Tottenham Hotspur receive key injury boost ahead of Burnley game

Tottenham Hotspur have received a key injury boost with Harry Kane returning to full training ahead of their Premier League clash against Burnley this weekend.

The England international has been sidelined since the ankle injury picked up against Manchester United in mid-January, but it appears that he could make his return against the Clarets.

According to Sky Sports News, the Three Lions captain could make a comeback ahead of schedule after returning to full training alongside his teammates on Monday.

Originally, Spurs had predicted (Official Twitter account) that the marksman would be returning to complete training in March following an assessment over the damage with the medical team.

However, the striker has since made positive progress in the warm weather training camp in the Caribbean and this was acknowledged by Mauricio Pochettino earlier this month.

Despite the positives, Pochettino may not necessarily rush the striker into the starting lineup and the Englishman could be slowly integrated into the action from the bench.

In the absence of Kane and Dele Alli, Spurs have been knocked out of both the League Cup and FA Cup, and this has certainly hampered their prospects of ending the decade-long trophy drought.

Still, they are within five points off the top of the Premier League table after building up a four-match winning run, while they hold a strong advantage over Borussia Dortmund in the last 16 of the Champions League.

The north London side recently bagged a 3-0 triumph over Dortmund in the first leg at Wembley and they are now favourites to reach the quarter final, barring a shocking performance at Signal Iduna Park next month.
