Burnley Team News   
Burnley should have Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Robbie Brady back after injury, but midfielder Steven Defour remains on the sidelines and will see a specialist to try to solve his persistent calf problems. The Belgian midfielder returned to the side in September having been out for nine months with a knee injury, but has managed only eight appearances since. Winger Aaron Lennon remains sidelined by a knee injury suffered in the away match against his former club Spurs in December, but is making good progress.

Tottenham Hotspurs Team News   
Pochettino will be the one who has the final say on whether Harry Kane will play at Turf Moor. Kane is back in training following an ankle injury which has kept him out of his club's last seven games and could return on Saturday lunchtime. That leaves only Dele Alli in the Spurs treatment room as the England international continues to recover from a hamstring injury, while Danny Rose will be assessed as he has been laid low with illness.

Pochettino's View   
“The key for us is to be available to fight for every action. “Burnley are doing a fantastic job, they are going to challenge us and in the way they play, they are so aggressive and we need to match that aggression and try to play in the way we normally play. “So, for me, the key is to match them in the way they play, they are aggressive, they challenge you and if we are capable of matching them in that aspect I think it will be 50 per cent of our job done. “They have a very good squad and I respect Sean Dyche a lot. He’s doing a great job. It’s always tough to play against a team that’s so well organised and away from home, it’s difficult. But we trust in ourselves and we are going there to try to win the three points because for us, it would be a massive victory."

I would have bitten your hand off for a 1-0 win at half time.

I was happy with 0-0 and get Kane back for the second leg. To say I'm buzzing..

Harry Winks has really stepped up his game recently. Maybe he wasn't as fit before due to his injury but he seems to be able to cover ground better and defend better. Great to see

Winks has been great recently. A real driving force in midfield. Thought he was great again tonight. He's matured so much.
