Predicted Spurs XI to face Burnley

Image: SpursWeb

Tottenham Hotspur follow up their heroics in Barcelona with a game against Burnley this weekend.

However humorous this sounds, it should be not overlooked as a fixture, as there are no easy games in the Premier League.

Spurs may chose to make a few changes from their away European trip, and will want to make up some ground on both City and Liverpool above.

We believe that the back four and keeper we remain largely the same, with the only change being Ben Davies coming in for Danny Rose.

Walker-Peters retains his place despite his mistake in Spain.

Eric Dier comes back into the starting line up with Moussa Sissoko in the centre of the park, giving Harry Winks a rest.

Lucas Moura swaps in, with Heung Min Son dropped to the bench, a rotation we will likely see a lot this winter.

Harry Kane, Dele Alli, and Christian Eriksen all retain their starting places.


Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Always great to see Harry Kane make a contribution. Still, he didn’t show up until the last 15 minutes in Barcelona and the team played very well around him. Maybe it would be better to start him on the bench for a while. Not to discredit or diminish his skills in any way -but- Lamela- Son- Moura- Dele and Ericksen do form a formidable strike force in and of themselves and having Kane in back up during this period of time just makes us that more formidable. No one seems to know what is happening with Kane. Is he exhausted ? Is the new baby keeping him up ? Does he still suffer from the Captain England illusion ? He is still a young man and he must be under tremendous pressure to perform. The team is doing well and they are not depending on Kane. (They can’t) If they don’t have to play around him; they may do even better and perhaps when he finally realizes that he isn’t required to carry the whole load; he will be able to get back to delivering more of the magic that he has delivered in recent years. World Cup and the International nonsense that followed the WC dealt a vicious blow to Spurs in particular. The team has shown great resiliency and most of our players have bounced back ( at least most of the way) Kane is the only player who is still a considerable distance from complete recovery. Maybe if we let his team mates carry the load for another month or so; we will see a fully fit and sharp Kane back with us. In so many ways and for so many reasons this could be an absolute banner year for Tottenham Hotspurs. My hope is that management will take what ever steps they can (while they can) to get Harry Kane back to fullest form and fitness. Having his consistent star quality on the field with us from February until June could make all the difference. The new stadium is the cake. Our performance could be the icing. COYS
