Good morning from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Welcome to SunSport’s live coverage of today’s lunchtime tussle between Tottenham Hotspur and Burnley in the Premier League.
After a resounding 3-0 victory over bitter rivals Arsenal in midweek, Tottenham have the chance to move above them and into the top four this afternoon with the Gunners not playing until Monday. Just a point separates the pair in an enthralling finish to the season.
However, Antonio Conte’s men will be well aware of the threat Burnley pose having falling victim to a Maxwel Cornet stoppage time winner in the reverse fixture of this match earlier in the season. Although, back on home turf, Spurs will be far more confident after netting nine times in their previous two home games against the Clarets.
For the Clarets, Mike Jackson has turned the ship around for an otherwise sinking Burnely since taking charge last month, winning three of his last five games to take his side clear of the relegation zone on goal difference. Another victory this afternoon would take Burnley crucially three points clear of Leeds below them.
The contest is set to begin at 12:00 on the dot and we will bring you confirmation of both teams’ starting line-ups next as we build up to kick-off.
