Tottenham's season is in danger of being derailed and manager Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping for a positive response when they face an in-form Burnley side this evening.
Burnley find themselves one position ahead of Spurs in the table as the two sides have experienced contrasting fortunes in recent games.
Tottenham are winless in five away from home, while Burnley have won their last two games and only lost one of their last eight at home.
Man City inflicted a 4-1 defeat on Spurs last weekend to leave Spurs 21 points behind the league leaders and extinguish any faint title hopes.
Pochettino will know points today could be vital as his side navigate through the congested Christmas fixture period and aim to solidify a position in the top four.

After shipping four goals last weekend Spurs will be boosted by the return of Davinson Sanchez from suspension to central defence. his return should allow Eric Dier to return to a more familiar midfield role.
Ben Davies is likely to return to the side in place of Danny Rose, as the latter still struggles to regain his first-team place.
Toby Alderweireld (hamstring) and Victor Wanyama (knee) remain out for Spurs.
