With Kane a naturally fit man and apparently a quick healer, manager Mauricio Pochettino had no hesitation in putting his top scorer straight back in. The 23-year-old dusted himself down from a couple of hefty challenges and showed no ill effects from the ankle problem, lasting the full 90 minutes of a high-tempo encounter.

Never in question. Kane gave the ball away in deep midfield but tracked his opponent and won it straight back. At one stage he even popped up in the left-back spot to make a clearance and was straight up the field waiting for the ball to find him on the edge of the Burnley box.

Goal threat

Kane worked himself a shooting opportunity in the 15th minute and fired narrowly wide.
