Tottenham vs Burnley: Premier League – LIVE!

ottenham vs Burnley LIVE!

Antonio Conte’s Spurs can leapfrog Arsenal and claim fourth place in the Premier League, albeit potentially temporarily, with victory over Burnley.

Today’s lunchtime kick-off gives Tottenham the chance to build on their north London derby victory which reignited their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League.

The stakes remain high and anything but a win would see the pendulum swing back in Arsenal’s favour ahead of their trip to Newcastle on Monday.

Burnley know a victory may even be enough to effectively seal their survival from relegation this weekend.

The Clarets sit 17th and level on points with Leeds, but the Whites’ significantly worse goal difference means they have to get something out of their game against Brighton later or risk being left behind.

Earlier in the season, it was Burnley who came out on top with a 1-0 win at Turf Moor proving something of a turning point in Tottenham’s fortunes under Conte.

With kick-off at noon, keep up to date via Standard Sport’s live blog featuring expert analysis from Dan Kilpatrick at the ground…

Burnley are desperate for points to beat the drop yet this is perhaps the wrong time to be arriving in Tottenham, with Spurs in fine form and with their own massive goal in sight.

James Tarkowski is a doubt for Burnley along with Ben Mee, Jack Cork and Jay Rodriguez. Mate Vydra and Johann Berg Gudmundsson will miss the trip to the capital.

Caretaker boss Mike Jackson stated on Friday: “At the end of the day, for the players themselves – it’s their livelihood, their bodies, and I wouldn’t push or risk anyone to play when they’re injured.

“A lot of players play with knocks and niggles and if players are right to play and fit enough then they’re up for selection.”
