Harry Kane

Tottenham fans react as Harry Kane starts vs Burnley

Tottenham vs Burnley

Tottenham play host to Burnley in Saturday’s early kick-off.

Spurs head into the game on a fine run of form having won their last four league outings.

Tottenham’s latest game also saw them smash German outfit Borussia Dortmund 3-0 in the Champions League.

Also, with Man City playing in the League Cup final and Liverpool away to Manchester United, Saturday’s game vs Burnley is a great chance for Mauricio Pochettino’s side to close the gap on top spot.

However, Burnley at home will be no easy test. Especially given the Clarets are unbeaten in their last five league games.

Harry Kane starts

Given Burney will likely prove a tough test, Spurs will be glad to have their star man back.

Harry Kane has missed Spurs last four league games due to an injury he suffered at the beginning of the year.

With Kane injured, Heung-Min Son has stepped up to be Tottenham’s main attacking threat.

However, having Kane back will be a huge boost given he had scored 14 and assisted four in the league prior to his injury.

Tottenham’s starting eleven to face Burnley can be seen below.
