Ice bath helps Kane prepare for return to Carrow Road with Tottenham
- Credit: PA
Harry Kane makes his second return to Carrow Road this afternoon since an ill-fated season-long loan spell with Norwich seven years ago.
Kane started just one league game and was a sub in two others under then manager Chris Hughton - and failed to find the back of the net. Kane's involvement in City colours was hindered when he suffered a broken metatarsal early on in his loan spell, which ruled him out for three months, and he was recalled by Spurs in February. 2013.
Kane has only been back to Carrow Road once since his time in Norfolk - scoring twice in Tottenham's 3-0 win in February 2016 - and now returns as one of the hottest properties in English football.
Kane banged in goal number 180 for Spurs in their 2-1 Boxing Day win over Brighton and says it was the fighting spirit that got the Londoners through after Brighton had gone ahead on 37 minutes.
"The first half was a little disappointing," he said. "We didn't quite get going early on and obviously going 1-0 down against a good side is never easy. We came out in the second half with a lot more energy, a lot more fight, a lot more passion. Getting the early goal helped and then momentum swung our way. We did well to get the second and it was a big shift to see the game out. We would have liked to have played a bit better and scored a few more goals but that's the Premier League, you play tough teams every game and we've a busy schedule, so it was important to start on Boxing Day with a win."

How will Kane prepare for his return?
"It will be an ice bath this time," he said. "We travel tomorrow (Friday) so get some work done, get your feet up and we've a big squad, so if the manager decides to change it, the players who didn't play will be ready. And if he keeps it the same, it's a game of football and we'll be ready to go again."
