Burnley visit Spurs in the Premier League this weekend looking to extend their unbeaten run to five top flight matches.
The Clarets sit six points clear of the bottom three but a testing run of fixtures between now and the March international break, and the failure to beat relegation rivals Fulham and West Brom at home in recent weeks, means Sean Dyche's side remain in the relegation picture.
Burnley have not won a league game away at Tottenham in 11 attempts, a run dating back to 1974, but the Clarets have already delivered statement victories at Liverpool and Arsenal this season and another one this weekend would provide a major boost in the battle at the bottom.
Spurs' top flight form has been patchy of late with Jose Mourinho's side having slipped to ninth in the table, although they did progress in the Europa League in midweek.
The visit of Dyche's men is being billed as a must-win for the Tottenham chief who will be wary of Burnley's set piece prowess - an area that has caused issues for Spurs in recent matches.
The Londonders have also been linked with a summer move for Clarets keeper Nick Pope as they seek to strengthen their squad.
Burnley will not want to entertain a sale of one of their key players and we asked Football.London's Spurs reporter Alasdair Gold about the chances of a bid coming plus the game itself and Spurs' form.
What has happened to Spurs' Premier League form in recent weeks and is this a must win?
"They've lost a lot of confidence and the defence, which was the second best in the Premier League this season, has become error-strewn.
"Earlier in the season Spurs were able to outscore their opponents if they conceded, but they have been fluffing their lines in front of goal in the Premier League more often than not in the past couple of months.
"This is definitely a must-win encounter. Spurs face Burnley and Crystal Palace at home, sandwiching a trip to Fulham, and they need to take maximum points from three games that on paper they would be expected to win, if they are to clamber back up towards the top four."
How will Spurs set up and what Burnley threats will they be wary of?
"Tottenham have been less defensive in their outlook in recent matches, which has at least pleased the fans a bit and Gareth Bale has been looking more like his old self.
"The Welshman not being in the starting line-up for the first time in the Europa League this season in midweek suggests he will start on Sunday and he's looked very dangerous in his previous four appearances even if he can't yet start a game every three days.
"Spurs managed to rest many of their key players in midweek and that should help them at the weekend, but they will be wary of Burnley's ability from set pieces as it's been an Achilles' heel for them during this campaign."
Could Jose Mourinho be sacked if Burnley get the win this weekend?
"It would be unlikely. Daniel Levy has chased Mourinho for two decades, wanting him first before he joined Chelsea from Porto so he will give him as much time as possible to justify the decision of relieving Mauricio Pochettino of his duties.
"Tottenham need to get back up the table and while a defeat at home to Burnley would certainly pile the pressure on, it's unlikely to trigger his dismissal."
Spurs have been linked with Nick Pope in recent days, could you see a bid materialising for him and are they on the hunt for a new goalkeeper?
"Spurs are in need of more British players as they have too many foreign players for the limits in European competition.
"They also need to find a successor for 34-year-old Hugo Lloris who has 18 months left on his contract and has previously said he would like to move back to France before his career ends.

"Pope fits the bill but the problem with buying British is that premium on the price and Tottenham will not get involved in an auction.
"They won't spend big money on a player who turns 29 in a couple of months' time. Spurs' transfer model only really sees them spend bigger fees on younger players with re-sale value."
Lastly, Joe Hart left Burnley for Spurs in the summer. How has he settled on and off the pitch in terms of performances and experience/attitude in training.
"He's certainly become a big voice in the dressing room and he's been getting matches in the cup competitions, ousting Paulo Gazzaniga from the number two spot behind Lloris.
"His performances have been solid, nothing spectacular or conversely disastrous, and he's constantly bellowing instructions to his team-mates, whether they're in the defence or at the other end of the pitch.
"Spurs need winners in their dressing room and leaders and Hart has added to that."
