We begin 2024 with an FA Cup third-round tie at home against fellow Premier League outfit Burnley on Friday night. he two teams meet for the first time since September when Spurs claimed a comfortable 5-2 victory over the Clarets at Turf Moor in the top flight.



Spurs
Just three days after suffering a 4-2 defeat at Brighton & Hove Albion, we bounced back to end 2023 on a high with a 3-1 home victory over high-flying Bournemouth in the Premier League on New Year's Eve.

Sarr and Son both found the net as a parting gift before they prepare for respective AFCON and Asian Cup duties, before Richarlison added a third – his fifth goal in as many games – to put the game to bed. Alex Scott pulled one back for the Cherries in the closing stages, but that proved inconsequential as we secured our 12th top-flight win of the campaign.

We, sitting fifth in the table, capitalised on our North London rivals Arsenal losing at Fulham as we have moved to within one point of them in fourth, while our slim title aspirations remain alive as we only sit six points adrift of leaders Liverpool heading into the second half of the season.

Before locking horns with Manchester United at Old Trafford in our next top-flight match, we shift our focus to the FA Cup and will endeavour to progress beyond the third round for the 17th time in the last 18 seasons.

We will be confident of success on Friday as we have won 10 and drawn one of their last 11 home meetings with Burnley in all competitions, while we have also come out on top in five of our previous seven FA Cup ties against the Clarets, most recently winning 4-2 on home soil in the third round in 2014-15.


Burnley
This time last year, Burnley were sitting pretty at the top of the Championship table and on course to run away with the title in impressive fashion. Now, the Clarets find themselves embroiled in a Premier League relegation scrap having lost 15 of their first 20 top-flight games this term.

Kompany was left frustrated with 'soft' decisions that cost his Burnley side at least a point in last weekend's 3-2 defeat at title-hopefuls Aston Villa, a game in which the Clarets were controversially denied a penalty for a handball after Berge has been sent off for two bookable offenses.

Douglas Luiz ultimately condemned Burnley to a gut-wrenching defeat when he converted an 89th-minute penalty, and Kompany's side subsequently remain 19th in the Premier League table with just 11 points, five points adrift of safety.
A potentially pivotal top-flight showdown with Luton Town is on the horizon for Burnley, but they must first turn their attention to the FA Cup, a competition in which they reached the quarter-finals last season for the first time in two decades before losing to eventual winners Manchester City.


Burnley enter Friday's contest having only won three of their last 15 away games in the FA Cup, while they last celebrated success against us back in January 1983 when they won 4-1 in the League Cup under former boss Brian Miller, who also reached the final as a player with the Clarets back in 1962.

Head-to-Head

We first played each other Saturday 13th January 1906 where we beat them 2-0 in the FA Cup at home. We have gone on to play each other 123 times where we have won 53, they have won 42 and there have been 28 drawn games.

League: We have won 43, they have won 37 and there have been 25 drawn games.
