The north London side visit the Clarets looking for a fifth straight win in the top flight to keep the pressure on Manchester City and Liverpool

Tottenham pay a visit to Burnley this week looking for three points to help keep them in the Premier League title race. 

Spurs sit five points behind Manchester City and Liverpool and will be confident of doing their part to maintain the pressure on the top contenders.

Sean Dyche's team may be flirting with danger down in the bottom half of the top-flight, but they have put together a run of seven league games without defeat, so they will be no pushovers for Mauricio Pochettino's side.

Match Preview


Sitting five points behind leaders Manchester City and Liverpool, Tottenham are trying to stay in the race for the Premier League title.

The north London side are on a four-game winning streak in the English top-flight, allowing them to make up ground on their rivals.

Pochettino's men should fancy their chances against a side currently 15th in the league, but Burnley have hit a good run of form themselves.

The Clarets are unbeaten in four Premier League matches and are on their longest unbeaten streak since 1966, when they went nine top-flight games without losing.

And Pochettino knows his team cannot take anything for granted, even if they do welcome star forward Harry Kane back into the team this weekend.

“Like always, we're going to find a very aggressive team," the Argentine coach said.

"That's going to be the key – to match their aggresion and challenge in this aspect and then try to impose our way to play. It's going to be tough, we know very well.

"We struggled a little bit to beat them in December. I remember we scored a late goal to break them down in the end, but they did so well against us.

"Now they're in a better period than they were in that game. Always we're confident and trust in ourselves but we know very well that they’re doing well and it's going to be tough to beat them."

Meanwhile, Burnley boss Sean Dyche was also quick to heap praise upon his opponents, as he knows his side are coming up against one of the strongest in the country.

"For me, Tottenham are challenging for the title, along with Manchester City and Liverpool," he told reporters.

"They have very strong individuals, but like us they also have a vey strong team ethic and they are definitely recognised as a front-runner."
