Burnley’s 5-0 loss in the reverse fixture in December was their joint-biggest margin of defeat in the Premier League.

The Clarets ended a run of nine games without a victory against Spurs in all competitions by winning 2-1 at Turf Moor last February.

This is the 100th league fixture between the clubs. Spurs have 39 wins to Burnley’s 36, with 24 draws.

Burnley have 38 points after 28 matches this season, one more than they had at this stage of the 2017-18 campaign when they went on to finish seventh and earn a place in the Europa League qualifying rounds. Last season, the Clarets finished the season on 40 points.
They are unbeaten in six league games (W4, D2).

Since 18 January, only Liverpool have earned more Premier League points than Burnley’s 14 from six games. The Clarets have the best defensive record in that time period, conceding only two goals.

Burnley’s total of 11 Premier League clean sheets this season is second only to Liverpool.
Tottenham Hotspur

Spurs are looking to avoid three consecutive league defeats for the first time since November 2012 under Andre Villas-Boas.

Even if they won their remaining 10 league fixtures this campaign they would finish with one point fewer than last season’s tally.

Tottenham are 20 points worse off than they were after 28 games of last season, when they took only 11 points from their final 10 league matches.

A 2-1 defeat at Burnley in February 2019 began an ongoing run of just three victories in 20 away matches.

They have conceded 39 Premier League goals this campaign, equal to last season’s final tally. Spurs have not had a worse defensive record since 2014-15, when they let in 53 goals.
