It has been an excellent start to the Ange Postecoglou era in North London, as Tottenham have gone their opening three matches this term without suffering a defeat. Spurs have kept clean sheets in each of their last two matches, with the most recent of those coming following a 2-0 win at Bournemouth last weekend. That is an excellent transformation, as Spurs managed to keep just one clean sheet in their previous 14 matches.
This is a fixture that Spurs have enjoyed in recent seasons, as they have won ten of their last 16 against the Clarets. However, all three defeats that they have suffered in this fixture have come at Turf Moor, which includes a loss on their previous visit in February 2022.
It has been a challenging start to the Premier League season for Burnley, as they are yet to pick up a point after falling to defeats against Man City and Aston Villa. Due to their postponed fixture on the road against Luton, the Clarets will become just the fourth side in Premier League history to open their campaign with three straight home matches.
The Clarets will be looking to avoid making unwanted history this weekend, as they have lost their opening three matches at the start of a new season on just three previous occasions. Burnley landed a 1-0 win in the most recent fixture between these sides at Turf Moor, but they haven’t won back-to-back home matches against Spurs since May 2010.
Burnley vs Tottenham Prediction
The Clarets have really struggled to re-adjust to life back in the Premier League. This will be a testing fixture this weekend, as Spurs have started the new campaign in excellent fashion. We find it extremely challenging to overlook an away win on Saturday.
