Premier League – Burnley-Tottenham Hotspur
Burnley faces Tottenham Hotspur at the Turf Moor in a match from the 29th round of the Premier League. Let’s preview it right now.
Burnley are having a solid season so far. Sean Dyche’s team is comfortbaly sitting at 9th place in the standings with 38 points, which is giving Burnley the opportunity to enjoy a calm end of the season – they are not really in a trouble in terms of survival.
Burnley’s current shape is pretty good because the team is unbeaten in its last five matches in the league, winning three of them. This means that Sean Dyche’s team is going to be a pretty tough opponent for Tottenham on Saturday, especially at the Turf Moor.
Tottenham Hotspur are still in the race for a Top 5 finish and a Champions League qualification, which is now possible because of Manchester City’s suspension. Spurs are currently 7th with 40 points, which is two points less than the 5th Manchester United. They still have a chance.
What’s worrying for Spurs and their manager Jose Mourinho is the fact that Tottenham are performing dissapointing in their last four matches. They lost three consecutive times in the Premier League and the Champions League before being eliminated by the struggling Norwich City at the FA Cup on Wednesday.
It’s clear that Spurs are not in a position to be competitive at the moment. It’s expected that the manager Jose Mourinho is going to make a huge overhaul of the squad in the summer. But right now these are the players he must work with. The injuries of Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min are not helping either.
These are our thoughts about the Premier League game between Burnley and Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday. We actually favour the hosts here because of their superior form compared to Jose Mourinho’s team.
