Tottenham XI vs Burnley: Starting lineup, confirmed team news, injury latest today

Tottenham have one fresh injury concern ahead of this afternoon’s Premier League visit to Burnley, with Giovani Lo Celso ruled out with a quad strain sustained in the Carabao Cup defeat to Fulham.

After making nine changes at Craven Cottage, Spurs head coach Ange Postecoglou has more or less reverted to the XI which earned 2-0 wins over Manchester United and Bournemouth.

Richarlison opened his account for the season with a goal against the Cottagers and recovered from an ankle knock, but makes way today as Heung-min Son leads the line with Manor Solomon on the wing.


The Brazilian faces fresh competition from new signing Brennan Johnson, who has not been registered in time to play in this game.

Asked about Richarlison's goal ahead of the game, Postecoglou said: “I guess it stops people talking about the fact that he didn’t score. I was happy with his contribution.

“He probably wasn't at the same level as in the other three games but he gets a goal and people will focus on the goal. But I'm still looking at his contribution to the team and thinking about what Richy needs to do for us to keep improving as a team.

“But he's not the only one, all of them are in that boat. But anything that gives a player confidence is great, particularly for strikers - I get that. Because obviously that's what people focus on. But I wasn’t unhappy with Richy before he scored a goal.”

Rodrigo Bentancur (ACL), Ryan Sessegnon (hamstring) and Bryan Gil (groin) remain long-term absentees.
