Burnley (7-13-6) are coming off a really strong performance on the road against Brighton on the road. They also needed some luck though, as their opponents actually created more chances than them. They sealed the deal with a goal from the penalty spot before conceding a harmless goal for the final 3-1. That was just their first win in their last five (1-1-3) but Burnley have been quite solid lately. They have lost just once in their last nine matches in all competitions (5-1-3). Burnley are sitting at the 15th spot of the league table with 27 points, just three ahead of the relegation zone. They have not been anything special at home (4-6-2) but have lost just once in their last six (4-1-1).
On the other hand, Tottenham (20-6-0) did a terrific job in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16. They were up against Dortmund at home and actually struggled a lot in the first half. But they came back to life in the second half and dominated the match, scoring three goals for a 0-3 win. Last week they beat Leicester by 1-3 at home in the Premier League and have now won four in a row. Tottenham are sitting 3rd in the Premier League with 60 points, five behind Liverpool and Manchester City. They have the best away record in the Premier League (11-2-0), scoring 30 goals and conceding 13. Tottenham have not won their last two away matches but prior to that they had five consecutive wins.
Tottenham won by a slim 0-1 at home when the two teams met in the first round. They are now undefeated in the last nine matches against Burnley (6-0-3). They have also been quite competitive in this venue in the past decade (2-1-3).
Burnley have been really good lately and will surely fight for survival. Tottenham have also been good lately and will also fight in case they can challenge the two top spots. This is going to be a hard match for both teams but Tottenham certainly have what it takes in order to win here.
