Tottenham Hotspur secured 4th place after beating Manchester City 1-0 at Eastlands last night.

The pressure is therefore off when they visit Turf Moor for the last game of the season on Sunday 9th May.

Spurs however will be keen to finish in 3rd spot if they can, above their local North London rivals, Arsenal.

If they beat the Clarets and Arsenal lose to Fulham at the Emirates on Sunday they will leap frog the Gunners and finish third in the Barclays Premier League.

The Clarets in comparison are already relegated although there is still a financial incentive to win.

Should Liverpool defeat Hull at the KC Stadium this Sunday and we defeat Spurs, we will go above Hull and reap an additional £800,000 or so for finishing third from bottom.

ESPN were probably hoping there was more to play for and that Spurs would still need the three points to finish 4th.

Nevertheless they will now be televising the game live and for once there will be no change to the fixture date or kick-off time which remains at 4pm.
