Confirmed: Burnley v Tottenham lineups - Chiriches and Paulinho start

Here is how Burnley and Tottenham will line up for today's game at Turf Moor.

Burnley host Tottenham this afternoon in a crucial game as the Clarets bid to survive in the Premier League.

Sean Dyche's men remain just one point off Premier League safety, but QPR's win over West Bromwich Albion yesterday has put the pressure on Burnley to get a result against Tottenham this afternoon.

Burnley have already sprung one shock at Turf Moor recently, beating Manchester City 1-0, but Dyche's men need to do it again against Spurs today.

It's a fairly familiar side for Burnley today, but Dyche has named three strikers in his team with Ashley Barnes, Danny Ings and Sam Vokes all starting the game.

For Tottenham, Mauricio Pochettino needs a win to keep Spurs' faint hopes of making the top four alive.

Tottenham are currently eight points adrift of fourth placed Manchester United, so claiming all three points is paramount for Spurs.

Fringe players like Michel Vorm, Vlad Chiriches and Paulinho all start for Spurs today, and will be looking to impress in their rare chances to shine.
