Mourinho on ‘amazing’ Dyche

“He is doing amazing. I think he has the power to decide to make decisions, to choose the players in relation to what the club can give him, in relation to his philosophy,” Mourinho said.

“He knows the profile of football he wants to play, the profile of team he wants to have. He knows how to get the number of points that season after season after season – they keep them always far from the dangerous position.

“Don’t forget they qualified for the Europa League. Just amazing work he is doing, good professional. I am very pleased for the work he is doing.”

Prediction:

Tottenham are struggling domestically, yet I think they will find their way against Burnley. Sean Dyche’s side can defend effectively but cannot compete with Spurs’ firepower. 2-0 Tottenham.
