The hosts are in fine form but our tipster thinks that the visitors could prove their worth when they travel to Turf Moor on Saturday evening

Tottenham Hotspur face a testing trip to Turf Moor to face Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday evening.

Spurs suffered a heavy 4-1 defeat against Manchester City last weekend and Mauricio Pochettino will be keen to see his side make an immediate return to winning ways when they line up against the Clarets.

Match odds

Tottenham, though, have won just one of their last seven matches away from home - a 2-1 win against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League - while Spurs have collected just one point from a possible 15 in their last five league matches on the road; nevertheless, dabblebet go just 4/7 (1.57) that Spurs pick up all three points here - a result that would see Pochettino's team leapfrog the Clarets in the Premier League standings.

Burnley have been hugely impressive in recent weeks, particularly on their own patch, and have been beaten in just one of their last seven home fixtures while conceding just two goals in those games.

It is a run of form that has Burnley fans dreaming of European football being played at Turf Moor next term, with the Clarets currently sitting in sixth place in the Premier League; dabblebet offer 11/2 (6.50) that Dyche's side open up a four-point advantage over seventh-placed Spurs with a win this weekend, while the same firm go 3/1 (4.0) that both teams settle for a share of the spoils.

Can the Clarets stifle Spurs?

Remarkably, Burnley have scored just 16 Premier League goals so far this season - less than one goal per game on average - and significantly fewer than any other team in the top half of the table, but it is in defence that the Clarets excel for no team in the top flight has conceded fewer goals than Dyche's well-drilled side this season.

Just one of Burnley's last nine matches has produced more than two goals and, so, it is little surprise that dabblebet offer just 3/4 (1.75) that there are fewer than three goals scored on this occasion; the Clarets have kept a clean sheet in six of their last eight league matches at home and the odds compilers offer 15/4 (4.75) that Burnley shut out Spurs on Saturday night.

Spurs have scored in 10 of their 12 matches away from home in all competitions this season and despite their recent dip in form on the road, they will be confident of making a mark and, indeed, dabblebet offer just 2/13 (1.15) that Pochettino's team are on target at Turf Moor.

Both teams to score?

There have been goals at both ends in just one of the last 10 matches that the Clarets have contested, but Spurs have both scored and conceded in each of their last four away fixtures.

As such, dabblebet offer 21/20 (2.05) that both teams are on target in this match; the previous meeting between the teams ended in a 1-1 draw at Wembley, while both teams have scored in six of the last eight renewals of this rivalry.

Tips and predictions

Burnley's remarkable defensive discipline has served them well this season, but their lack of firepower will surely be a cause for concern for Dyche ahead of Spurs' visit; with Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen both in fine form, Pochettino's men certainly pack a punch and it is that additional quality in the final third that may give the visitors the edge this weekend.

It is dabblebet's 5/4 (2.25) quote, therefore, for Tottenham Hotspur to win to nil that could provide punters with a viable path to profit ahead of Saturday's showdown at Turf Moor; the selection would have landed in seven of Spurs' 10 wins in domestic competition thus far this term.
