Tottenham’s New Year’s Day annihilation of Chelsea will live long in the memory, but Harry Kane’s only focus now is overcoming Burnley in the FA Cup.

Spurs brought in 2015 in unforgettable style, thrashing their London rivals 5-3 in a wonderful game at White Hart Lane.

Kane was the star of the show, netting a brace and assisting two more, but the fans’ favourite is now fully-focused on progressing from the FA Cup third round.

Burnley stand in their way and, while Spurs overcame beat them 2-1 just two weeks ago, the England Under-21s international is expecting a tough time at Turf Moor on Monday.

“We all enjoyed the win against Chelsea but we won’t get carried away,” Kane said.

“We’ll keep our feet on the ground and look forward to this game.

“We want to do well in all competitions and Burnley away will be a tough tie for us.

“Burnley are a good side, played well at White Hart Lane and they’ve enjoyed some good results recently. It will be difficult for us, without a doubt.”

Mauricio Pochettino will be without Nabil Bentaleb against Burnley as the midfielder has jetted off to the African Nations Cup with Algeria.

Ryan Mason is a doubt with a hamstring injury sustained just 11 minutes into the win against Chelsea and Erik Lamela could again be absent with a calf complaint.
