Burnley F.C. vs Tottenham Hotspur F.C. Predictions, Betting tips and Match preview

Burnley F.C. vs Tottenham Hotspur F.C. predictions for Saturday’s English Premier League match at Turf Moor, Burnley. Tottenham Hotspur aiming to stick to the 2nd position in the EPL table.

Tottenham Hotspur F.C. (2nd in Premier League) have been coping just fine without Harry Kane and should be strong enough to dent Burnley F.C.’s (13th in Premier League) impressive home record with a victory on their trip to Turf Moor, Burnley.

Harry Kane suffered his 2nd injury of the season early in the FA Cup tie against Millwall but in his absence, his team-mates have won both matches they have played and scored 8 goals in the process.

Harry Kane could be back in action at Easter, but in the meantime, it will be up to the likes of Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Heung-Min Son to continue their impressive form in front of goal.

Tottenham Hotspur are on a 4-match winning run since they exited the UEFA Europa League against K.A.A. Gent and while it is now highly unlikely that Chelsea will collapse to reopen the EPL title race, 2nd place looks to be well within the grasp of Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham Hotspur currently occupies this position on merit, 2 points ahead of Manchester City, and the consistency they have shown since mid-December indicates they should not be opposed to a Burnley F.C. side winless since January.

Burnley F.C. are as good as safe from relegation with 8 points to spare over 18th-placed Hull City and assuming they do stay up for the 1st time in 3 English Premier League campaigns since 2009-10, it will be pure as a result of their home results – 29 of their 32 points have been collected on their own turf.

Burnley F.C. held Chelsea to a 1-1 draw in their last home EPL match, although the following weekend they were beaten in the FA Cup at Turf Moor by Lincoln!

This will be no easy task for Tottenham Hotspur and it is unlikely to be a one-sided contest, but the Londoners are proving very reliable as they bid to improve on last EPL season’s 3rd-place finish and can secure another valuable 3 points.
