Burnley are winless in their last seven Premier League meetings with Tottenham (D2 L5), since winning 4-2 on the final day of the 2009-10 campaign.

Tottenham have kept a clean sheet on each of their last three visits to Burnley in the top-flight, winning twice and drawing once.

Only Manchester United (9) are on a longer current unbeaten run in the Premier League than Burnley (7). The Clarets last had a longer unbeaten run in the top-flight between May-September 1966 (9 games).

Since beating Liverpool in August 2016, Burnley have only taken two points from their last 42 available at home against ‘big six’ opponents in the Premier League (W0 D2 L12). They’ve failed to keep a clean sheet in any of those games, conceding 27 goals and netting just six in return.

Tottenham have won 11 Premier League away games this season, already their most in a single campaign in the competition. They last won more on the road in a single league season in 1984-85 (12).

Only Liverpool (1) have failed to score in fewer Premier League games than Tottenham this season, with Spurs’ only failings coming in home games against the two Manchester sides (0-1 vs Man City in October, 0-1 vs Man Utd in January).

Tottenham have scored a league-high 12 Premier League goals from outside the area this season, while Burnley have conceded the most in this fashion so far (12).

Burnley’s Ashley Barnes has scored in each of his last three Premier League appearances, including scoring from the penalty spot in his last two. Only five players have ever scored a penalty in three consecutive Premier League games before, with Sergio Aguero in November 2017 the most recent.

Heung-min Son has scored eight goals in his last eight Premier League appearances for Tottenham, netting in each of his last three in a row. He last scored in four consecutive top-flight appearances in April 2017.

Of all Premier League goalkeepers to have played at least five games this season, Burnley’s Tom Heaton has the best saves to shots ratio in the division (80%).
