Tip Tottenham - Burnley
North London side Tottenham Hotspur has had tough moments in recent league matches and will be desperate to stop the bad run when they welcome Burnley. Spurs go to this game placed ninth on 36 points while Burnley have 28 points, in 15th place. In the first week of December, Tottenham beat Arsenal and went top of the league, but 13 matches later, they’re closer to the bottom half after seven losses. They are coming from a big win in Europa League but that will not count for much here, against a well-rested Burnley side. One of the key areas to be addressed by Jose Mourinho is the defence, with Spurs having managed just two clean sheets in 12 matches. They have one win and five losses in the last six league matches and their only clean sheet in that run came against West Brom. The team has failed to score in three of the last five league matches and returned one win in the last four at home. It has been below average for Spurs at home, with five wins in the last 12 this season, and as a result, they are seven points below the Europa League slots.
Burnley on the other hand go to this game having drawn their last two matches, placing them six points above the relegation zone. A low scoring season it has been so far for Burnley, yet again, and with 18 goals, their tally is only better than bottom placed Sheffield’s. However, their low-lying block defending strategy has worked well, keeping scores low in their matches and trust Sean Dyche to have a plan for handling Spurs forwards. While they have scored more than once in just one of the last six league matches, Burnley have conceded twice in just one of the last five in the league. They head here with one win in the last seven matches across all competitions, but are unbeaten in four league games, with two clean sheets therein. Burnley lost 1-0 in the October meeting between these two sides, that being the fifth time in seven meetings that the teams’ meetings have ended in under 2.5 goals.
