A win for Tottenham away at strugglers Burnley will take them to within five points of fourth placed Manchester City, keeping their outside chance of Champions League football for next season alive for another day.
The Clarets, on the other hand, could potentially lift themselves out of the relegation zone with a result at Turf Moor and have been known to pull of shock results this season, as Manchester City know.
Here’s how Spurs should line up in Lancashire:
GK – Michel Vorm
Tottenham’s number one goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is likely to sit this one out following the gash he picked up before the international break against Leicester. Vorm should be a more than able deputy.
DR – Kyle Walker
The attacking full-back has been a more regular fixture for Spurs recently and will fancy his chances getting at a shaky Burnley defence, but will have to track back.
CB – Jan Vertonghen
The Belgian’s experience is invaluable to Tottenham’s back four, though he will have to be on his game to help protect his defensive partner against wily Burnley attackers.
CB – Eric Dier
At only 21 years of age, Dier has coped well with the rigours of regular Premier League football, despite a few mistakes which are always a possibility with youngsters. He will need to up his physicality against a battle-toughened Clarets.
DL – Danny Rose
Another attacking full-back for Tottenham who has been a regular name on the teamsheet. Rose has scored three and assisted four this season, testament to his attacking threat, but he can be exposed easily.
