Spurs needed to remain patient when they took on Sean Dyche's men at Wembley, and Al Hain-Cole is expecting another slow burner at Turf Moor

Tottenham will have the chance to close the gap on top spot when they take on Burnley at Turf Moor in Saturday's Premier League clash.

Mauricio Pochettino's men are currently five points adrift of both Manchester City and Liverpool, who travel to Manchester United on Sunday.

Latest odds

Having won five and lost none of their last seven encounters with this opposition, they are 4/6 (1.67) favourites with William Hill to maintain the pressure on the leaders by coming out on top here.

However, the Clarets are unbeaten in seven league fixtures, and priced at 9/2 (5.50) to extend that run with a shock win.

Three of the hosts' last four games in the league have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 27/10 (3.70) on them claiming another point in this one.

Team news

Aaron Lennon and Jonathan Walters remain long-term absentees, while Steven Defour is also a doubt.

Harry Kane could be set for a surprise return to the squad after recovering ahead of schedule from injury, although Ben Davies, Dele Alli and Vincent Janssen remain sidelined.

Late action

While their recent record against Sean Dyche's men is good, Spurs have certainly had to work hard for the points - needing a 90th minute winner to secure the victory at Wembley back in December.

In fact, six of their seven goals against this opposition have come after the break, and another slow burner looks likely on Saturday.

Having scored just a single first-half goal in their last eight fixtures, the visitors will surely struggle to break down a home defence that has gone four games without conceding in the opening 45 minutes - letting in just two goals before the break in seven matches.

Predictions

All in all, odds of 19/20 (1.95) offer solid value on the majority of goals going in after half-time for Tottenham's sixth match in eight, as well as a fifth meeting in a row with Burnley.

Highest scoring half: second at 19/20 (1.95) for a 2pt stake with William Hill
