Ahead of Sunday’s Premier League fixture between Tottenham Hotspur and Burnley at White Hart Lane, Shoot! decided to turn to FIFA 17 in a bid to predict the scoreline.

Spurs, who eased past struggling Hull City 3-0 in midweek, have suffered inconsistent form of late in the top-flight as Mauricio Pochettino’s side fall adrift of the top four.

Meanwhile the Clarets, who suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat to the hands of West Ham United at the London Stadium on Wednesday night, came into the weekend five points clear of the drop zone following their promotion from the Championship last term.

However, it was Sean Dyche’s visitors who took all three points upon their trip to North London, with Burnley completing a terrific comeback to defeat Tottenham 2-1 in their own back yard.

Midfielder Christian Eriksen had fired Spurs in front after just nine minutes, beating goalkeeper Tom Heaton at his near post following Eric Dier’s through ball.

But just after the hour-mark, striker Andre Gray coolly slotted away a one-on-one opportunity with Tottenham shot stopper Hugo Lloris to draw Burnley level, before fellow forward Sam Vokes netted the late winner in the 83rd minute.

Claret comeback!
