First team
SPURS v BURNLEY
Premier League
Sunday, December 18, 2016
White Hart Lane, 4pm

We face a second newly-promoted club at White Hart Lane inside four days as Burnley visit us on Sunday.

The Clarets went down 1-0 at West Ham United in midweek, while we picked up a useful 3-0 victory over Hull City.

Burnley are 13th in the table going into the weekend's action, having amassed 17 points from 16 games.

Sunday's match marks the return to the Lane of our former custodian Paul Robinson, who is the Clarets' number two goalkeeper behind England international Tom Heaton.

 

Under-18s
USA U17s v SPURS
IMG Cup
Saturday, December 17, 2016
Florida, 7.30pm local time (12.30am Sunday local time)

Our Under-18s will look to make it a clean sweep of victories in the group stage at the IMG Cup in Florida when they take on the USA Under-17 national side.

The lads kicked-off proceedings on Wednesday with a 7-0 thrashing of RVG Academy with a Jack Roles hat-trick, an own goal, a Juan Pablo Gonzalez-Velasco penalty and further strikes from Nick Tsaroulla and Keanan Bennetts getting the job done.

On Thursday, Roles added to Kazaiah Sterling's first-half goal to secure a 2-0 victory over Baltimore Armour. We finished the game with 10 men after George Marsh picked up a 51st-minute red card.

We won the IMG Cup back in 2014 and were beaten finalists last year.

 

Spurs Ladies
SPURS LADIES v PORTSMOUTH LADIES
FA Women's Premier League
Sunday, December 18, 2016
Cheshunt FC, 2pm

It's back to league action for Spurs Ladies this weekend as they host Portsmouth Ladies at Cheshunt.

Portsmouth currently sit seventh in the standings with 13 points from 10 games, while Karen Hills' side remain unbeaten at the top of the table.

As usual, we'll have full post-match coverage here on tottenhamhotspur.com early next week.
