Kane back in team to face Arsenal, says Pochettino
The England striker will hope to boost Pochettino’s side, that are winless across six matches in all competitions since beating Manchester City 2-0 a month ago and lie three points behind second-place Arsenal in the Premier League table.
“Harry Kane will be in the squad,” Pochettino said at a news conference ahead of the match at the Emirates Stadium.“We are very happy with Harry, he had a good training session – he is fit.
“In the last few seasons he has been very important for us and was the top scorer in the league [in 2015-16]. It is important for the club, it is very good news and good to have him back. He can help the team.”
Toby Alderweireld has not recovered in time from his knee injury to feature, while Mousa Dembele will be assessed after going off during the first half of Wednesday’s 1-0 Champions League loss to Bayer Leverkusen and Erik Lamela (hip) is also a doubt.
