Tottenham Hotspur begin their 2023/24 FA Cup campaign at home against fellow Premier League outfit Burnley on Friday night (20:00).

Ange Postecoglou’s side have won four of their last five and have scored at least two goals in each of those matches, netting a total of 13.

Meanwhile, visitors Burnley have lost seven of their last 10 trips to Premier League sides across all competitions.

Tottenham vs Burnley Prediction

  • Spurs to win and over 2.5 goals @ EVS
  • Richarlison to score anytime @ 6/5

Team News

Ivan Perisic, Cristian Romero, James Maddison, Micky van de Ven, Ryan Sessegnon, Manor Solomon and Alejo Veliz are all ruled out due to injury, while Son Heung-min is unavailable due to playing in the Asian Cup for South Korea.

Dejan Kulusevski will return from suspension but Yves Bissouma and Pape Matar Sarr are also on international duty.

As for Burnley, Lucas Koleosho, Jordan Beyer, Hjalmar Ekdal and Jack Cork on the treatment table, while Sander Berge is suspended following his dismissal last weekend.

Match Odds

Due to this being a cup tie, 90-minute betting applies.

Spurs are 4/9 to win, Burnley are 9/2 and the draw is 7/2.

Spurs won 5-2 when the sides last met, and a repeat of that scoreline is 66/1, while both teams to score is priced up at 4/6.

Spurs to win and over 2.5 goals (90 mins) @ EVS

Burnley are winless in their last 11 trips to Spurs, losing 10 during that run, and look set to have no luck against a side that have progressed from this stage in 16 of the last 17 seasons.

In addition, eight of the last 10 meetings between sides at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium have seen over 2.5 goals and I believe the same should be expected here.

Six of Burnley's last nine games have gone over 2.5 goals, too, and the home side have scored at least two goals in each of their past five outings.


Richarlison to score anytime (90 mins) @ 6/5

Going into Friday night’s FA Cup tie against Burnley, the Brazilian has six goals and three assists in 12 Premier League starts this season — not bad going for a player who was struggling with his movement from the start of the campaign and had surgery on a niggling pelvic issue in November.

In more recent times, Richarlison has scored five goals in his last five matches and, with regular talisman Son Heung-min away at the Asian Cup with South Korea, the Brazilian forward could get even more opportunities to get himself on the scoresheet here.

Four of the Brazilian's last five goals have come at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, and he's scored three goals in 11 appearances against Burnley across all competitions, so I think he's a decent shout for anytime goalscorer on Friday.
