Harry Kane Not Ruled Out with Ankle Injury for Chelsea vs

  • Pochettino Kane Could Be Fit To Face Chelsea

Kane was expected to return to first-team training early April, with a view to being reintroduced on the pitch against Manchester City on 14 April 14, though Pochettino seems to have suggested the England global could be featuring much earlier.

Kane is now second on 24 goals, four behind Egypt and Liverpool's Mohamed Salah, in the Premier League top scorers chart. Spurs now sit in fourth in the Premier League table and have the chance to extend their lead over fifth place Chelsea to eight points.

"We need to assess him in the next few days", Pochettino told a press conference.

Pochettino also commented on Toby Alderweireld's fitness: "Like always, with the squad, we need to decide first of all the starting XI and then the players that will on the bench". If not this weekend, maybe next weekend.

"But the most important [thing] is that we are so positive about his recovery, and we are doing fantastic, and we are so happy", Pochettino said.

The 46-year-old Argentine would not rule out their main striker Harry Kane following his ankle injury picked up against Bournemouth. Arsenal and Chelsea always are tough games, because they are derbies, and for me it is a similar type of opponent.

Notably, the injury report does not mention Dele Alli, who was reportedly carrying a knock in England training that kept him out of both matches, Victor Wanyama, who left global duty with Kenya early for physical reasons to return to London, or Toby Alderweireld, who started and played 90 minutes for Belgium earlier in the week.

"I think it's always a massive game because it's a London derby", he said.

"Of course there are still a lot of games to play, it is not a final".

"I think my job is to try to help the player to [achieve] what they deserve and what they want - giving them the tools to perform".

A win for Spurs would take them eight points clear of Chelsea but a home victory would put the Blues just two points behind Spurs.
