Harry Kane has said Tottenham are regretting their failure to pick up maximum points against Burnley but has urged his teammates to be ready for the tough week ahead.
Spurs fell to a 2-1 defeat against Burnley despite Kane returning from injury and finding the net at Turf Moor.
Goals from Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes consigned Tottenham to their seventh league defeat of the season – remarkably they are yet to draw a single game.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men travel to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea on Wednesday night before a north London derby against Arsenal at Wembley this weekend.
And Kane, who showed almost no signs of rustiness on his return in Lancashire, has said the team must get over Saturday’s result and be ready for Chelsea and Arsenal.
“Obviously it was a big chance for us to get the three points and get that little bit closer. It’s a shame because, when we needed to find another gear, we didn’t have it in the locker,” Kane said (via Sky Sports).
“We’ve got to be real with ourselves, we’ve got a tough week coming up so we’ve got to dust it off and be ready for that. It was a big opportunity and it’s a shame we couldn’t take it.”
Kane will almost certainly start both games despite playing 90 minutes against Burnley in his first match back from injury.
The 25-year-old will also be needed against Borussia Dortmund next week as Spurs look to kill the European tie off with an away goal.
