Burnley v Spurs – how to follow, team news, key information
Sat 27 November 2021, 21:06|Tottenham Hotspur
We make our second trip of the season to Turf Moor on Sunday to face Burnley (kick-off 2pm UK).
Having beaten Sean Dyche’s men 1-0 on their own patch in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup last month, we now return to Lancashire in the Premier League, looking to bounce back from the shock midweek defeat to NS Mura in the Europa Conference League.
The Clarets drew 3-3 at home to Crystal Palace last weekend, but are perched just inside the relegation zone in 18th with nine points from their 12 league matches so far. We’re seventh with 19 points from the same amount of games.
