Liverpool legend believes Tottenham goal machine Harry Kane should steer clear of England Under 21 duty

Spurs need a win to keep their top four race alive, sitting eight points below fourth placed Manchester City, who play tomorrow evening away at Crystal Palace.

Burnley, on the other hand, dropped to 19th yesterday after QPR picked up a big away win at West Brom, and are only three points off the bottom spot following Leicester’s impressive victory at home against West Ham. That said, a win would see them climb out of the bottom three, plunging Sunderland and Aston Villa into further trouble.

Golden boy Harry Kane captains Tottenham today on his return from international duty with England and Romanian centre back Vlad Chiriches replacing Jan Vertonghen in the back four, who misses out through illness.

Burnley, name on unchanged side from their disappointing 2-0 loss away at Southampton with Danny Ings and Sam Vokes leading the line, while Norwegian midfielder Fredrik Ulvestad is named on the bench.
