Burnley defender Clarke Carlisle has warned Tottenham that they will need a different game plan when they are away from home.
Spurs fired five past the Clarets at White Hart Lane last weekend, but Carlisle believes Harry Redknap’s side need an alternative style away from home.
‘Spurs’ way of playing seems very much to be “You score three, we’ll score four”,’ Carlisle told the London Evening Standard.
‘We could have had a few goals ourselves on Saturday, and it will be interesting to see whether Spurs play the same way away from home this season, as it is a very attacking style.
‘They have a flowing, attacking manner, clever strikers, and good providers from midfielders, so they will always be a threat at home.
‘But it is very important in this League that you get results away from home – as we are finding to our detriment.’
