BBC Football pundit Mark Lawrenson is tipping Tottenham to claim a 2-0 win over Burnley in the Premier League clash at Turf Moor on Saturday evening.

We head into the game looking to get our top-four bid back in track after having dropped down below Burnley the Premier League table in recent weeks.

We lie seventh place in the table and fresh from their 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Manchester City last weekend.

We have been struggling to find consistent form, winning just two of our last five games in the Premier League.

However,Lawrenson is fully expecting to see the us return to winning ways by beating Burnley on Saturday lunchtime.

Writing in his column for BBC Sport, Lawrenson said: “Tottenham got battered by Manchester City last week and they don’t usually do well on the road against teams who are above them in the table.

He added: “Burnley have been on such a good run but they were probably relieved to get a point at Brighton last week, and I just wonder if the festive period might be hiccup time for the Clarets.”
