Both teams are eager to score points in the top four and relegation battles, but the Clarets haven’t won in north London since 1983


Tottenham welcome Burnley to the Premier League on Sunday in a huge clash up and down the table.

The result means Spurs can jump over the Gunners ahead of playing Newcastle on Monday night.

However, it is also vital for the Clarets as they are locked in a relegation battle and need to get something out of this game.

But Burnley’s record against Tottenham in north London is shocking, and they’ve lost nine of their last ten visits and haven’t won there since 1983.

Still, they can take heart from their spirited 1-0 win over Spurs at Turf Moor earlier this season.

Ben Mee’s head was the difference the last time these two met


Tottenham v Burnley: Team news

As things stand, Tottenham have no further injuries to worry about but they will be without Sergio Reguilon.

Matt Doherty, Japhet Tanganga and Oliver Skipp are out for the remainder of the campaign.

Meanwhile, the outer side is reduced to the essentials.

The Clarets will certainly be without Ben Mee, Ashley Westwood, Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Matej Vydra.

James Tarkowski was substituted against Aston Villa with an unknown problem, but Jackson hopes he will recover.

Jay Rodriguez has also been absent from Burnley’s last two matches, Maxwel Cornet has only just returned from a slight knee problem and Jack Cork is doubtful.

Tottenham v Burnley: Match Stats

  • Maxwel Cornet is Burnley’s top scorer in the Premier League this season, with his eight goals more than double any other player has scored for the Clarets. He is two goals away from becoming the fourth Ivorian to score at least 10 times in his debut Premier League campaign, after Didier Drogba (2004-05), Arouna Koné (2012-13) and Wilfried Bony (2013-14).
  • Tottenham striker Harry Kane is the Premier League’s all-time leading goalscorer in matches played on Sunday (69). If he scores here, he would be the first player in the history of the competition to score more than 70 goals on two different days of the week (70 on Saturday).
  • Tottenham’s Harry Kane has been involved in 11 goals in 11 Premier League games against Burnley (8 goals, 3 assists), scoring seven in his last seven against them in the competition.
  • Of all the current 20 Premier League sides, Burnley have the highest Sunday defeat rate in the competition’s history (60% – lost 37/62). However, the Clarets won their last such game (1-0 against Wolves), last winning back-to-back games on Sunday in September/October 2017.
  • Burnley have won just two of their last 18 Premier League away games (D7 L9), following back-to-back wins on the road in April/May last year. However, they won their last away league game, coming from behind to beat Watford 2-1.
  • Tottenham have played more Premier League games on a Sunday than any other team (318), but have also lost more games on a Sunday than any other team (98).
  • Tottenham lost their last league game at home 2-1 to Aston Villa last season. They haven’t lost their last home game in consecutive campaigns since 1992-93 and 1993-94 (against Blackburn and QPR).
  • Burnley could become the fourth side to complete a top-flight double against a side managed by Spurs’ Antonio Conte, after Sampdoria (2012-13), Manchester City (2017-18) and Juventus (2019-20).
