Spurs will be looking to move into the top four on Sunday afternoon as they host relegation-battling Burnley in the Premier League.
An emphatic 3-0 win over north London rivals Arsenal saw Spurs keep their top-four hopes alive on Thursday night. Two goals from Harry Kane and a third from Heung-Min Son confirmed the three points, leaving Spurs just one point behind Arsenal in fourth with two games to go.
A win for Spurs against Burnley on Sunday would put the Lilywhites ahead of Arsenal in the league, with the Gunners in action on Monday night against Newcastle. Cristian Romero missed the north London derby, and the Argentine is set to be absent once again for Antonio Conte's side.

Tottenham v Burnley score predicted by simulation
We predict that Spurs could set up in a 3-4-3 formation, with their line-up as follows: Lloris; Sanchez, Dier, Davies; Royal, Bentancur, Hojbjerg, Sessegnon; Kulusevski, Kane, Son.
We predict that Burnley could set up in a 4-4-2 formation, with their line-up as follows: Pope; Roberts, Collins, Long, Taylor; McNeil, Brownhill, Cork, Lennon; Weghorst, Cornet.
Like their 3-0 win over Arsenal, Spurs started the game in control and were good creating chances. Conte's side took the lead 15 minutes in when Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg found the net from distance.
Kane received the ball inside the box and turned to the right before reversing the ball back into the centre for Hojbjerg to meet. The midfielder hit a fierce first-time effort, firing into the top corner and leaving Nick Pope with no chance.
Spurs were in full control, but a mistake at the back proved costly, and Burnley levelled the score. Davinson Sanchez was dispossessed by Maxwell Cornet on the halfway line, and the Burnley forward ran through on goal, firing past Hugo Lloris one-on-one.
The goal seemed to dampen the atmosphere around the ground, but Spurs continued to press and attempt to re-find their lead. Just on the stoke of half time, the Lilywhites found the goal they needed, with Hojbjerg grabbing his second of the game.
Spurs caught the Clarets on the counter after Rodrigo Bentancur intercepted a loose pass, with Son leading the attack. The South-Korean international cut onto his right and found Hojbjerg in support, and almost identically to the first, the Danish midfielder found the top corner again with a thunderous effort.
Despite their control, Burnley found themselves getting in some good positions in the second half, with Lloris having to make some big saves to maintain the lead. Ashley Barnes was introduced for the visitors for the final 10 minutes, and he poached a goal for his side with six minutes to go.
Dwight McNeil shuffled past Ryan Sessegnon and Ben Davies on the wing before drilling the ball into the feet of Barnes inside the box. With his back to goal, the striker turned onto his left and curled a precise shot into the bottom corner to make it 2-2.
The goal was a big blow for Spurs, but a massive goal for Burnley in their relegation battle. Pope made a handful of incredible saves to deny Kane and Dejan Kulusevski late on as Spurs dropped two important points.
