Our Predictions

Burnley 0-2 Tottenham Hotspur

It is not easy to beat Manchester City and Tottenham have done that recently in a dramatic fashion. Scoring three goals against is not anyone’s cup of tea and even the best struggle to do that at times. Burnley also had a good result against Brighton but they may not be able to match Tottenham’s quality and confidence at the moment.
