Harry Kane only missed Tottenham's Champions League defeat at Bayern Munich because 'the result was secondary' and will not be rested for Spurs' run of three games in seven days around Christmas, Jose Mourinho has declared.

Lucas Moura played alone in attack as Spurs slumped to their first away defeat of the season in Europe with a 3-1 loss in Munich on Wednesday as Mourinho gave several key players a breather.

England captain Kane, who has scored six goals for Spurs in the Champions League this season, is expected to return as his side's spearhead in the Premier League at Wolves tomorrow in the first of a string of tests for Tottenham before the end of the year.
