Tottenham v Burnley: Prediction, Tips and Odds

Four straight defeats has all but ended Tottenham’s top-four aspirations but Spurs still need victories if they are to keep Newcastle at bay in the battle for fifth.

Ange Postecoglou’s side trail fourth-placed Villa by seven points, albeit one of their final three games is in hand, while they hold a four-point cushion over fast-finishing Newcastle.

With plenty still at stake, Spurs have to stop the rot quickly, but they face a Burnley team that are also desperate for points for very different reasons on Saturday.

Relegation is looking increasingly likely for the Clarets, who are five points adrift of safety with two games to go, although their final match of the season does come at home to fourth-bottom Nottingham Forest.

That means motivation for victory in the capital will be at a maximum and that should lend itself to an entertaining encounter.

Tottenham v Burnley betting tips and predictions

Tottenham to win & both teams to score - 21/20

Tottenham’s four-game losing sequence is of some concern but they’ve faced Newcastle, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool in that run, so the fixtures have been tricky.

It was a no-show from Spurs away at Newcastle and Chelsea but they put in a strong second-half display at home to title-chasing rivals Arsenal, giving the Gunners a scare in a 3-2 defeat having once trailed 3-0.

Postecoglou’s men did similar against Liverpool last weekend, going 4-0 down at Anfield before showing some fight and bringing the scoreline back to 4-2.

Having conceded 13 goals across those four defeats, defensive areas are evidently a concern for Spurs, who have managed only one clean sheet in their last 18 league games.

However, their attacking talent is clear to see and they’ve been especially lethal at home, having won 12 of their 17 league games at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and scoring 36 goals.

Spurs were emphatic 5-2 winners at Burnley earlier in the season and they have won all six of their current meetings with bottom-four clubs this term.

They should bolster that tally against Burnley, who have won only three of their 18 away games this season and must respond to a 4-1 hammering at home to Newcastle last weekend.

However, the Clarets have started to find their shooting boots in recent months and both teams have scored in eight of their last nine league matches.

With the net having also bulged at both ends in 15 of Tottenham’s 17 home league games, taking a home win and both teams to score could be the way to go. 

Heung-Min Son to score two or more - 3/1

There should be a glut of goals in this game, just as there was in the reverse fixture at Turf Moor when Heung-Min Son scored a hat-trick to inspire Spurs to a 5-2 victory.

The South Korean international has 17 Premier League goals this season and remains the focal point of Tottenham’s attack, which is why he should get plenty of chances to bolster his tally against this Burnley backline.

Son is 8/11 to score at any time, which makes plenty of appeal given he has netted in recent meetings with Arsenal and Liverpool, but it could be worth chancing him to score two or more at 3/1.

Josh Cullen to be booked - 2/1

Given what is on the line for both sides, a few bookings can be expected and Burnley midfielder Josh Cullen looks a likely card candidate.

Cullen will have an important role to play in trying to retrieve possession and the Irish international has been prone to collecting cards, having been booked eight times in the Premier League this season.

Three of those bookings have come in his last seven Premier League starts, which includes their latest away trip at Manchester United, and he may struggle to escape the referee’s attention at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
