Burnley vs Tottenham: Premier League preview

Tottenham will be looking to bounce back from the disappointment of last weekend’s dramatic finale against West Ham when they travel to Turf Moor to meet Burnley on Monday night.

Spurs blew a three-goal lead late on at home to the Hammers, with Manuel Lanzini’s stoppage time screamer earning the Hammers a remarkable draw.

Jose Mourinho shuffled his pack for the Europa League victory over LASK on Thursday night, with Gareth Bale and Vinicius Jr. making their first starts since their summer arrivals.

Sean Dyche’s side, meanwhile, finally picked up their first point of the season when drawing 0-0 with newly-promoted West Brom last weekend.

TV channel: Manchester United vs Chelsea will be shown live on Sky Sports’ Main Event, and is available via Now TV.

Live stream: Sky Sports subscribers can stream the match online via SkyGo and the SkyGo app.

Team news

Harry Kane and Tanguy Ndombele were among those given the night off against LASK and are expected to come straight back into the line-up, while Jose Mourinho must decide whether to hand Gareth Bale another start or restore Stephen Bergwijn to the XI.

In defence, Ben Davies could keep his place at left centre-back after an impressive midweek display.

Prediction: Burnley 0-3 Tottenham

Burnley’s poor start to the season is unlikely to get better here, with Spurs in rampant form and Kane even having had the luxury of a rare midweek rest. Easy away win.

Head to head (h2h) history and results

Burnley were on the end of a 5-0 hammering at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last season but fared better in this fixture, earning a 1-1 draw at home.

However, the Clarets have beaten Spurs just once in their last 12 meetings.
