Burnley might be stationed in the Premier League relegation zone and be one of the betting favourites to suffer the drop. However, Sean Dyche’s side are currently proving to be very competitive in the top flight and will fancy their chances of securing a victory against a Tottenham Hotspur side who have been largely unconvincing this season.

The Clarets have perennially battled against the drop to the Championship and regularly found a way to finish above three other teams in the division. They have quietly gone about their business in the past four clashes, securing six points from the games played and they weren’t beaten in any of them.

It should be noted that Burnley recently claimed a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge against one of the best teams in Europe and they also played out a 3-3 draw against Crystal Palace in a game where they took the lead twice and could easily have won the game but for a dubious refereeing decision when Chris Wood was bearing down on goal.

Dyche will relish the chance to compete against a Spurs side who have only scored five goals in their six away games this season and the majority of these came in one game at St James’ Park. Antonio Conte is not a miracle worker and the first half performance against Leeds last weekend was a poor one.

Harry Kane came close to scoring on a number of occasions and perhaps the striker will catch fire sooner rather than later, with Son Heung-Min and Lucas Moura likely to be lively in the wider positions, although the team are averaging less than a goal in their Premier League games to date.

When weighing up all the game data and looking at the latest match odds, we can only arrive at the conclusion that the prices are wrong. It might be that Spurs are fully firing in a few weeks’ time, although they might still have a disjointed feel and it’s also the case that Conte is probably drawing up a list of players that he doesn’t want come January.

After beating Leeds last weekend, a draw in Lancashire would steady the ship and give Tottenham a platform to go forward. Let’s not forget that the north London side only managed a goalless draw away to an off-colour Everton team in the previous game and much depends on whether Kane is able to find his shooting boots.

Only two of Burnley’s previous nine games have ended in defeat and don’t be surprised if the Clarets are able to pull off a victory against a team who certainly can’t be trusted at short betting odds for this one.
