Spurs are seven points behind Aston Villa who have a difficult fixture ahead of them and they need to defeat Burnley who are desperate to move away from the relegation zone.

After continuous losses to Newcastle, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool, Tottenham host Burnley as they hope to secure Champions League qualification.

Spurs head into this fixture with from a 4-2 defeat courtesy of Liverpool. In this game, Tottenham almost found their groove after the half hour mark scoring twice in five minutes.

Unlucky for them they were not able to complete these comebacks resulting to back to back losses. Son scored in these games taking tally to 6 goals in the last 30 minutes of their games.

They sit seven points behind Aston Villa and they will be hoping for a miracle that they lose their remaining games to reclaim their top four position. Aston Villa are yet to play against Liverpool and Crystal Palace.

In the reverse fixture, Burney got hammered 5-2 by Spurs with son getting a hat trick before the 70th minute. Burnely defenders will have to bring their A game to keep son quiet. The Clarets and Spurs met again in the FA cup and emerged victorious with a narrow 1-0 win.

If Burnley lose this fixture, relegation will be confirmed. Although all hope is not lost a win at Spurs coupled with a Nottingham Forest’s loss at home to Chelsea could see them pull of a great relegation escape to go to the final matchday where they will face none other than Forest! Poetic don’t you think?

A hot stat about this fixture, except from the 5-2 win in the reverse fixture four of their last five fixtures have ended in a narrow 1-0 win for spurs. Will Vincent Kompany’s men spoil the part for Ange Postecoglou’s side by changing this narrative?

Spurs will play without they PL player of the season nominee Udogie who has been sidelined due to a thigh injury. This will be a game to be determined by fine margins as both teams could be condemned to unwanted premier league fates.
