Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Tottenham will be aiming to extend their winning run in the Premier League to three games when they face Burnley on Saturday afternoon. Spurs have been producing fine displays following Harry Kane’s departure and they are seen as hot favourites to beat the newcomers at Turf Moor. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be summer recruit James Maddison, who opened his goal-scoring account in a 2-0 win over Bournemouth at the weekend. All Bryan Gil, Bentancur, Sessegnon, and Whiteman should miss out with injuries for the away team.
The Clarets, on the other hand, have been struggling at the back in the new EPL campaign, with the team conceding six goals in total in back-to-back defeats to Man City (3-0) and Aston Villa (3-1). Anyhow, away win should be considered as Tottenham have been in a much better form of late than Burnley. Anass Zaroury is banned for the hosts, while both Jordan Beyer and Michael Obafemi are sidelined with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Heung-min Son):
Over the years Son Heung-Min has established himself as one of the best Asian footballers. Son is a Tottenham Hotspur first-team regular and he played a very important role in Mauro Pochettino’s team in the 2017/2018 Premier League campaign, scoring 12 goals, while making 37 appearances in the process.
The South Korean footballer, who is well known for his speed and a very powerful shot, was born in Chuncheo on 8 July 1992 and he began his youth career at FC Seoul. In 2008 he moved to Hamburger SV, but he made his senior debut for the Bundesliga club two years later. In 2013 he signed a deal with fellow German side Bayer Leverkusen and he scored 21 goals in 62 appearances in the Bundesliga for the BayArena outfit.
In 2015 he signed a five-year contract with Spurs for a fee of £22 million. Son Heung-min made his South Korea debut in a friendly against Syria in 2010.
Highlighted Team (Burnley):
Burnley were one of the founding members of the Football League back in 1888. The Clarets did remarkably well to win the FA Cup trophy back in 1914 and the club owners have been trying to bring glory days back to Turf Moor ever since.
Burnley defeated Liverpool in the 1913/1914 FA Cup final and, no doubt, this is regarded as the greatest achievement in the club’s history. The Clarets finished the 2015/2016 Championship campaign in top position in the standings and, as a result, they will participate in the English Premier League in the 2016/2017 season.
Burnley play their home games at Turf Moor and the capacity of the stadium is 21,401. The Clarets have won two Community Shield trophies so far, in 1960 and 1973, but they have yet to clinch the Premier League title. Claret is the dominant colour of the team’s home shirts.
