Tottenham will attempt to break their Wembley-hoodoo when they host Burnley at their new home on Sunday. Spurs started the season with a decent 2-0 win at Newcastle, but last weekend, they lost 2-1 to champions Chelsea at Wembley.
Spurs need to start winning at their new home before it becomes a thing for them. Another failure to win at Wembley on Sunday will surely put unnecessary pressure on the title-chasing side this early in the season. Ahead of the game, the visitors find themselves level on points with their hosts, but they would consider themselves fortunate to get anything out of this game. Harry Kane is yet to score a league goal in August but Spurs would be hoping for him to break his duck on Sunday.
The Clarets were terrible on the road last season and managed only four points on their travels over the course of the season. They started the season with a shocking 3-2 win at champions Chelsea, but they were aided by two red cards in that game. The following weekend, they lost 1-0 at home to West Brom, but they go back to winning ways with a 2-0 League Cup win over arch-rivals Blackburn Rovers in the midweek. Since the defeat to the Baggies last weekend, Chris Wood has arrived in a club-record deal from Leeds Utd, and he is expected to make his league debut against Spurs.
Last season, Spurs did a double over the Clarets and won the corresponding fixture 2-1. However, that game was played at their old stadium White Hart Lane.
