Tottenham Hotspur vs Burnley. Prediction and Preview. Probable Lineups, Team News, Stats and more


Spurs will host Burnley at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the 37th round of the English Premier League. The match will take place on May 15, beginning at 21:00 IST.

Few of the remaining Premier League games are of great tournament significance. But that is certainly not the case with the game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday. It is a fixture of huge importance for both teams. Not only the fate of Tottenham and Burnley this season, but also the teams’ prospects for the next few years depends largely on the outcome of this very encounter.

Some are keen to play in the world’s most prestigious club tournament next season – which will help bring in both money and new quality transfers for the ambitious Conte. Others are struggling to survive – remaining in the elite English division is clearly an achievement for a team of this calibre.

So what should we expect from this duel? Parimatchnews will tell you everything you need to know ahead of the upcoming match.

Tottenham Hotspur News & Current Form:

Antonio Conte’s team did everything in their power to ensure that the intrigue of the battle for a fourth place from England would live on until the last matchday. Spurs held on to a 1-1 draw at Anfield last weekend and then crushed their only rival to date, Arsenal, 3-0 on home soil in midweek. Victory over their arch-rivals allowed Tottenham to move close to fourth place (one point gap). But Antonio Conte’s side still have their hands full when it comes to their quest for the Champions League title. Spurs need more than two wins in the remaining games – they also need a slip-up from Arsenal.

For that matter, Tottenham are unhappy with the Premier League’s decision to put the game against Burnley into the early hours of Sunday. Spurs have thus been given just two days to recover, a day and a half less than Arsenal. The match involving the Gunners will take place on Monday evening.

Burnley News & Current Form:

Most interestingly, Burnley are also dissatisfied with the decision. The fact is that the Clarets will be missing out on a significant part of their support in the away stands. Even by boarding the first train on Sunday, Burnley fans will, at best, make it to London by half-time. To get to the game, fans would need to leave a day earlier and spend the night in the capital, which not everyone can afford.

As for Burnley’s prospects in the league, despite a four-match unbeaten streak (Jackson was even awarded coach of the month in the EPL for that), they look rather shaky. But unlike Tottenham, the Violets remain the ultimate creators of their own destiny. Mike Jackson’s team has a much better goal difference than Leeds, which is one foot in the Championship. Therefore, all Burnley need to do to stay in the Premier League is to pick up as many points in their remaining three games as the Whites do in their two games. Seems positive.

What has been said before the match:

Antonio Conte:

“Now it’s Burnley, a crucial game for us. It will be very important to get three points because we have only one way of trying to take a place in the Champions League and to put pressure onto Arsenal, because they have one point more.”

“Honestly, I think that we have to look to ourselves and to play our game in this moment. We have to know the difficulty that we are going to face against a team like Burnley – don’t forget, away in the last game, we lost and this made me very angry after the game. We have one thousand reasons to play an important game, an intense game with the right mentality and to try to get three points.”

“We are talking about a team that is used to fighting. It’s very important to win duels, to be strong physically and mentally. Tactically they know us and we know them and the way to play, but the game will be very intense with the physicality and for this reason, we have to be ready to play a strong game. It won’t be easy, I know this, but at the same time, we are in a good moment, we are in a good position with great enthusiasm around us and we have to use all of these positive situations in the right way.”

“It’s vital – I repeat, it’s our last game of the season at home, we are playing for something important, for a good achievement for everybody, for the club, for the players, for the fans… for everybody. For this reason, we (players and fans) have to play this game against Burnley together. It will be very important to support us from the start until the end with the same intensity that they showed against Arsenal.”

Mike Jackson:

“We know it’s going to be a tough game, just like every away game is and every home game too in the Premier League. We know what Spurs do, I think everybody knows what their strengths are and what they’re good at. You’ve just got to have a plan and a belief in how you can go and affect them. This is the next challenge that faces us.”

“After the Villa game, we spoke about what the team have actually done so far. They’re still here and they’ve not gone away [in the survival fight], that’s credit to this group and the spirit that they’ve got. It’ll stand them in good stead for the last three games. Nobody can predict what’s going to happen, you’ve just got to be ready to fight.”

“Pressure is always there. You just have to keep fighting and keep going, don’t give into it. You keep attacking the next day and that’s the best way.”

Tottenham Hotspur vs Burnley Prediction:

Conte’s Tottenham have a curious tendency. When the team seems to have gained momentum and when they are expected to continue the trend, they are bound to go into a puddle. Therefore, it is possible that Spurs will unexpectedly lose points, as they did in the recent games with Brighton and Brentford. Although, of course, a team that wants to play in the Champions League should have no problems dealing with an opponent of Burnley’s level. All the more so at home. 

Nevertheless, the Clarets can cause problems, parking the bus and play second best. And as we know, London are strong on the counterattack, which may not be the case in the upcoming match. Keeping the first leg in mind, which ended in Burnley’s favour (1-0) – which caused the Italian to cry his heart out live on air. At the time, it seemed to ignite another management scandal, after which the club could lose the coach again.

Parimatch News staff prediction: 

We say: Spurs will not lose and the match total less than 3.5 – Yes.
