Tottenham vs Burnley LIVE! Premier League


ottenham vs Burnley LIVE!

Antonio Conte’s Spurs can leapfrog Arsenal and claim fourth place in the Premier League, albeit potentially temporarily, with victory over Burnley.

Today’s lunchtime kick-off gives Tottenham the chance to build on their north London derby victory which reignited their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League.

The stakes remain high and anything but a win would see the pendulum swing back in Arsenal’s favour ahead of their trip to Newcastle on Monday.

Burnley know a victory may even be enough to effectively seal their survival from relegation this weekend.

The Clarets sit 17th and level on points with Leeds, but the Whites’ significantly worse goal difference means they have to get something out of their game against Brighton later or risk being left behind.

Earlier in the season, it was Burnley who came out on top with a 1-0 win at Turf Moor proving something of a turning point in Tottenham’s fortunes under Conte.

With kick-off at noon, keep up to date via Standard Sport’s live blog featuring expert analysis from Dan Kilpatrick at the ground…

Over on the red side of north London…

Mikel Arteta is looking to put Arsenal’s north London derby defeat behind them with victory over Newcastle on Monday.

Antonio Conte criticised the Gunners boss after their 3-0 defeat for “complaining too much”, following Rob Holding’s first-half red card on Thursday night.

But Arteta has no interest in engaging in a war of words and, when asked about his counterpart’s claims during Saturday’s press conference, he replied: “I am fully focused on Newcastle.”
