He may have not been able to inspire Tottenham to a victory on Sunday but leading out his boyhood club for the very first time against Burnley was an honour for the in-form Harry Kane.

Twitter reacts to Harry Kane being named Tottenham captain against Burnley
With club captain Younes Kaboul out of favour and vice-captain Hugo Lloris injured, the young striker was chosen by manager Mauricio Pochettino to wear the armband at Turf Moor.
After breaking into the team in November, the 21-year-old has scored 19 times in the league and also capped his international debut for England with a goal against Lithuania.
The striker took to social media afterwards to show his pride at skippering the side and praised a clean sheet:
The goalless draw means Spurs missed the chance to leapfrog Liverpool in the table and are now seven points off the final Champions League spot, with seven games to go.
Barring a miracle run of form from the North London outfit and a complete collapse from one of the teams in the top-four it would appear Spurs are now battling with Liverpool and Southampton for a spot in the Europa League next season.
Next up for Kane and his teammates is a home game against former Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood’s Aston Villa on Saturday.
