The Lilywhites will be looking to bounce back from the humiliation they suffered in the hands of Manchester City when they confront the Clarets

Turf Moor hosts a crucial game between Burnley and Tottenham Hotspur in the English Premier League on Saturday evening.

Sean Dyche’s men are in sixth spot in the table with 32 points from 18 duels – one point above their visitors and will be looking to truly prove their superiority when they clash.

The Clarets have been impressive lately. Though they shared the spoils with Brighton and Hove Albion last time out, they have won their last two duels.

However, when faced with stronger oppositions they falter. This season, they have lost against Manchester City, Arsenal and rejuvenated Leicester City. They will thus be coming into this tie as underdogs at odds of (7.00) with Bet365.

Both sides have met 80 times and 20 of the meetings ended in a deadlock while they also share equal wins of 30. Therefore, a draw will not be out of place as the same betting firm is offering (4.00) for a no-winner, no vanquish outcome.

Tottenham’s aim of winning the title might as well be over as they are 21 points adrift of league leaders – Manchester City. However, there chances of making the top-four finish are still alive provided they can re-ignite the form that saw them unbeaten in eight of their first nine league games this term.

Though they were thrashed by City last weekend, Mauricio Pochettino’s side will be expected to come out on top in the clash at the price of (1.50) with the bookmakers.

The Lancashire outfit have failed to score in three of their last six outings. The betting firm is offering (1.66) for both sides NOT to find the back of the net.

A lot of goals will not be expected here, going by their last four meetings which only produced seven goals. Odds of (1.75) is available for under 2.5 goals.

Harry Kane has notched 12 goals in the league this season. The Englishman is on offer at (1.80) to increase his tally anytime with Bet365.
