Mike Jackson has done a sterling job in caretaker charge after the departure of Sean Dyche, and a win against top-four chasing Spurs would be a significant boost to the club’s hopes of staying up.
With three fixtures in the final seven days of the season, Burnley have a game in hand on Leeds, who sit level on points with Jackson’s side.
Their hosts, meanwhile, also need a win to climb above Arsenal, who do not play until Monday night and remain in pole position for a Champions League place despite derby defeat on Thursday.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the fixture:
When and where is it?
Tottenham vs Burnley will kick-off at 12pm BST on Sunday 15 May at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Cristian Romero missed Tottenham’s win over Arsenal after suffering a hip injury, and is a major doubt. Sergio Reguilon, Oliver Skipp, Japhet Tanganga and Matt Doherty will not play again this season.
Burnley are facing something of an end-of-season injury crisis, with Matej Vydra joining Ben Mee,Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Ashley Westwood on the sidelines, with Jay Rodriguez yet to return from hamstring bother. Though Maxwell Cornet and Erik Pieters returned last weekend, there is now also concern over James Tarkowski, who was forced off early in the second half against Aston Villa.
Tottenham XI: Lloris; Sanchez, Dier, Davies; Royal, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Sessegnon; Kulusevski, Kane, Son.
Burnley XI: Pope; Roberts, Long, Collins, Taylor; McNeil, Cork, Brownhill, Cornet; Weghorst, Barnes.
