Sean Dyche has dismissed the fact that Tottenham is dependent on striker Harry Kane ahead of Burnley’s game against them on Saturday.
Kane has been on the sidelines since injuring his ankle ligaments in the 1-0 defeat to Manchester United at Wembley back in January.
The England striker could likely face Burnley at Turf Moor after returning to first team training but Dyche is bracing up for a tough test.
“He’s a top striker, although they have fared pretty well without him. He is one of the best around when fit,” Dyche said of Kane ahead of the Sky Live clash.
“He does more or less everything. For all people say, ‘is he really quick’, a lot of centre-forwards are, but he is quick with his brain, he’s quick in is movement and he sees things really quickly.
“[But] it has been proven that they are not just a Harry Kane Tottenham. They have some top players and that has been proven while Harry Kane has been missing.
“But it’s fair to say, he adds to it without a shadow of a doubt.”
The Clarets are looking to extend their unbeaten run in the Premier League to eight games since their 5-1 reverse at home by Everton on Boxing Day.
Dyche is delighted at the manner in which his team have performed till date, jumping to 15th in the table having previously been stuck in the relegation zone.

“We’ve been heavily questioned this season, myself and the team,” added Dyche.
“To come out of that with a good run of performances and results is very pleasing.
“The players are certainly grounded enough to know there is more to come and we have got to continue in that vein.”
A win for Burnley will further strengthen their hopes of survival as the battle for relegation hots up.
