sbobet88888 Mark Lawrenson has predicted Tottenham to win when they travel to Burnley on Saturday for a Premier League clash.
Spurs begin the busy Christmas period with a vital away trip to Turf Moor and know that they need three points to keep firmly in the race for the Champions League spots.
They are currently seventh in the league table after losing to Manchester City 4-1 last weekend and opponents Burnley are in fact above them in sixth.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side have just one Premier League point from their last five away games and need to fix that problem immediately on Saturday.
BBC pundit Lawrenson has tipped Spurs to send out a strong message with a 2-0 away win over Burnley, who currently posses the joint-best defensive record in the division alongside the two Manchester clubs.
“Tottenham got battered by Manchester City last week and they don’t usually do well on the road against teams who are above them in the table,” he wrote in his column for BBC Sport.sbobet88888
“Burnley have been on such a good run but they were probably relieved to get a point at Brighton last week, and I just wonder if the festive period might be hiccup time for the Clarets.”
This is arguably Spurs’ biggest game of the season so far and if they slip up against Burnley then it has shown how far they have fallen from last season. There is no doubt they are in for a very difficult game against an in-form side, but they simply must find a way to get three points. They could find themselves six points behind fourth-placed if they lose and it will be a major blow in the dressing room if they suffer a defeat. Spurs need to show they have the character to bounce back from the Man City loss and need the likes of Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli to raise their game. It is set to be a scrapy encounter at Turf Moor at the weeknd and Spurs should have enough individual quality to run out winners.sbobet88888
