Tottenham welcome Burnley to London in a crucial match for both teams. As Spurs try to achieve their ambitions of finishing in the top four, the visitors make a valiant effort to avoid relegation.

The match will take place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, where local supporters may not be too keen to see their heroes after their recent dismal performance that left the London team in fifth place with little hope of qualifying for the Champions League next year.

Tottenham

After a great start with Ange Postecoglou at the helm, taking Spurs to an impressive ten-round unbeaten run, Tottenham surprisingly dropped their game in the last few games. Despite beating Manchester United, Newcastle and Aston Villa and drawing with current champions Manchester City, Spurs may have to settle for fifth place.

Four successive defeats in the Premier League have left Ange Postecoglou and his players under intense criticism, with the Greek-born Australian manager’s seat starting to falter. Although his attacking line-up worked for most of the season and produced some of the Premier League’s most memorable games, poor defending cost the team in the latter rounds. It all started in mid-April when a 4-0 defeat to Newcastle was seen as an expected fall after an impressive run of twelve games in which Tottenham lost a few. However, the difficult schedule brought matches against Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool, ultimately causing Spurs to drop to 5th in the standings after losing all of these encounters.

Furthermore, the home side’s defensive problems were evident in the North London derby, as bitter rivals Arsenal led 3–0 before half-time. Spurs managed to save their pride by scoring twice in the second half, but an unlikely comeback was difficult to achieve.

It was a feeling of deja vu at Anfield as Tottenham fell behind after a nightmare first half, with the Reds leading 4-0 on the hour mark. Despite scoring twice in the last 30 minutes of the match, Spurs fans were furious after witnessing another dreadful performance from their favorites.

Team news

Despite a few starters being unavailable to play against Burnley, Ange Postecoglou has enough quality in the squad to field a strong formation. An all-out attacking game is expected from the hosts, who cannot afford another misstep in the top 4 race.

Burnley

Although they have made great progress this season, Burnley are still struggling to compete in the Premier League. With Sheffield United already relegated, Luton and Burnley are fighting to stay alive against Nottingham Forest and will face an uphill battle for the rest of the season.

Vincent Company and his side managed just four points from their opening thirteen rounds as they failed to quickly adapt to the pace and intensity of the Premier League. However, the visitors’ schedule was terrible, dropping points against the elite teams of Manchester City, Tottenham, Newcastle, Aston Villa and Chelsea in the first part of the season.

The hosts struggled to build a rhythm until March but have recently had a fantastic run of just two defeats in the previous nine rounds. Some of the most recent notable performances to keep Burnley alive include draws against Chelsea, West Ham and Manchester United.

However, the loss to Newcastle at home in front of their supporters (1-4) was the outcome that significantly reduced their chances of survival. Burnley will drop out with two games remaining and five points behind safety if they lose to Tottenham.

Team news

Vincent Kompany can field his best formation against Tottenham, with all his key players available for action. However, the young Belgian coach will have to address ongoing defensive issues which will be re-examined by Spurs’ attacking prowess.

Important factors to consider

  • Tottenham have dropped their level recently by losing their last four Premier League games
  • The hosts are 5th in the standings with minimal chances of overtaking Aston Villa in 4th place
  • Burnley need a miracle to avoid relegation and a win at Tottenham to keep their hopes alive
  • The visitors lost at home to Tottenham in the first half of the season (2-5 final score)

Conclusion

Burnley and Tottenham are locked in a high-stakes match that could have a decisive outcome for both teams. While Burnley wants to stay in the Premier League, Spurs want to compete in the Champions League next year. We expect a win for Tottenham that will ease the pressure on Ange Postecoglou and his team, and goals from both sides.

Verdict: Tottenham wins & BTTS
