Jose Mourinho’s men have slipped to ninth following defeats against Manchester City and West Ham.

Meanwhile, the Clarets are six points above the bottom three following draws against relegation rivals Fulham and West Bromwich Albion.

Team news

Serge Aurier could return for Spurs but Giovani Lo Celso remains sidelined by a hamstring injury.

Burnley pair Chris Wood and Robbie Brady are back in contention, but Ashley Barnes misses out with a thigh problem.

Erik Pieters and Dale Stephens could also return to the squad.
