Tottenham Hotspur have been moving on fine while their inspirational captain, Harry Kane was knocked out with injury.

The thinking for many is that once Kane returns, Spurs will boast of more firepower.

And yes though the England captain scored on his return for his club, it was not enough as Tottenham were beaten 2-1 by Burnley on Saturday in the early Premier League kickoff.

Indeed, Spurs’ title hopes have taken a major blow this afternoon as Mauricio Pochettino's side fell to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Burnley at Turf Moor.

Spurs had the chance to close the gap on Manchester City and Liverpool to just two points for 24 hours at least, but goals from Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes - either side of an equaliser from the fit-again Harry Kane - saw the title hopefuls fall to a damaging defeat.

Tottenham remain five points adrift of the leading pair as a result, and that gap could grow to eight when Liverpool take on Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Burnley, meanwhile, remain unbeaten in the Premier League this calendar year and stretch their streak to eight games without defeat to move six points clear of the relegation zone.
