Burnley vs Tottenham Hotspur match preview
After having the bubble of optimism burst in the Carabao Cup, can Tottenham Hotspur immediately get back to winning ways?
On Tuesday night, Spurs suffered their earliest League Cup exit for almost two decades, dumped out by Fulham at Craven Cottage.
The home side took the lead, Micky van de Ven with a very unfortunate own goal, before Richarlison finally get his first of the season, equalising on the hour mark as it ended 1-1.
In the subsequent shootout, Son Heung-min, Dejan Kuluševski and James Maddison all scored but Davinson Sánchez did not, seeing his effort saved, as Fraser Forster was unable to keep out any of Fulham’s five.
Before this, it was all going rather well for Ange Postecoglou’s team, enjoying back-to-back 2-0 wins over both Manchester United and Bournemouth.
Even Robbie Williams was loving big Ange, but Tottenham’s hopes of a first trophy since 2008 will have to wait just that little bit longer.
Back in the Premier League, Spurs have lost seven of their last 18 outings at Turf Moor, including their most-recent fixture there in February 2022.
So, can Burnley cause an upset, aiming to pick up their first points of the season?
It’s played two and lost two for Vincent Kompany’s team so far, beaten 3-0 by Manchester City on the opening night of the campaign, before being swatted aside 3-1 by Aston Villa on Sunday.
Lyle Foster did half the deficit at one stage of the latter, but this was scant consolation.
In better news, the Clarets did pick up their first victory of the season Wednesday night, beating Nottingham Forest in the League Cup, thanks to Zeki Amdouni’s dramatic, stoppage time winner at the City Ground.
So, can Burnley secure back-to-back home league wins over Spurs for the first time since 1964, or will Tottenham be too strong at Turf Moor?
Burnley team news
Vincent Kompany made nine changes for Wednesday’s win in Nottingham, handing full-debuts to Nathan Redmond and Aaron Ramsey.
Up front, Zeki Amdouni’s winner in mid-week will surely see him return to the XI, alongside last weekend’s goal-scorer Lyle Foster.
Anass Zaroury remains suspended following his straight red card on the opening weekend.
Predicted XI (4-3-3): Trafford; Roberts, O’Shea, Al-Dakhil, Delcroix; Cullen, Berge, Benson; Koleosho, Foster, Amdouni.
Tottenham Hotspur team news
Ange Postecoglou has been criticised for making nine changes at Craven Cottage on Tuesday, with only Micky van de Ven and Richarlison keeping their places, but it was still a strong XI that took on Fulham.
Destiny Udogie’s performances have quickly established him as the first-choice left-back, while James Maddison, Yves Bissouma and Pape Matar Sarr will be amongst those also returning.
In attack, Son Heung-min has previously scored three times against Burnley, one of which saw him given the FIFA Puskás Award in 2020.
Predicted XI (4-3-3): Vicario; Porro, Romero, van de Ven, Udogie; Sarr, Bissouma, Kuluševski, Maddison, Son Heung-min; Richarlison.
