Tottenham striker Harry Kane has opened up on how his role has changed under the guidance of Jose Mourinho.

Nearly a year has passed since the Portuguese took the reigns at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, where he replaced Mauricio Pochettino as manager.

Mourinho has made several strategic changes to his side since his arrival, although they've continued to produce mixed results over the last 11 months.

One such change has been allowing skipper Kane to drop deep and orchestrate play, which has resulted in the 27-year-old racking up more assists.

Kane bagged another assist in Tottenham's hard-fought victory over Burnley on Monday, setting up Son Heung-Min to score a 76th-minute winner.

The new role is one Kane is enjoying, with the forward telling Sky Sports: "When I've dropped deeper this season the wide players have been running in behind and that has given me space to get my head up and play those passes through.

"Maybe we haven't been doing that in recent years.

"The confidence is high, and everyone knows if I get that ball and turn, they have a chance of getting through on goal.

"We're going with the flow and it was an important win tonight at a tough place to come."

The manner of victory at Turf Moor has Kane believing Spurs will be in contention for honours come the end of the season.

"I think we are at a stage where we have been so close for so many years, a lot of us have been together for four or five years," Kane said. "The additions this year have been great and we are all getting more experienced.

"We know with the team we have got and the players we have got we can do something special. It's making sure when you come to places like this you are fighting for every point and result.

"To bounce back and grind these results out, these are the results that count at the end of the season."

He added: "It's still early on. We need to take each game as it comes. I know it's a cliche. We still have a lot to learn and build on but I think nights like this will give us a lot of confidence."

Tottenham will be back in action on Thursday, travelling to Belgium to take on Royal Antwerp in their second Europa League Group J match.
