Harry Kane says Tottenham cannot afford to dwell on Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Burnley ahead of a tough run of games.

The England captain made his return from injury at Turf Moor and grabbed Spurs’ equaliser after Chris Wood had put the Clarets ahead but Ashley Barnes struck late on to deny the visitors a share of the spoils.

Spurs travel to Chelsea on Wednesday and entertain Arsenal next Saturday before they head to Germany for the second leg of their Champions League last 16 tie with Borussia Dortmund.

Kane says the loss at Burnley was a disappointment, but stressed his side have to respond as they look to keep the pressure on the top two, Manchester City and Liverpool, as well as continuing their bid for European glory.

He told the club website: “We did well to get back into it at 1-1 but we couldn’t find the next level to push on and get the win and then unfortunately we conceded again.

“It’s a game we should be winning. We had time off, so we were fresh and we expected to come here and step it up a level and give it a massive push for the rest of the season.

Now it puts us behind and in a tough position. It’s a big week to come and we have to move on as best we can.” He added:

“It’s a big period for us and we know we are more than capable of winning these games.

Burnley was disappointing but we have to move on and it’s a big game against Chelsea next.”

Spurs are 15.00 to win the Champions League outright and 3.00 to overcome Chelsea on Wednesday.
