Boost for Spurs as Harry Kane set to return from injury early

Harry Kane could return to action for Spurs as early as this weekend after resuming to training earlier than expected.

The striker, who injured his ankle during the 1-0 home defeat to Manchester United on 13 January, is reportedly going to be available for selection against Burnley this weekend, according to the BBC.

While the injury was viewed as a setback for the north London outfit at the time, Tottenham Hotspur have in fact gone on to win all of their Premier League fixtures without Kane, and last week demolished Borussia Dortmund 3-0 in the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie.

Although Spurs have been eliminated from both domestic cup competitions in the same period, the side have kept themselves in contention in both Europe and the Premier League, both of which they could realistically make a real push for now that their talisman is returning sooner than expected.

The initial prognosis had Kane missing out until March at the earliest, meaning his early return will be a massive boost to a thin squad, although the England captain does have a history of returning earlier than expected from injuries and later aggravating them again.

With any luck for Spurs and the national team that is not the case here and Kane will remain fit until the end of the campaign to add to his tally of 20 goals for the season.

Tottenham are currently third in the league table, five points behind joint leaders Liverpool and Manchester City.
