Dyche: 'Spurs can mix the game up and play with pace'
31 March 2017|Tottenham Hotspur
Burnley manager Sean Dyche is happy to be playing us at Turf Moor this weekend.
The Clarets have had four away games on the trot in recent weeks but return to their home ground, where their form has been particularly solid this term, to face us on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 3pm).
Indeed, of the 32 points Burnley have gained in the top flight so far this season, 29 have been won at Turf Moor.
On the other side of the coin, we've won four and drawn six of our 13 away games in the Premier League and Dyche is aware of that fact as he looks forward to the match.
“It’s been five of the last six away from home, which is a tough task for anyone, so we are certainly looking forward to getting back to the Turf,” he said.
“Although that doesn’t guarantee anything, I think it’s fair to say statistically it gives us more chance of getting more points on the board.
“Even if you look at Spurs, their away record is nowhere near their home record. It just goes to show that it’s tough on the road in the Premier League.
“A lot is made of our record, but even with a fine side they have still not got the wins on the table away from home, so that gives us that little glimmer and we will take on the game as we always do.
“We know Spurs will be a tough game. I just think they are one of the top sides in the division and I really like the way they go about their business.
“They can mix the game up and play with pace and pass through the units very quickly.”
