EPL - Tottenham vs Burnley Match Preview and Prediction

Both of these Premier League clubs are in need of a win, Tottenham are chasing Champions League football while Burnley are fighting for their top-flight status. The two sides go head-to-head at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on the 15th of May in Sunday's lunchtime kick-off.

Under 2.5 goals have been produced in four of the last five meetings between these two clubs and we're predicting another tight and tense 90-minutes on Sunday. Three of Tottenham's last five outings in the Premier League have witnessed fewer than three goals scored and the same can be said for four of Burnley's last six matches.

Tottenham have won four of their last six head-to-heads with Burnley in all competitions and the hosts are big favourites to win against them this weekend. Spurs have managed to keep clean sheets in each of those victories and we expect Conte's men to look strong at the back once again on Sunday. The hosts have won three of their last six league games and have kept clean sheets in three of those fixtures, while Burnley have lost two of their last matches.

Both teams are desperate to win this weekend

On Thursday night, Tottenham played host to their local rivals Arsenal in what was a must-win North London derby for the home side. Harry Kane converted a 22nd-minute penalty to give Spurs the lead and not long after, Arsenal were reduced to 10-men when Holding picked up his second yellow card of the half. Kane stooped low to head the ball over the line from a yard out to make it 2-0 before the break and early in the second forty-five, Son hit home a third to wrap up a 3-0 victory.
