The resident Lilywhites in the Transfer tavern are hoping their side will give them an early Christmas present with a victory over Burnley on Saturday evening.
Tottenham Hotspur’s season hasn’t exactly gone according to plan so far under Mauricio Pochettino as they sit behind their upcoming opponent’s Burnley after 18 games. With all due respect to The Clarets, nobody would have predicted them to be ahead of Tottenham at this stage in the season, but the progress they have shown this season is truly one of the great success stories of the campaign so far.
Last time out, Spurs could do nothing to halt the incredible run of league-leaders Manchester City, as they suffered a crushing 4-1 defeat at The Etihad Stadium.
The Spurs supporters in the tavern are fully expecting their side to bounce back from last weeks defeat and leapfrog Burnley in the Premier League table with a victory at Turf Moor .
Prior to their fixture tomorrow aternoon, the Spurs fans were given a major boost by their club’s Twitter page who reminded them that Davinson Sanchez is once again available for selection this weekend after serving a three-match suspension.

And judging by the response on Twitter, the Tottenham supporters will fancy their chances of keeping a clean sheet against Burnley with Sanchez restored to the heart of their defence.
Here’s what the Tottenham supporters had to say about Sanchez’s return…
Much needed. Welcome back @daosanchez26
