Tottenham Hotspur's final opponents at their state-of-the-art home ground this season are Burnley on Sunday lunchtime.

Only the division's leading duo have won more games or scored more goals on home soil this season. Spurs have been particularly commanding against Burnley with the benefit of home advantage, winning their last three capital meetings with the Clarets by an aggregate score of 10-0.

Here's the XI Antonio Conte may deploy to nudge Tottenham back into the top four by Sunday afternoon.

1. 3-4-3

Hugo Lloris (GK) - The squad's oldest player is also the team's only ever-present this season.Davinson Sanchez (CB) - While his replacement of the injured Romero against Arsenal didn't fill many of a Spurs persuasion with much confidence, the Colombia international managed to assuage most concerns by the end of the game.Eric Dier (CB) - Since shaking off some niggling thigh problems at the start of the year, Dier has played every minute of Tottenham's last 14 Premier League matches.Ben Davies (CB) - The February reverse against Burnley was Davies' first defeat against the Clarets in 12 career meetings.Emerson Royal (RWB) - For the first time in his Premier League career, the deceptively defence-first wingback had more than one shot in the same game against Arsenal in midweek.Rodrigo Bentancur (CM) - The winter arrival from Juventus was hauled off at half-time of Tottenham's last meeting with Burnley. In his absence, Spurs conceded the game's only goal.Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (CM) - The former Southampton skipper has lost four of his six Premier League meetings with Burnley.Ryan Sessegnon (LWB) - Even when Sergio Reguilon was fit, Sessegnon appeared to have nudged himself ahead of the Spaniard in Conte's pecking order. The Spaniard's current injury concerns have all but sealed his starting spot.Dejan Kulusevski (RW) - Since his Spurs debut against Southampton in February, no player in the division can better Kulusevski's tally of eight Premier League assists.Harry Kane (ST) - After a sluggish, sulky start to the season, Kane has well and truly clicked into gear; scoring or assisting a combined 16 goals in his last 14 Premier League appearances.Son Heung-min (LW) - Premier League scorer across a season not called Harry Kane since Emmanuel Adebayor in 2014.
