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

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.
