5/1 Accurate Football Predictions: Tottenham Hotspur vs Burnley

Betting Tips

Tottenham Hotspur will take on Burnley, a team from the Premier League, at home in an FA Cup third-round match on Friday night to kick off 2024.

The two teams square up for the first time since September when Spurs defeated the Clarets 5-2 at Turf Moor in the Premier League.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Burnley

Spurs’ 3-1 victory over Bournemouth on New Year’s Eve puts them within striking distance of the leading pack, despite having to deal with a mound of injuries following their incredible start to the season.

Ange Postecoglou has already faced a great lot of hardship, and the international competitions that are coming up in Asia and Africa won’t make things any easier for the Australian because of the players he will be missing.

However, big Ange is the man who will bring silverware back to N17, according to Spurs supporters, and the FA Cup is a major deal. This tournament offers them the biggest opportunity to win any hardware this season, even though they’re still in the running for the Premier League crown.

After a miserable start to 2023–24, Vincent Kompany’s Burnley has shown some life in recent weeks, but the Clarets seem set for relegation. They have only won 11 of the 20 Premier League games they have played thus far. They were also soundly eliminated by Everton in the first round of the EFL Cup. Burnley only made their situation worse by losing 3-2 on the road against Aston Villa in the Premier League’s previous round.  The Belgian will be eager to manage a promising Cup run as well.

Verdict

In the past month, Tottenham has performed incredibly well at home. They scored nine goals in total against Newcastle, Everton, and Bournemouth. They did not let even the injuries to some key players, like Maddison, slow them down. Burnley is very close to elimination in the Premier League, so they will undoubtedly be much more focused on that competition and probably won’t give the FA Cup much thought. Even with a somewhat altered squad, we anticipate that Tottenham will easily score goals and possibly even win more decisively.

The Clarets have suffered six losses in their last eight road games, and they are unlikely to win this one against their formidable opponents, who can put their visitors to shame with their outstanding attacking play.

Burnley’s last nine games have seen six goals or more, and considering their offensive prowess and Spurs’ weakness on defense, plenty of goal-bulging action is to be expected once again. This is especially true given that the visitors’ last six FA Cup matches against Premier League opponents resulted in 28 goals.
