Stan Collymore predicts Tottenham v Burnley
By Harvey Byrne
Stan Collymore has backed Tottenham to pick up a 3-0 over Burnley at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.
The north London club are preparing to face the 13th placed Clarets after picking up a 3-0 victory over Hull in midweek.
It is a match that Spurs are strongly expected to win with 13 points and eight places currently separating Mauricio Pochettino’s side from the Lancashire outfit.
Outspoken pundit Collymore has sided with the favourites, predicting an easy home win on his personal Twitter account on Friday.
WBA 2 Man United 2. Bournemouth 2 Saints 2. Man City 1 Arsenal 1. Spurs 3 Burnley 0.

They will be targeting a finish in the top four after last season’s third placing and just three points separate them from Manchester City in fourth.
By contrast, Sean Dyche’s men are looking to win the battle at the other end of the table after winning promotion last season.
They will be pleased with their current place in the table, but a bad run of form could see them drop down quite drastically with just five points separating them from the relegation zone.
Tottenham last met Burnley in the league in April 2015 in a dull 0-0 draw at Turf Moor.
