Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to react to the team announcement for this afternoon’s match against Burnley.
Mauricio Pochettino has decided to start Harry Kane for the Premier League clash at Turf Moor.
The striker has been out of action since damaging ankle ligaments in the last few moments of the 1-0 defeat to Manchester United on January 13th.
Some had speculated that the forward would instead be at least named among the subs ahead of Wednesday’s London derby against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge but comes into the starting eleven in place of Lucas Moura.
The other change sees Danny Rose who was doubtful due to illness start in place of Davinson Sanchez.
Heung-min Son will be looking to continue his rich vein of form having scored eight goals in his last eight Premier League appearances for Tottenham, netting in each of his last three in a row. He last scored in four consecutive top-flight appearances in April 2017.
Here’s some reaction from your fellow Spurs fans.
He starts! ?
There it is – the team that will take us (temporarily, at least) two points off the top! #COYS

Kane? Really hope he does not aggravate his injury. Don’t think we needed him to start today. #TrustPoch
