Burnley vs Tottenham prediction, live stream & confirmed lineups

Burnley will jump over Tottenham in the table if they beat Londoners at Turf Moor this weekend.

Indeed, Sean Dyche's team could be a dark horse in the race for last place in the Champions League qualification.

Spurs have now played four games without a win and lost three times in a row before there was a draw against Norwich in the FA Cup on Wednesday – a draw that they ultimately lost on penalties.

Can Jose Mourinho's men stop the Lancashire rotting or will Burnley inflict more misery on their opponents? Read on for our previews, predictions, team news, lineups, live streams and more.

To see one

Burnley: Chris Wood

Wood has been a problem for Spurs in the past and last season's game against Londoners when Burnley fought for a 2-1 win.

The striker is likely to return to the team immediately after fully recovering from an injury. Tottenham's central defenders have to beware of the threat he poses from the air.

Key statistics: Wood has scored two of Burnley's last three league goals against Spurs.

Tottenham: Erik Lamela

Erik Lamela has only been fit enough lately to leave the bench, but his cameos have shown that he is vital as Spurs looks for an answer to their striker problems.

Midweek again, Lamela added urgency and sharpness as he entered. Even if he can only play a role at Burnley in the last half hour, the Argentinian will be central to any Tottenham success.

Key statistics: Lamela has created 1.57 chances per 90 minutes in the Premier League this season, more than regular starters Son Heung-min, Lucas Moura and Dele Alli.

Squawka prediction

It's hard to see how Tottenham wins at the moment. Whenever it looks like they have overcome their attack problems, their defensive deficiencies add another element to their current situation.

The prospect of skipping Spurs in the table should give Burnley enough motivation to take another impressive home win.

Scoreline prediction: Burnley 2-1 Tottenham
