Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to bounce back immediately at Turf Moor as they travel to take on Burnley.

Spurs lost 2-1 to Slovenian minnows NS Mura in the Europa Conference League after conceding in the 94th minute.

They did eventually creep their way to a 2-1 victory in their last league game, however, defeating an injury-stricken Leeds United at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium thanks to Sergio Reguilon’s winner.

Their hosts tomorrow played their part in a thrilling encounter last weekend - The Clarets came from behind to secure a 3-3 draw with Crystal Palace.

The two teams go into tomorrow’s game separated by 10 points in the Premier League with Tottenham sat in seventh place, 11 places ahead of their opponents.

  • Team News

Burnley are without two key players through suspension as James Tarkowskiand Ashley Westwood both picked up their fifth bookings of the season during last weekend’s thriller.

Nathan Collins should fit seamlessly in at the back alongside Ben Mee, while Jack Cork should return to partner Josh Brownhill in the Clarets midfield.

Sean Dyche confirmed on Friday that Ashley Barnes will miss a second successive due to an injury sustained during the recent international break.

Spurs are waiting to see whether Giovani Lo Celso will be fit following his own international break injury, while his fellow Argentina teammate Cristian Romero will miss the game with an issue of his own.

Harry Winks is likely to return to the bench with Oliver Skipp available again after suspension.

  • Potential line-ups

Burnley.

Pope; Lowton, Collins, Mee, Taylor; Gudmundsson, Cork, Brownhill, McNeil; Cornet, Wood

Tottenham Hotspur.

Lloris; Sanchez, Dier, Davies; Emerson Royal, Skipp, Hojbjerg, Reguilon; Moura, Son; Kane

  • Ones to watch

Maxwel Cornet

Burnley’s dangerman will, once again, look to be the difference in front of his new adoring fans.

Maxwel Cornet loves playing at Turf Moor, and the supporters there love watching him.

He scored a wonderfully powerful first-time volley against The Eagles last weekend just after half time, which was what The Clarets needed.

His partnership with Chris Wood will cause a ton of issues for Tottenham’s back three, whether that be direct or with the ball into feet – they are starting to be able to play both ways together.

Getting in between the channels will be the key for Cornet, to allow Dwight McNeil and Johann Berg Gudmundsson the chance to get up with play to support him.

And when he is not doing that, he can arrive late at the back post to create a chance for himself or others, as he did with his goal against Palace.

Harry Kane

The England captain has had a poor start to the season, and not just by his standards either.

His one league goal this season is not the mark of a World-class striker, let alone one rumoured to be demanding a £150million move away from the club.

But Harry Kane will kickstart his scoring season soon and will be pretty much impossible to stop once in his flow.

Why shouldn’t that streak start tomorrow?

Antonio Conte has to light a fire under him to get him going, he needs to get his main man back to the Kane of old.

His ability to create nothing in a tight space will be particularly useful tomorrow, against a Burnley side renowned for their defensive togetherness – even if that has wavered slightly this season.

Kane’s link up play with his wide players will be important to Spurs tomorrow.

If he can keep hold of the ball and spread the play wide quickly before The Clarets can get their shape, more space should open up and he could find himself in space to have a few shots on goal, if he gets in the right areas.

  • Last meeting

Burnley 0-1 Tottenham Hotspur (Carabao Cup 27/10/2021)

Spurs advanced to the Carabao Cup quarter-finals after a Lucas Moura header gave the visitors a 0-1 victory.

The Brazilian winger’s downward header past Nick Pope was enough to give Spurs the lead after the break.

Harry Kane had squandered a pair of chances in the first half, as Burnley had some chances of their own in the opening 45 minutes.

After Moura’s goal, Burnley poured forward but couldn’t create anything meaningful meaning Tottenham progressed to the last-eight, where they will face West Ham United on the 22nd of December.

It proved to be Nuno Espirito Santo’s last game in charge as he was sacked later that week after defeat to Manchester United.

  • Who is the referee?

Peter Bankes is the man in the middle at Turf Moor.
