in recent weeks.
Mousa Dembele (ankle) and Victor Wanyama (knee) miss out, but Jan Vertonghen returns from his Premier League ban.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
Burnley had picked up just one point in seven matches prior to shading Brighton, thanks to James Tarkowski’s slightly fortuitous 40th-minute strike.
The 26-year-old got on the scoresheet when Jack Cork hit a shot and the ball went in off the centre-back’s chest, while he was also key late on as the hosts stood firm in the face of Albion pressure.
“It’s a huge win and so important,” Tarkowski told the club website. “You can see how hard the lads were working at the end there and the desire they were showing to keep that clean sheet.
“It’s a great day all round and it’s important to be out of the bottom three.”
However, the Clarets have had their limitations exposed by big clubs this term, losing to both Manchester teams, Chelsea and Liverpool by an aggregate score of 14-1.
Burnley have at least been hard to break down before half-time in the last three of those fixtures, though, trailing 1-0 at the interval twice and drawing 0-0 versus the Reds.
Let’s add 5/2 for Spurs to lead by a single goal at the break to our Tottenham vs Burnley betting tips.
Last Burnley line-up: Hart, Taylor, Tarkowski, Mee, Bardsley, Cork, Gudmundsson, Brady, Westwood, Barnes, Wood.
Steven Defour (calf) and Johann Berg Gudmundsson (hamstring) are both highly doubtful for Burnley, while defender Stephen Ward (knee) and goalkeeper Nick Pope (shoulder) both remain sidelined.
Barcelona 1-1 TOTTENHAM – Lucas Moura
