Tottenham reached the final of the League Cup last season, but it would take a remarkable effort from the team to rediscover a winning touch this time around. Under the management of Nuno, Spurs have struggled for consistency and they have also not been able to create a lot of chances. Burnley, though, are without a win over Spurs since 2019 and this is the only success for the team against this opponent in the last six attempts.
Total goals under 2.5
Whenever Burnley and Tottenham have come up against other at Turf Moor, the matches have turned out to be very close contests. This is likely to be repeated once again with Spurs without a goal in the last two matches. Burnley have seen over 2.5 goals in just one of the last four matches.
Goals from both teams – no
Burnley have a decent record when it comes to scoring at home with the team failing to find the back of the net only twice in the last five matches at Turf Moor. Spurs are looking short of confidence and creativity. Nuno’s teams are especially good on the counter, but this Spurs team have failed to score in the last two matches.
