Burnley would be far from underdogs when they host Tottenham at Turf Moor on Saturday.
Ahead of Spurs’ trip, the Clarets find themselves a point and a place better than their opponents. The hosts currently occupy the sixth spot with 32 points, and they could further improve their league position with a win on Saturday.
The Clarets have picked up seven points from their last three games, and last weekend, they claimed a goalless draw at Brighton.
Spurs find themselves in the seventh spot, and they can’t afford to drop any more points in the race for top-four places. They could only manage a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture at Wembley Stadium, and the game at Moor would be an even bigger hurdle for them.
The North London side have managed just two wins in their last seven league games, and last weekend, they were embarrassed by Manchester City at Etihad Stadium.
After competing for the league title last season, Spurs have been underwhelming this season, and they must quickly improve their form if they want to stay in contention for the European places.
Last season, Spurs claimed a double over the Clarets, and the corresponding fixture ended in a 0-2 win for them.
