Harry Kane features in Tottenham’s starting eleven for the first time since injuring his ankle against Millwall in the FA Cup last month.

Spurs have won every match since Kane’s injury, but his return is undoubtedly a boost as the hosts look to close the gap on leaders Chelsea to four points. The striker replaces Vincent Janssen, who drops to the bench.

Elsewhere, Mauricio Pochettino has made one other change to the team that beat Watford 4-0 last weekend at White Hart Lane — Kyle Walker replaces Kieran Trippier at right-back.

That means Eric Dier will partner Mousa Dembele in central midfield, dropping into a back three when needed. Victor Wanyama is fit again after a back injury, and is among the substitutes.

Dier’s move to midfield means there is a place for Heung-Min Son in the front line. The South Korean has scored three times in his last two appearances, including a brilliant brace against Watford.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to Kane’s return and all the team news.
