Burnley welcome Tottenham to the Turf Moor looking for their first win of the season. After starting the campaign with losses against Manchester City and Aston Villa, there was some redemption for Burnley in the midweek victory over Nottingham Forest in the League Cup. Manager Vincent Kompany cannot allow the team to get involved in a relegation battle straight away.
Burnley vs Tottenham Predicted Lineups and News
Burnley – Can the Clarets Brush Aside Woeful Start?
Burnley were able to dominate the Championship last season, but Vincent Kompany has witnessed a muted start to the club’s Premier League campaign. It has not been an ideal start to the campaign for the Clarets, who have had plenty of recovery time between matches. Burnley are already in the bottom three positions, but they have played a game less than many other teams in the division. Still, Burnley will be looking for a psychological boost in order to start climbing up. The run does not get any easier for Burnley who will be going up against Manchester United just after the international break.
Team news: Burnley
Burnley boss Vincent Kompany is still missing a handful of players ahead of the league match with Spurs. Anass Zaroury will be unavailable because of his suspension. Aaron Ramsey and Vitinho are rated as doubts for the game and their participation will be decided on Saturday afternoon. Jordan Beyer, Michael Obafemi, Darko Churlinov, and Hjalmar Ekdal are the three other players will be unavailable. Even though it is expected that the first three will be available after the international break, Hjalmar Ekdal will take a little while longer.
Burnley Predicted Lineups (4-2-3-1):
James Trafford, Connor Roberts, Ameen Al Dakhil, Dara O’Shea, Hannes Delcroix, Josh Cullen, Sander Berge, J. Berg Gudmundsson, Zeki Amdouni, Luca Koleosho, Lyle Foster
Tottenham – Keeping Up an Impressive Start
Tottenham had a midweek match against Fulham but Ange Postecoglou went with a second string line-up for the EFL Cup match. After being knocked out of the competition on penalties, Spurs will be switching their attention back to the Premier League with a string of difficult games coming up. After having managed wins over Manchester United and Bournemouth, Spurs have been able to overcome disappointment from the draw with Brentford on the opening day. Spurs will have matches against Arsenal and Liverpool coming up just after the international break. Postecoglou will be keen on going into the break with a positive attitude.
Team news: Tottenham
Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou has some important calls to make in the squad. Richarlison is in doubt for the game after picking up a knock in the recent match against Fulham. His absence is likely to result in Alejo Veliz leading the attack. Ryan Sessegnon, Bryan Gill, and Rodrigo Bentancur are all ruled out of the game due to an injury.
Tottenham Predicted Lineups (4-2-3-1):
Guglielmo Vicario, Pedro Porro, Cristian Romero, Micky van de Ven, Iyenoma Udogie, Pape Sarr, Yves Bissouma, Dejan Kulusevski, James Maddison, Heung-Min Son, Alejo Veliz
