4′ Alderweireld appears in a bit of trouble, rushing his headed clearance before the Belgian recovers to head away under the pressure of Lowton inside the hosts’ area.

3′ That was the earliest of Bale’s 44 Premier League goals (01:08).

2′ Son beats Lowton with ease before crossing towards the near post for Bale to open the scoring.

2′ GOALLLL!!! 1-0 SPURS! Son is offered far too much room to cut inside from the left, whipping a low cross towards the front post, where Bale beats the offside trap to poke home with his right foot. Burnley think the Welshman was offside but VAR confirms the goal can stand.

1′ Referee Kevin Friend blows his whistle to get this Premier League fixture underway!

The players are wandering out of the tunnel and shortly it will be time for kick-off.

The Clarets are looking for their first away top-flight win against Spurs since October 1974, winning 3-2 under Jimmy Adamson. They’ve lost six of their seven visits since (D1).

Sean Dyche leaves his starting eleven unchanged from their disappointing draw against West Brom. Brownhill continues to operate on the right of midfield, meaning Cork partners Westwood centrally. After missing six matches through injury, Wood is not fit enough to start but does return to the bench.

Jose Mourinho makes 10 changes from the side that cruised past Wolsberger on Wednesday Alderweireld is the only player to keep his spot, Aurier returns from a four-match injury absence and Bale gets a rare start in behind Kane.

SUBS: Bailey Peacock-Farrell, Jimmy Dunne, Josh Benson, Kevin Long, Dale Stephens, Chris Wood, Phil Bardsley, Anthony Driscoll-Glennon, Lewis Richardson.

BURNLEY (4-4-2): Nick Pope; Matthew Lowton, Ben Mee, James Tarkowski, Charlie Taylor; Josh Brownhill, Jack Cork, Ashley Westwood, Dwight McNeil; Jay Rodriguez, Matej Vydra.

SUBS: Matt Doherty, Eric Dier, Carlos Vinicius, Joe Hart, Erik Lamela, Harry Winks, Moussa Sissoko, Dele Alli, Ben Davies.

TOTTENHAM (4-2-3-1): Hugo Lloris; Serge Aurier, Davinson Sanchez, Toby Alderweireld, Sergio Reguilon; Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Tanguy Ndombele; Son Heung-Min, Gareth Bale, Lucas Moura; Harry Kane.

After an incredibly unconvincing performance against 10-man West Brom, the visitors will be looking to bounce back here and further distance themselves from the relegation zone. Tottenham, who crushed Wolfsberger in midweek, sit 10th in the league and have only won one of their last six top-flight fixtures.
