BURNLEY will be aiming to build on their emphatic win at Brighton when they host Tottenham on Wednesday night (KO 7:30pm).

Sean Dyche’s men ran out 3-0 winners against the Seagulls thanks to goals from Wout Weghorst, Josh Brownhill and Aaron Lennon.

Team news

Weghorst and Maxwel Cornet are both available despite picking up knocks against Brighton at the weekend.

The Clarets are still waiting on news about James Tarkowski and Ashley Westwood, who were absent after testing positive for Covid-19.

Matej Vydra and Johann Berg Gudmundsson remain sidelined but Charlie Taylor could be available for Saturday’s trip to Crystal Palace.

Opposition lowdown

Former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte took charge at Tottenham back in November, succeeding Nuno Espirito Santo.

Spurs are currently eighth in the Premier League table – seven points off the top four, despite having several games in hand on most of the teams around them.

Conte’s men enter the game on the back of a thrilling 3-2 win at leaders Manchester City over the weekend after goals from Dejan Kulusevski and a Harry Kane brace.


Burnley have faced Spurs 120 times in their history, with a record of 41 wins, 28 draws and 51 defeats.

The London club recorded a narrow 1-0 victory when the sides met at Turf Moor in the Carabao Cup earlier this season.

Lucas Moura scored the decisive goal during the second half, beating Nick Pope with a clinical header.
