Tottenham Hotspur – Burnley
Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur will try to get closer to the Top 5 when they pay a visit to Burnley at Saturday in a match from the 29th round of the Premier League. In our usual English Premier League predictions we will give you some preview of this fixture, let’s begin.
At this point Tottenham are 7th in the standings with 40 points, but in the same time they are just two points behind the 5th Manchester United. As you probably remember, because of Manchester City’s suspension even the 5th place will give a route to the Champions League.
The problem is that right now Spurs are not in a good place to be. The team is struggling because of the injuries of key figures like Harry Kane and Son-Heung Min. In their last four matches Spurs suffered three losses and got eliminated by Norwich City in the FA Cup. Most probably Jose Mourinho is not happy right now.
Tottenham’s season is still not over, though. The team is still in the Champions League and Spurs still have a chance for a Top 5 finish. They must aim to end their campaign on the highest possible note.
Burnley are happy to be 9th in the league right now after managing to stabilize their performance. The team had problems in the first months of the campaign, but now Burnley are in the middle of the table and they are happy with their performance. They have not lost even a single game in their last five appearances.
Last week Burnley had a tough trip to Newcastle where they won a point with a 0-0 draw at the St. James’ Park.
In our English Premier League predictions we have the belief that Tottenham Hotspur’s season is not done yet and Spurs still have what to show, despite of the injuries of some important players. Burnley are a tough opponent though, so Spurs must be careful here.
