The England international is making his first Premier League start since March 5 as Mauricio Pochettino's men seek to keep pressure on Chelsea

Harry Kane has returned to the Tottenham starting line-up for their Premier League clash with Bournemouth.

The England international had been out of action for over a month with an ankle injury and made a brief appearance from the substitutes bench in last week's 4-0 win over Watford.

However he has replaced Vincent Janssen in the starting XI and will now attempt to add to his tally of 19 league goals as Spurs aim to keep the pressure on leaders Chelsea.

The England international will be assisted in attack by in-form duo Dele Alli and Heung-min Son. Meanwhile, Kieran Trippier has dropped to the bench as Kyle Walker returns to defence.

A win for Spurs against Bournemouth will see them narrow the gap to Chelsea to just four points ahead of the Blues' crunch clash with Manchester United on Sunday.

Tottenham XI: Lloris, Walker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Davies, Dier, Dembele, Son, Eriksen, Dele, Kane.
