There is a massive game in the Premier League at both ends of the league standings. Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to stay in the hunt for a top four finish, while Burnley could move clear of the drop zone with a big victory on the road.
Premier League Preview
This fixture on Sunday at the New Tottenham Hotspur Stadium could have massive ramifications for both Spurs and Burnley. The hosts will need to keep winning to stay in the hunt for a Champions League finish this term, while Burnley are by no means save from the threat of relegation.
Tottenham play their last home game of the season this weekend, and it is a massive must-win game to keep their hopes of a finish in the top four alive. Their home form has been relatively solid throughout the campaign, as they have picked up more wins at home than they have away.
Antonio Conte has done an excellent job since arriving at the club too, and their form since the middle of March has enabled them to remain in a strong position for a Champions League finish. Since defeat against Manchester United, Spurs have lost on just one occasion in eight fixtures.
Burnley will be hoping that their stay in the Premier League doesn’t come to an end this season. They still have a very good chance of staying in the top flight, as they sit 17th and above Leeds United on goal difference. However, their fight will likely go down to the wire as they close the season with fixtures against Aston Villa and Newcastle after this game against Spurs.
Mike Jackson has done a very good job since taking over from Sean Dyche in the middle of April, as the Clarets have lost just once in their last five fixtures. However, that defeat came in the form of a 3-1 loss against Aston Villa last weekend.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Burnley Head to Head
Burnley beat Spurs in the last fixture between the sides in February, as they won 1-0 at Turf Moor. However, that remains their only victory in the previous five matches between the sides.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Burnley Prediction
This looks like a very tall order for Burnley this weekend, and they will likely be playing for a draw in North London. However, I expect them to come up short regarding that goal, and I fancy Spurs to keep their Champions League hopes alive with a win.
