The English Premier’s 6th matchday will see Burnley welcome Tottenham Hotspur on Monday night, 26th October 2020 on their home ground, Turf Moor, to lock horns with each competing for the championship of the League. The match between the two teams will start immediately at 20:00 GMT.
The visiting team who sit in the 7th position on the table of the English Premier League with 8 points after playing a stalemate with West Ham United, is looking forward to gaining three points as they traveled to tackle Burnley who is in the 17 places on the table with just a point they got from a stalemate against West Bromwich Albino.
Looking at Tottenham Hotspur’s last match, we can see that they defeated LASK in Europa League Match on their ground on Thursday, 22nd, October playing three goals without a reply LASK.
In the game, Tottenham Hotspur pressed their opponent with 57% with 12 shots on goal, out of which five were on target.
The Clarets played against West Bromwich Albino on Monday, 19th October 2020, a game that ended as a goalless stalemate between them, giving them their first points since the beginning of the tournament.
In the tough 90 minutes game between the two sides, The Clarets had 43% ball possession with eight shots on goals, out of which four were on target, while they had 11 shots on goals with six on target. Looking at the two sides’ head-to-head statistics, the record made it known that Tottenham Hotspur has won 12 matches, drawn four, and lost four matches to Burnley in their last 20 matches.
The Lilywhites had shamefully defeated The Clarets in December 2019, playing five goals without reply from Burnley before playing a stalemate in their last meeting on 7th March 2020, playing one against 1 in Turf Moor stadium. Wood scored the first goal for Burnley in the 13th minute of the game before an equalizer from Spur through a penalty kick by Alli in the second half.
According to the two teams’ form guide, Spur has been trending with an undisputed record in their last seven matches as they had four wins and three draws, while The Clarets have won just a match, drawn one, and lost four matches in their last six matches.
Looking at Sean Dyche’s men to play against the Spur, we can see that Bailey Peacock-Farrell missed their last match against West Brom due to his hip injury, and he is also likely to be absent against Spur. Phil Bradsley also not be playing in their next match due to his health status as he was confirmed positive for the contagious virus, Coronavirus.
José Mourinho’s squad, Kane, Bale, Sanchez, Davies, and Ndombele are most likely to be among the XI that will start the match against Burnley on Monday. At the same time, Dier and Japhet Tanganga will be absent from the game due to their respective injuries.
Looking at the statistics above, we can see that Tottenham Hotspur has been trending with an unbeaten record, which will give them enough confidence to play against their opponent on Monday night.
In the game, I think Spurs should be able to defeat their host playing two against 1
I predict a match odd of 1.67 for Spur to gain three more points from their opponent, 5.75 for Burnley to win, and 4.10 for the game to end as a stalemate between the two sides.
