Very rarely would you find a Jose Mourinho team as the underdogs against a side of Burnley’s calibre, but so good is the Clarets’ current form, that’s the exact situation we find ourselves in for this clash.
Having flunked out of the FA Cup last night to Norwich and effectively diminishing any possibility of silverware this season, Spurs are now winless in four across all competitions, losing each of previous three matches as they are desperately struggling without the injured duo of Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min.
Indeed, Kane had scored in both his previous games before going off Injured against Southampton on New Year’s day, while Son had scored for five consecutive games in all competitions before being ruled out and the Lilywhites are yet to register a win in their absence, which bodes well for the high flying hosts.
Sean Dyche’s men have now won four of six unbeaten games since mid January, despite playing the likes of Leicester, Man Utd and Arsenal in that time.
A 3-0 win against Bournemouth in their last home fixture proves they can more than cope without Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes, with Jay Rodriguez capable of some magical goals this season and Matej Vydra ending a 28 game goal drought for club and country by bagging in consecutive games.
Kiwi Wood is now back in the frame, and Sean Dyche will have to decide on who is best equipped to cause Spurs’ leaky defence the most problems.
Burnley To Beat Spurs To Nil
The North London side have a mere 20% win percentage in their away games this season across all competitions, while they’ve managed just four clean sheets in a run of W5-D9-L16 on the road since January 2019.
Steven Bergwijn is the only attacking player to score for the visitors since Son joined Kane on the treatment table, and it’s hard to see how they’re going to outscore the Northerners on Saturday evening.
With no clear goalscorers in the Spurs side, and a selection headache for Sean Dyche with his attacking options, there’s little value to be gained on backing a goalscorer here and the both teams not to score market opens up.
Burnley have both scored and conceded in only four of their last 18 games this season and have also managed clean sheets when getting the first goal in six of their last seven such matches, so we’re inclined to back the win to nil at a lofty price.
