Burnley host Tottenham Hotspur in the Last 16 of the Carabao Cup with a  place in the Quarter Finals at stake for the winners. 

The Clarets will be looking to reach the Quarter Finals for the first time since the 08/09 season when Owen Coyle's Clarets at the time, reached the Semi Finals before eventually losing out to Wednesday's opponents, Spurs

  • Team News 

It is without question that both teams are likely to make a number of changes with key Premier League games at the weekend. 

Burnley host Brentford at Turf Moor whilst Tottenham face Manchester United off the back of their 5-0 defeat to Liverpool. 

The Clarets are expected to give Connor Roberts a debut in the game but where Sean Dyche plays him is another question. 

Matej Vydra may also make a return for Burnley after returning briefly against Southampton at the weekend but he may be rested for Saturday. 

Ben Mee may also return from testing positive for Covid-19 to gain some match fitness.

As for Tottenham, Ryan Sessegnon and Matt Doherty both miss out with previous injuries. 

Son Heung-Min looks like he may be rested for the weekend but Harry Kane looks set to feature to try and get him scoring again. 

Spanish youngster, Bryan Gil, is also expected to start for the visitors in a changed line-up. 

  • Predicted Line-Ups

Burnley: Hennessey, Roberts, Long, Mee, Pieters, Lennon, Brownhill, Cork, Gudmundsson, Vydra, Rodriguez 

Tottenham: Gollini, Tanganga, Sanchez, Rodon, Davies, Alli, Lo Celso, Ndombele, Gil, Bergwijn, Kane  

  • Ones to Watch 

Connor Roberts (Burnley): It will certainly be interesting to see how the new Burnley full back plays on his debut. The former Swansea man, will look to get up and down on support Lennon down the right and could excite the Burnley faithful.

Harry Kane (Tottenham): It’s these sort of games that will help Harry Kane to build up his form. A small fact of the matter is that Harry Kane quite enjoys playing Burnley with the England captain scoring 9 in 12 against The Clarets in all competitions.

  • Previous Encounters

Many Burnley fans cannot forget the clubs run to the Semi Finals in 08/09 with The Clarets eventually losing to Tottenham in the dying stages at Turf Moor

Spurs did the double over Burnley last year winning 1-0 at Turf Moor and 4-0 at The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Remember Burnley's 2-1 over Spurs in 2019? Well, Burnley will be looking for some of that spirit to put themselves in the hat for the Quarter Finals. 

  • Prediction 

This one could be tighter than people anticipate but neither side will really want extra times with games on Saturday. Tottenham may just edge it but it will be close. 

Prediction - Burnley 1-2 Tottenham
