Tottenham are ninth in the Premier League table with nine points separating them from the top four following a mere 10 wins and eight losses in 24 matches.
Spurs possess the joint-least clinical attack in the league's top 10 as they have only managed to score 37 goals; same as Everton.
The north Londoners have lost five of their last six top-flight games, winning once in the process, which is more than they had in their previous 28 in the competition.
Since beating rivals Arsenal 2-0 in December, Tottenham have taken just 12 points from 13 Premier League games – only struggling Newcastle, Sheffield United and West Bromwich Albion have taken fewer in that time

Tottenham and Burnley's first ever encounter took place way back in 1906 in an FA Cup matchthat the north Londoners won 2-0 at home.
Since then, the two clubs have faced off a total of 118 times with Spurs picking up a small majority of 49 wins, compared to the Clarets' 41.
Jose Mourinho's men enjoyed their latest victory over Burnley in October's away fixture when they won 1-0 thanks to Son Heung-min's winner at Turf Moor.
The visitors are set for a daunting task as they haven't won at Tottenham since 1983, losing eight out of nine matches across all competitions in the process
And who can forget that beauty from Son…?

GOOD AFTERNOON FROM TOTTENHAM
Welcome to our live coverage of the Premier League clash between Tottenham and Burnley at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Spurs are ready to welcome Serge Aurier back as he has overcome a calf injury that made him miss the last four matches.
Giovani Lo Celso has also returned to full training after a long ordeal with a hamstring injury but won't be fit for another two weeks.
Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho said: "Serge is fine, he's fine. Trained today with the team without any limitations. As I was saying, everybody is training with the team and Gio is the only one that is not in conditions to play this weekend.
"I think even next week will be quite premature for not to say impossible, but he's coming. Today for the first time in a long time, the medical department could watch the draw as they didn't have any players inside."
Burnley have received an injury boost of their own thanks to a week between games as Chris Wood and Dale Stephens have returned to training.
Jay Rodriguez has also managed to overcome a knock of his own and could be in contention for the clash against Tottenham.
But Robbie Brady and Ashley Barnes remain sidelined with an Achilles and thigh injury respectively while Johann Berg Gudmundsson is also unlikely to feature due to a groin strain – Erik Pieters has been described as "touch and go" by manager Sean Dyche
