The match between Tottenham and Burnley will take place at Wembley Stadium. It will be the 1st time these two teams meet each other this season, and Tottenham will be hoping to repeat the result from a year ago (0:3), when they met at Turf Moor.
Tottenham is currently 3rd in the league with an overall record of 12-0-4. Looking at their recent 5 games, they have won 4 and lost 1 against Arsenal (4:2). Their most recent match took place in the Champions League, where they played a draw against Barcelona (1:1). That was an impressive result, which meant Tottenham will proceed into the next stage of the tournament. Their last Premier League match was played at King Power Stadium, where they visited Leicester. Although Leicester used their possession of the ball better, it was Tottenham who scored both of their 2 shots on goal. Leicester, on the other hand, failed to score despite having 10 goal attempts. Final score: 0:2. Tottenham has proven they have got a strong attack and reliable defence. They have scored 30 goals this season and conceded only 16 (average 1 per game). In their last 5 games in the Premier League, they scored 11 goals (2.2 per game), which should be a reason of concern for Burnley who are far from a good defensive team. On the other hand, they conceded 6 goals, but 4 of them came from a match against Arsenal (4:2) and 1 from a match against Chelsea (3:1)
Burnley is currently 17th in the league, only 2 points above the relegation zone. In their 16 games, they have won 3, drew 3 and lost 10. Looking at their recent 5 games, Burnley has played a draw against Leicester, lost against Newcastle (1:2), Crystal Palace (2:0) and Liverpool (1:2), however, they won their most recent match against Brighton (1:0). The match against Brighton saw a total of 24 goal attempts (12 per team) but only 5 shots on goal. Burnley despite having much less of the ball at their feet (38%) used their possessions much better, as they had 4x as many shots on goal as their opponents. The only goal of the match was scored in the 40th minute by Tarkowski, which was enough for Burnley to win their 3rd match of the season. Final score: 1:0
Burnley did perform well in their recent match, but they are no match for Tottenham who is coming from an impressive result against Barcelona. As of now, Tottenham is 6 points behind leading Liverpool in the BPL and they need to win matches like this one if they wish to stay in the top 3 or finish even further up. What I expect in this match is Tottenham to win, however with the line of Over/Under goals being set at 3.5, I feel like this is just too high. Tottenham has a potent attack, but I do not see them scoring more than 3 goals. As for Burnley, I would be impressed if they get a good chance to score a goal against Tottenham.
Prediction: Under 3.50 goals
