Tottenham themselves have been rather inconsistent, with last weekend's game against West Ham United being a perfect encapsulation of their season so far. There were sublime in attack in the first half, and took a 3-0 lead. But a mad ten-minute spell at the end of the match ensured that the Hammers took away a point.
Burnley have just a solitary point from their four Premier League games so far this season. Sean Dyche's side have conceded eight goals in four games, which is uncharacteristically high for them.

Burnley vs Tottenham Hotspur Prediction
Tottenham Hotspur, last weekend's result notwithstanding, are in excellent form. Kane and Son have been scoring goals for fun this season. Against a Burnley side bereft of confidence and missing some key personnel, Tottenham Hotspur will fancy their chances of winning.
Jose Mourinho will also expect a response to last week's capitulation against West Ham, which was unlike a team managed by the Portuguese.
