Burnley will lock horns against Tottenham Hotspur on matchday 4 in the English Premier League on Saturday, 2nd of September, 2023, at Turf Moore Stadium.

Tottenham have been doing excellently well in their previous league matches as they remain unbeaten since the beginning of the new Premier League campaign.

However, the North London outfit will be looking forward to lengthening their winning streak to three games in a row when they face Vincent Kompany’s men this weekend.

Ange Postecoglou’s men have been creating fine performances since the departure of Harry Kane and they are observed as active favorites to secure a victory over the newcomers at Turf Moor.

Tottenham have added some new faces to their team this summer including James Maddison who they signed from Leicester City. Notably, the newcomer opened his goal-scoring account against Bournemouth in Spur’s previous outing.

Meanwhile, Burney did very well in last season’s Championship and won the title with comfort.

But things have not been the same for Vincent Kompany‘s side since the Clarets played their first English Premier League game of the season.

The newly promoted side are third from bottom in the league table at the time of writing with no point from their two games.

They kicked off their 2023/2024 league campaign with a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Man City, followed by a 3-1 loss to Aston Villa at Turf Moor.

Burnley will take on Nottingham Forest away from home in the Second Round of the EFL Cup on Wednesday, 30th of August before they sit at home and face in-form Tottenham in the Premier League.

Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur fought badly during their previous campaign and did not end up in the top four of the Premier League table.

It was a really low campaign for the North Londoners, who then missed their captain Harry Kane to Germain powerhouse Bayern Munich in the ongoing summer transfer window.

Meanwhile, Tottenham are playing good football and are winning games under the leadership of Postecoglou at the moment.

The London outfit are in third place in the Premier League table at the time of writing after they gathered seven points in three matches behind Manchester City.

However, Ange Postecoglou is likely to line up his side in a 4-2-3-1 formation against Burnley.

Richarlison has been battling to gain his fine form, but the Brazil international striker is still likely to lead the line for the North London outfit.

Kulusevski, Maddison, and Son will be the three attacking midfielders. Sarr and Bissouma will be the two defensive midfielders.
