Harry Kane has again proved he’s a freak of nature by recovering from ankle ligament damage two weeks ahead of schedule.
And Tottenham have suggested their leading man will play against Burnley on Saturday after returning to full training this week.

Kane has missed the last seven Spurs games since limping off the field during their 1-0 defeat to Manchester United at Wembley in mid-January.
And considering they’ve been without their main source of goals, Spurs have more than held their own against the odds.
Apart from cup disappointments, falling to Chelsea and Crystal Palace in the Carabao and FA Cups respectively, they’ve not only consolidated a top four place but actually entered the title picture.
So does Kane come straight into your Dream Team when transfers open for business again on Friday? Here are the pros and cons…
Do we really need to outline Kane’s key strengths?
Before that unfortunate United clash the England captain had either scored or assisted in eight Spurs games in a row. Pretty good, huh?
He’d shot up the Dream Team player charts too, meaning that despite his lengthy absence he still sits just two points behind Salah.
Kane scored a hat-trick against Saturday’s opponents Burnley last season.
Spurs then play Arsenal and Dortmund in the first week of March, two more opponents he loves facing.
Well at £8.5m he’s comfortably the most expensive player on the game, £0.6m ahead of last season’s top points scorer Mo Salah.
That’s nearly two Callum Wilsons.
Also we know we suggested Kane fancies himself against Spurs’ upcoming opponents, but on paper it’s a tricky run of fixtures.
Burnley are on the up, north London derbies are never a given and Chelsea are smarting after a run of shocking results.
Basically it’s a massive few weeks for both Spurs’ title ambitions and the top four race.
If we had to stick our necks on the line, we’d say wait until March transfers become available next week and free up some funds to bring Harry in. He’ll do the rest…
