Tottenham are playing with great confidence at present and that will stand them in good stead when visiting a Burnley outfit short on self-belief.
Jose Mourinho has a whole host of attacking options to call on and Spurs have scored a whopping 19 goals in their last four Premier League and Europa League outings.
Let’s go with 27/20 for an away win and over 2.5 goals in the game for our initial Burnley vs Tottenham prediction.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
Burnley picked up their first point of the season at the fourth attempt when drawing 0-0 at West Brom last Monday.
Chris Wood hit the bar late on at The Hawthorns but a stalemate was generally regarded as a fair result, with Nick Pope denying Grady Diangana and Matheus Pereira at the other end.
Sean Dyche insists he is not pressing any panic buttons and said: “You’re not always as far away as you think and we just have to get on the right side of those margins.
“I’m aware it is a season’s work and it always has been for us. The minimum requirement is around the 38 to 40-point mark and then we build on top of that.”
The Clarets have gradually been getting some influential players back from injury and Matt Lowton is in contention to return here after an ankle problem.
However, things just don’t seem to be falling for the Lancashire outfit on the field of play at the moment.
Last Burnley line-up: Pope, Taylor, Tarkowski, Pieters, Long, Gudmundsson, Brownhill, McNeil, Westwood, Wood, Barnes.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Tottenham suffered a dramatic late collapse when sharing the spoils against West Ham in their last Premier League match, letting slip a 3-0 lead in the final 10 minutes.
However, that was seen as just a blip in an otherwise hot streak of results which began with a 7-2 thrashing of Maccabi Haifa and an incredible 6-1 romp at Manchester United.
Spurs returned to winning ways with a smooth 3-0 success versus LASK Linz in the Europa League on Thursday, despite Mourinho making a number of changes.
Gareth Bale and Carlos Vinicius were given their first starts and played a part in all the goals, while Lucas Moura has now scored in his last three appearances in the starting XI.
Mourinho said: “The boys took it seriously – from the first minute you could see they were not here to have fun, we were here to take it professionally.
“If you watch LASK play in their league and in the qualifiers, they are not easy at all, but the boys made it look easy because they took it always seriously.”
In-form front man Son Heung-min wrapped up the scoring after coming off the bench and has netted nine times in the last six games.
Last Spurs EPL line-up: Lloris, Reguilon, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Aurier, Hojbjerg, Sissoko, Ndombele, Son, Kane, Bergwijn.
