Paul Merson predicts the outcome of Tottenham Hotspur vs Burnley

Paul Merson - All Stars XI

Tottenham Hotspur host Burnley in the Premier League at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson predicted the outcome of Tottenham vs Burnley on Sunday, highlighting the Clarets poor away form as something that could prove to be a major factor in what he believes will be a comfortable home win, when writing his column for Sky Sports.

Spurs seem to have got their season back on track after two Premier League wins in their last three outings, and now have a fantastic opportunity of putting together the run of victories that they desperately need, in order to re-assert themselves back into the title race.

Sean Dyche's men, on the other hand, need the win for entirely different reasons, as hey sit precariously just five points clear of the relegation zone.

And Merson explained why he can see nothing other than a home win for Mauricio Pocehttino's men on Sunday, when writing his column for Sky Sports:

"I have seen a lot of Burnley this season, and they just can't get going away from home. It is a different story at home, but on the road they haven't been at it. I don't know what it is, as they will give anyone a game at home. Tottenham looked much better the other night and have Harry Kane back and playing well. Nothing other than a Tottenham win here."

Prediction 3-0

Spurs could actually move back inside the top-four with a win against the Clarets, but will be relying on their fierce rivals Arenal to beat Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium, if they are to have any chance of doing so.
