Harry Kane out to set new Premier League record against Burnley

Harry Kane aims to make Premier League history as Tottenham Hotspur prepare to welcome Burnley to North London for Sunday's battle.

Tottenham Hotspur attacker Harry Kane will be out to set a new Premier League record when the Lilywhites welcome Burnley to North London for Sunday's top-flight battle.

The England skipper ensured that he would not go three games without a goal against Arsenal with a clinical brace in Thursday's crucial 3-0 derby victory.

Kane struck from the penalty spot before peeling away at the back post to head home his side's second - his 14th and 15th goals of the Premier League season.

The 28-year-old has now amassed a total of 181 strikes in the competition, with 70 of those strikes coming on Saturdays and 69 on Sundays.

A slice of English football history is therefore on the line for Kane this weekend, as he could become the first player ever to score 70 Premier League goals on two different days of the week.

Kane's recent record against Burnley makes for pleasant reading as he aims to create Premier League history, with the striker contributing to 11 goals in his last 11 top-flight meetings with the Clarets.

The England captain has also made the net ripple seven times in his last seven games with Burnley, although he drew a blank in a 1-0 Turf Moor defeat back in February.

Furthermore, Kane has found the back of the net in both of his last home games with the Clarets, and not since the 1974-75 campaign have the Lilywhites suffered a league home defeat to Burnley.

While Kane now boasts 15 goals and eight assists in 35 Premier League games after recovering from a slow start to the season, his exploits were not enough to see him nominated for the Premier League's Player of the Season award.

However, Kane's contributions have helped Tottenham cut the gap to fourth-placed Arsenal down to just one point, and fourth spot will be theirs temporarily with at least a point against Mike Jackson's side.

Arsenal will seek to restore order during Monday's clash with Newcastle United, and manager Antonio Conte has been dealt another injury blow ahead of the meeting with Burnley.

Cristian Romero was absent from the North London derby due to a hip injury, and Conte has now conceded that the Argentine defender will not return before the campaign concludes.

Romero joins fellow long-term absentees Oliver Skipp, Japhet Tanganga, Matt Doherty and Sergio Reguilon on the sidelines, and Spurs will round off their campaign against Norwich City following Sunday's clash with the Clarets.
