2023/24 English Premier League
Matchday 37
Tottenham Hotspur v Burnley
Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
London, England
Saturday, 11 May 2024
Kick-off is at 14h00  
Tottenham will be desperate to get back on the winning trail when they welcome relegation-threatened Burnley to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday, May 11.
Spurs saw their UEFA Champions League hopes further dented following a 4-2 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield on May 5 which extended their losing streak to five matches.
Ange Postecoglou's side remain seven points adrift of Aston Villa in fifth place with a game in hand, having seen their top-four rivals go down 1-0 to Brighton at the Amex on May 5.
The Clarets are in dire need of three points themselves after a 4-1 loss to Newcastle at Turf Moor on May 4 put them on the brink of making a swift return to the Championship.
Vincent Kompany's side are five points behind Nottingham Forest (17th) in 19th position with a vastly inferior goal difference and their relegation will be confirmed if the Tricky Trees manage to draw with Chelsea on matchday 37.
Forest pulled three points clear of the drop zone with a massive 3-1 victory over basement boys Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on May 4.

In team news, the hosts remain without Destiny Udogie, Ryan Sessegnon, Timo Werner (all thigh), Fraser Forster (ankle), Manor Solomon (knee) and Ben Davies (calf) for the rest of the season. Luca Koleosho (knee) could return for the visitors, but Aaron Ramsey (knee), Jordan Beyer, Nathan Redmond (both thigh), Ameen Al-Dakhil and Maxime Esteve are all ruled out.
Postecoglou was pleased with the performance if not the result against the Reds, admitting the Lilywhites at least showed what they were capable of.
"Obviously a hugely disappointing outcome for us but at least we were more like ourselves today in terms of our football," he told Sky Sports.
"Our last two away games at Newcastle and Chelsea, apart from the results which weren't great either, we just didn't try and play our football.
"I thought today, even in the first half, some of our football, our pressing was back to where it should be."
Kompany is refusing to admit defeat just yet after seeing his players 'fight to the end' against a 'much better' Magpies team.
"Look, we came up against a better side today but there was no lack of effort from our side. We fought hard and the team gave everything, we just couldn't match Newcastle in most areas of the pitch," the Belgian stated.
"I just want to highlight, we never let the game die, okay the score was done but we kept going until the end and kept fighting but fell short to the better team.
"It is what it is, we just have to pick ourselves up and go again next week at Spurs. A result there, and other results going our way, and the picture changes once again."
