Tottenham Hotspur host Burnley on Sunday as Jose Mourinho’s side look to return to winning ways in the Premier League, having taken just three points from the last 18 available. That slump has seen Spurs drop to ninth, their Champions League hopes dwindling in the process, though they have at least been boosted by comfortable wins in the Europa League over the past couple of midweeks. The pressure will only continue to increase on the boss if he cannot find consistency domestically, however, so a big performance and result will be expected here after the Portuguese coach claimed his methods were second to none last week.
Burnley, meanwhile, are unbeaten in four in the league; although three of those games have been draws, the constant influx of points has seen them move up to 15th and any lingering relegation fears appear to be quickly easing. When the two sides met earlier in the season, Spurs emerged triumphant thanks to a Son Heung-min goal to nil.

TOTTENHAM 3-0 BURNLEY (39’)
There’s a lull in the game as Burnley look to avoid conceding any further goals and Spurs coast towards half-time. It’s been a good half for Mourinho’s team.

TOTTENHAM 3-0 BURNLEY (35’)
Burnley have shown some signs of admirable attacking intent here but they’ve been far too easily exposed in central areas. Aurier is next to drive through the middle before feeding Moura, who this time skews his shot high and wide.

GOAL! TOTTENHAM 3-0 BURNLEY (MOURA 31’)
That’s probably game over. Spurs work the ball patiently, searching for an opening. Reguilon whips a cross into the box and a slight touch of the head of Tarkowski takes it into the path of Lucas Moura, who controls and then lashes a left-footed shot past Pope.

TOTTENHAM 2-0 BURNLEY (28’)
Westwood lifts a pass out to Lowton, who tries a first-time, volleyed cross. But he gets it wrong, launching the ball into the stand behind the goal. Quality is lacking from the visitors.

TOTTENHAM 2-0 BURNLEY (26’)
Burnley are all at sea again as Son is set away down the left. He drives into the space ahead of him before feeding Bale, who cuts onto his left foot and blazes a shot over, shouting in frustration.

TOTTENHAM 2-0 BURNLEY (24’)
Westwood plays a pass out to Taylor, whose low cross is prodded towards goal by Vydra. He can’t direct it on target, though, sending his effort well wide.

TOTTENHAM 2-0 BURNLEY (22’)
Kane is spraying passes all over the place like Steven Gerrard in his prime. It’s a struggle for the away side to pick him up when he drops into pockets of space.

TOTTENHAM 2-0 BURNLEY (20’)
Burnley are struggling to contain Spurs, who are moving the ball quickly in the final third. Ndombele lifts a cross towards the back post, where Bale stretches but can’t quite connect with the ball under pressure from Pope.

TOTTENHAM 2-0 BURNLEY (17’)
Spurs do well to defend a Burnley corner as the visitors crowd the six-yard box. That’s an area Sean Dyche will hope his side can exploit today.

GOAL! TOTTENHAM 2-0 BURNLEY (KANE 15’)
Clinical from Kane! It’s another direct, incisive counter attack. Bale drills a long pass towards Kane, who escapes on the left, drifts inside and hits a powerful shot towards the near post. A deflection takes it above Pope and into the net.
