Burnley v Tottenham: Five things you need to know ahead of FA Cup clash

Burnley FC - Turf Moor

As Tottenham head to Turf Moor to face Premier League relegation battlers Burnley, we give you five of the statistics that matter ahead of kick-off.

10 – Harry Kane may be the most in-form striker in the Premier League at present with six goals in his last six games, but it’s in cup competitions where he’s proven most prolific.

In a total of 10 appearances in both the Europa League and Capital One Cup so far this term, the 21-year-old has scored exactly 10 times, netting three goals in the League Cup and a further seven in continental competition.

However, just two of these 10 goals have been scored away from White Hart Lane.

£3 million – The amount Burnley paid Scottish side Hibernian for Steven Fletcher back in July 2009 – it remains the club’s record outlay for a player and is exactly a tenth of the £30 million Tottenham paid Roma for Erik Lamela back in the summer of 2013 – Spurs’ record signing to date.

Five – The number of clean sheets recorded by both sides so far this term with Tottenham and Burnley possessing an identical record of four shut-outs at home and one on the road respectively in the top flight so far this term. Spurs have kept a further two clean sheets in the League Cup.

November 8th, 2004 – That was the last time Tottenham beat Burnley at Turf Moor winning 3-0 in a League Cup clash between the sides. Since then the teams have met twice at the ground with Burnley winning on both occasions.

The first victory came in the 2009-10 edition of the League Cup, with Burnley winning the second leg of their semi-final clash 3-2 after extra time, having won the game 3-0 at 90 minutes - a result that, when combined with a 4-1 first-leg loss, resulted in 30 extra minutes being played.

Burnley also beat Tottenham 4-2 at Turf Moor in the Premier League back in May 2010, having been 2-0 down to a Spurs side that featured Luka Modric and Gareth Bale.

24.1 per cent – The proportion of goals scored in the final 15 minutes of games in the Premier League by Tottenham so far this season with seven of the Lilywhite’s 29 top-flight strikes coming during the time between the 75th minute and final whistle.
