Tottenham confirmed line-up v Bournemouth: 22-year-old axed in two changes
By Danny Wright
Tottenham have confirmed that Harry Kane will return to the starting line-up against Bournemouth on Saturday.
The club’s top goalscorer makes a full return from injury in two changes, which sees Vincent Janssen axed to the bench.
The 22-year-old started in Tottenham’s 4-0 victory against Watford but failed to find the net and was replaced by Kane who returned from his ankle injury in the 61st minute.
Victor Wanyama is also back from his spell on the sidelines but only makes the bench.
Kyle Walker comes back into the side for Kieran Trippier.
