Tottenham v Burnley: match preview

Thursday night to Sunday at noon. It is a gruelling turnaround for Tottenham after the emotion of the derby win over Arsenal but they have to find the reserves to produce another high-energy performance. The home crowd must do so, too, although that ought to be easier for them. Otherwise the Arsenal result could be wasted and the club’s Champions League hopes dashed. Burnley have already driven Antonio Conte to distraction once this season. Their survival hopes would soar if they could repeat the prescription. David Hytner
