Tottenham Hotspur will host Burnley in the Premier League on Sunday, May 15.

After winning against Arsenal 3-0, Spurs shortened the gap between them to one point.

Antonio Conte’s side are currently 5th in the table with 65 points, while the Gunners are at 4th with 66.

Ahead of the game, BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson has stated his prediction.

“Mike Jackson made a brilliant start as Burnley boss but they did not have any kind of spark when they lost at home to Aston Villa last weekend.

 

“They didn’t really put up much resistance, which was very unlike them. It is going to be very interesting to see how they react here, and whether they can make life difficult for Tottenham.

 

“Spurs’ top-four hopes are still not in their own hands but they are very much alive after their win over Arsenal on Thursday and I think they will put in another big performance here.

 

“Whatever happens, Burnley are going to be watching anxiously when Leeds play Brighton a little later on Sunday.”
