Stan Collymore predicts Tottenham v Burnley clash
By Dominic Toner
Stan Collymore has predicted Tottenham to record a 1-1 draw in their Premier League match against Burnley.
Spurs travel to Turf Moor on Saturday for a league clash as domestic football resumes after the international break.
The north London club are second in the league table and are looking in a strong position to secure a Champions League spot this season.
They have won their last four consecutive games across all competitions and are coping well without the injured Harry Kane.
Meanwhile, Burnley have managed to avoid a relegation battle this season and are 13th in the standings, with their home form playing a crucial role.

Spurs managed to get the better of Burnley in the previous meeting this season as they won 2-1 at White Hart Lane.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side have been in sensational form at home, but have only picked up two points in their last three away league games.
They will be looking to improve that statistic at the weekend and close the 10-point cap on league leaders Chelsea.
Spurs still have an outside shot of challenging the runaway leaders for the title if they go on a sensational run, but will be more concerned about stretching the seven-point gap over fifth-placed Manchester United.
Pochettino’s men endured a frustrating time in European competitions this season and will be looking for some revenge in the next campaign.
