Tottenham will be looking for a fresh start when they host Burnley on Wednesday in the FA Cup third round replay.
Spurs had enjoyed an undefeated streak of seven games in all competitions before losing 2-1 at Crystal Palace at the weekend. Nacer Chadli – Tottenham’s scorer in the 1-1 draw away to Burnley last week – was disappointed to see the North London-based club’s run come to an end, but is hoping Wednesday will be a great opportunity to get back into winning gear.
“I thought we were in control at 1-0 against Palace but after the penalty we were not in the game anymore and that’s a big disappointment for everyone,” he told the club’s official website.
“Like we did before, after a loss we have to make things clear again and make a fresh start – and that’s what we going to do.”
Burnley have spent most of this season so far near the bottom of the table, but their draw against Tottenham last week, followed by a 2-1 win over QPR, could be a sign of things to come. As well as persistently trying to ensure their survival in the Premier League, the Clarets will be fighting to keep their Cup run alive.
“The next clutch of games are important but none more so than the next one which is Tottenham away,” midfielder Scott Arfield told the Burnley official website.
“It’s the FA Cup and that’s what you want to be involved in so we certainly won’t be going down there to make up the numbers.
“It’s no less important than Saturday’s win so we’ll go there and try to win.”
Tottenham will be without Erik Lamela as he recovers from a calf problem and Ryan Mason who remains absent due to injury. Nabil Bentaleb will also be unavailable as he is playing with Algeria in the Africa Cup of Nations.
Burnley remain without Kevin Long, Matthew Taylor and Stephen Ward when they head to White Hart Lane for Wednesday’s replay.
