Spurs Look To Stay in Touch with Liverpool and City
Tottenham defied the odds to reach the last 16 of the Champions League with a draw away to Barcelona on Tuesday night. Spurs only had one point after their opening three group games but they can look forward to Monday's draw. Mauricio Pochettino's side start the weekend six points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool and Spurs will be expected to stay in touch with a win at home to Burnley. The Spurs players deserve credit for the job they've done on the pitch, considering the delay with the move to the redeveloped White Hart Lane.
Tottenham are unbeaten in eight matches in all competitions against Burnley, winning five of them. Spurs are on a club record run of 20 league matches without a draw since a 1-1 draw at Brighton in April. Burnley's win over Brighton last weekend ended their eight-game winless run, which included six defeats. However the Clarets have earned just six points from their last 10 away matches. Sean Dyche's side have conceded 32 league goals this season; only Fulham, with 40, have a worse defensive record.
