• ‘Burnley on Saturday will be like a final,’ says Spurs manager
• Tottenham striker Harry Kane back after ankle injury
Mauricio Pochettino has urged Tottenham’s players to take advantage of the timing that could make this a pivotal weekend in the Premier League title race. Spurs travel to Turf Moor on Saturday with the message from their manager that victory would heap pressure on to Manchester City, otherwise engaged at Wembley on Sunday afternoon, straight after Liverpool’s game at Old Trafford.
City are competing in the Carabao Cup final and Liverpool face a difficult challenge at Manchester United so Pochettino knows there is a chance that Spurs could be within two points of both by the end of the weekend. Spurs have still to play both clubs, moreover, which is why he describes his team’s fixture with Burnley as being like a final – fail to win and the upcoming fixtures against Chelsea and Arsenal will lose some of their appeal.
