Kane quandary for Tottenham; defender laid low by illness

Date published: Friday 22nd February 2019 10:50

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino will decide whether to use Harry Kane at Burnley, but another Spurs star could be missing.

The England captain has returned to training after a seven-game absence for Spurs with an ankle injury.

Dele Alli (hamstring) remains injured but is nearing a return, while Danny Rose will be assessed as he has been laid low with illness.

Should Rose be sidelined then Jan Vertonghen may fill in again at left-back or left wing-back, depending on Pochettino’s chosen formation, after excelling in the win over Borussia Dortmund.

Provisional squad: Lloris, Gazzaniga, Trippier, Alderweireld, Aurier, Sanchez, Rose, Dier, Walker-Peters, Sissoko, Foyth, Winks, Moura, Eriksen, Skipp, Son, Lamela, Llorente, Kane.
