For our Tottenham vs Burnley prediction, we're opting for a 1-1 draw in this Premier League game.
Fresh from an enthralling North London derby victory, Tottenham Hotspur continue their top-four pursuit with their final home game of the Premier League season against Burnley on Sunday lunchtime. The Lilywhites ran out 3-0 winners over Arsenal on Thursday night, while the Clarets most recently went down 3-1 away to Aston Villa.
For the hosts, a victory will earn them at least a temporary elevation to fourth place having convincingly downed rivals Arsenal in Thursday’s north London derby. The Gunners travel to Newcastle on Monday. A draw will take the wind out of Spurs’ sails with a defeat potentially ending their hopes of reaching the Champions League altogether.
Despite being massive underdogs, Burnley know any result would pour massive pressure on 18th-placed Leeds, who face Brighton shortly after this clash in north London.
Under 2.5 goals have been produced in four of the last five meetings between these two clubs and we're predicting another tight and tense 90-minutes on Sunday. Three of Tottenham's last five outings in the Premier League have witnessed fewer than three goals scored and the same can be said for four of Burnley's last six matches.
Burnley's decision to sack Sean Dyche was met with a lot of raised eyebrows initially. However, since taking over from Dche on April 15, Mike Jackson has done a commendable job for the Clarets. They have won three of their five games since he was appointed.
Jackson was named the Premier League's Manager of the Month for April as well. However, they did fall to a 3-1 defeat to Aston Villa in their latest outing last Saturday (May 7). For now, Burnley are 17th in the Premier League table. They are tied on points with Leeds United but have a game in hand over the Lilywhites. With matches against Aston Villa and Newcastle United coming up after Sunday's battle against Spurs, Burnley will need to be at their very best to ensure they stay in the English top-flight.
For our Tottenham vs Burnley prediction, we're opting for Heung Min Son to score.
