After a disappointing beginning to life at their new home, Spurs will be hoping they can get off the mark when they take on Burnley at the National Stadium. Despite a good performance against Chelsea, Spurs ended up on the wrong end of the score line, and as a result pressure will continue to build on Mauricio Pochettino’s side until they can get that first elusive win at Wembley to relieve the pressure.

Spurs will also be hoping that star striker Harry Kane is able to find the net to end his August drought. The striker had 8 shots in the game against Chelsea (the most he has had in one single Premier League game) however he was unable to find the net, and he will be hoping to kick-start his and Spurs campaign this Sunday.

Visitors Burnley also have started the season with one win and one loss and will be hoping to follow their fine performance away at Chelsea, where they equalled the amount of away wins they got in the whole of last season. However The Clarets also come into the game off of the back of a loss at home to ten man West Brom.

Burnley will be disappointed with the result despite dominating large parts of the game, having 68% possession and some 20 shots on goal.  Burnley will be hoping their fortunes change after the ‘club record’ addition of former Leeds United striker Chris Wood, has bolstered their attack. The 25-year-old scored 44 goals in 88 appearances after joining the Championship side from Leicester City in July 2015.

Prediction: 3-1.
