Harry Kane has insisted that Tottenham Hotspur must put the disappointing defeat to Burnley behind them.

The striker returned to action yesterday after more than a month out injured with ankle ligament damage and despite scoring, could not help but see his side lose 2-1.

The defeat has severely dented the club’s chances of winning the Premier League title this season with three points having been valuable to pile the pressure on Liverpool and Manchester City.

Kane admitted that it is the type of game which Spurs should be winning against opposition from the lower end of the table.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are back in action on Wednesday evening when they make the short trip to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea, followed by the North London derby against Arsenal at Wembley on Saturday.

Rather than wallow in pity, Kane is instead focusing on the Chelsea match to get his side back on track.

Kane told the official Spurs site: “It’s very disappointing,”

“It was one of those games, a tough battle, a dry pitch, we know how Burnley play, especially at home and it was physical.

“We did well to get back into it at 1-1 but we couldn’t find the next level to push on and get the win and then unfortunately we conceded again.

“It’s a game we should be winning. We had time off, so we were fresh and we expected to come here and step it up a level and give it a massive push for the rest of the season. Now it puts us behind and in a tough position. It’s a big week to come and we have to move on as best we can.”

“It’s a big period for us and we know we are more than capable of winning these games,” he added.

“Burnley was disappointing but we have to move on and it’s a big game against Chelsea next.”
