Spurs

Rival fans had a field day during our EFL Cup second-round encounter with Fulham on Tuesday night, as our much-changed team went into the break facing a 1-0 deficit from VDV's own goal before a rare effort from Richarlison drew us level.

Penalties subsequently loomed, and while the Cottagers converted all five of their spot kicks, Sanchez was denied by Rodak as we suffered the latest in a long line of early cup exits, closing off one avenue to an elusive major trophy in the process.

We have little time to dwell on what could have been at Wembley in February, though, and nor should we, as the Australian's goal-happy troops have already cemented a podium spot in the Premier League standings, occupying third place thanks to our successive wins over Manchester United and Bournemouth.

Goals either side of the break from Maddison and Kulusevski propelled us to victory at the Vitality Stadium last weekend, thereby keeping up our streak of scoring at least twice in all of our Premier League games with Postecoglou at the helm so far.


Now aiming to go four away games unbeaten for the first time since August 2022, we have fond memories from most of our recent showdowns with Burnley - winning four of the last five contests between the two sides – although our last trip to Turf Moor ended in a 1-0 loss, after which Conte memorably questioned his ability to get a tune out of us


Burnley

Despite taking the Championship by storm last season, Kompany's Burnley are yet to make their mark in the Premier League since earning an immediate promotion back to the big time, and a two-week break between the visits of Manchester City and Aston Villa proved largely meaningless.

Due to the major development of Luton Town's Kenilworth Road, Burnley had 16 days to recuperate for a showdown with Aston Villa last weekend, but a brace from Matty Cash and strike from new signing Moussa Diaby rendered Lyle Foster’s 47th-minute response inconsequential.

Already occupying a place in the drop zone - albeit having played a game fewer than all of the teams around besides fellow pointless promotees Luton - Burnley at least managed to boost morale by defeating Nottingham Forest 1-0 in their EFL Cup second-round battle in midweek, although they left it late to advance through a Zeki Amdouni winner.

A meeting with League Two giant killers Salford City - who sent Leeds United packing on penalties - will soon await Burnley, whose number one priority is to snap a six-game winless run in the Premier League stretching all the way back to April 2022.


Things hardly get easier for Burnley following the international break either, as the Clarets must test their mettle against Manchester United and Newcastle United before the end of the month, and us travel to Turf Moor with more than one point to prove.
