Tottenham boosted their chance of Champions League qualification on Thursday with a 3-0 win over bitter rivals, and closest competitors for fourth spot, Arsenal. It was an accomplished performance from Spurs but they still need to hope Arsenal drop further points in order to finish in the top four.
A tie against relegation threatened Burnley probably isn’t the ideal game for Antonio Conte and his side, and they will be expecting Burnley to fight for everything when the whistle is blown on Sunday.
At home, Spurs have been in great form with a single loss to Brighton stopping them from having a perfect record over the last six games at The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
This has been a relatively low scoring fixture in recent years but this should be a different type of match with both teams, although being at opposite ends of the tabel, needing to claim as many points as possible.
Tottenham have two of the top four scorers in the league, in Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son, and they come into the game as favourites but Burnley have found the knack of picking up points since appointing Mike Jackson as caretaker boss and shouldn’t be underestimated.

Tottenham vs Burnley: Match Stats
Tottenham have won five of their last six games at home, but have kept just one clean sheet in that time (in their 3-0 win over Arsenal earlier this week). They’ve scored 14 times in that period though, five of those from Heung-Min Son.
Burnley saw their resurgence come to an end last weekend, Aston Villa beating them 3-1 and ending their run of three straight wins. Burnley have put themselves in a great position to escape the drop with that run but are only outside the drop zone on goal difference.

Tottenham have the better of recent meetings between the two sides but Burnley did come out on top earlier this season at Turf Moor. Ben Mee was the scorer that day and takes on an assistant manager role for this game under caretaker, Mike Jackson.
