Harry Kane 'is an animal' says Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino ahead of striker's return

Tottenham forward Harry Kane has returned from injury to start against Burnley in today's Premier League tie.

Kane was forced out of action for seven weeks after sustaining an ankle injury in last month's defeat by Manchester United.

The England captain was initially set to be absent until March but the forward has made a quicker than expected recovery.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino has made two changes to the side that beat Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.

Danny Rose also returns to the starting XI, with Davinson Sanchez and Lucas Moura dropping out of the side.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche names an unchanged team to the one which won 3-1 at Brighton two weeks ago.

Tom Heaton skippers the side, while Robbie Brady and Johann Berg Gudmundsson return to the bench.
