Burnley take on Tottenham in a Premier League fixture at Turf Moor on Saturday.

Spurs will come into the game as the favourites and could also be set to welcome back the likes of Harry Kane and Ben Davies. The duo were unable to play in recent games as both were carrying injuries.

Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham side have also won their past four consecutive games in all competitions.

Burnley, meanwhile, have won just one out of their past five games in all competitions.

Sean Dyche’s men are still very much in the relegation battle. As things stand, they are just three points above the drop zone.

However, with Tottenham having their eye on games against Arsenal, Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund in upcoming weeks, the Clarets may fancy their chances during the game.

Burnley were within minutes of holding Spurs to a goalless draw when the two sides last met in December, but a late Christian Eriksen strike at Wembley broke the travelling fans’ hearts.

Things are looking more positive of late for the Clarets, who are unbeaten in the Premier League this year.

The last time that Burnley tasted defeat in the top flight was when they lost against Everton on Boxing Day.

Dyche’s side are set to welcome back Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Robbie Brady back following injury, as reported by Sky Sports. 

The report added that Burnley midfielder Steven Defour will remain out of action and is set to see a specialist in order to obtain help with his calf problems.

Aaron Lennon is also still recovering from injury but is believed to be making good process in terms of recovery.
