The hosts will have a tough game on their hands this weekend but arrive in decent form to secure at least a point. Tottenham remains possible title contenders this season, but need to secure nothing less than three points from this fixture if they plan on keeping tags on Liverpool and Manchester City. the Clarets proved to be tough opponents when these sides first met as they narrowly lost 1-0 due to a stoppage-time goal.

Burnley had been knocking about down in and around the relegation zone not too long ago, but improved performances have seen them secure important points which have helped them rise into 15th. There is little room for error for Sean Dyche though, as they sit just three points clear of the bottom three.
