Tottenham host Burnley in the Premier League on Sunday in a huge clash at the top and bottom of the table.

Spurs are one point behind city rivals Arsenal in the race for the Champions League after beating the Gunners at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Thursday night.

The result means that Spurs can jump above the Gunners before they play Newcastle on Monday night.

However, it is also a vital fixture for the Clarets as they are deep in a relegation battle and need to take something from this match.

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

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

Tottenham v Burnley: Team news

As it stands, Tottenham don’t have any new 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 away side are down to the bare bones.

The Clarets will definitely 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 is hopeful he will recover.

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

Tottenham v Burnley: What has been said?

Burnley interim head coach Mike Jackson: “It’s going to be a tough game, we know what Spurs do. But you have to have a plan and belief about how you can affect them.”

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 netted for the Clarets. He is two goals from becoming the fourth Ivorian to net 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 highest goalscorer in games played on Sunday (69). If he scores here, he’d be the first player in the competition’s history to score 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 current 20 Premier League sides, Burnley have the highest loss rate in games played on Sundays in the competition’s history (60% – lost 37/62). However, the Clarets did win their last such game (1-0 at Wolves), last winning consecutive Sunday matches in September/October 2017.
  • Burnley have won just two of their last 18 Premier League away games (D7 L9), after back-to-back wins on the road in April/May last year. However, they did win 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 this day than any other side (98).
  • Tottenham lost their final home league game 2-1 against Aston Villa last season – they’ve not lost their last home game in consecutive campaigns since 1992-93 and 1993-94 (against Blackburn and QPR).
  • Burnley could become just the fourth side to complete a top-flight double against a team managed by Spurs’ Antonio Conte, after Sampdoria (2012-13), Manchester City (2017-18) and Juventus (2019-20).
