Kane allays injury fears

Last Updated: Fri, 17 Feb 2017 11:12

Harry Kane expects to be fit for Sunday's FA Cup tie at Fulham if selected, despite picking up a knee injury in the 1-0 defeat at Gent.

The 23-year-old England international hitman, who has already scored 16 goals for Tottenham this season in all competitions, suffered the knock late on in Thursday's Europa League last-32 first-leg clash in Belgium.

However, Kane was able to complete the full 90 minutes and when asked if he would be okay for Sunday's FA Cup fifth-round tie at Championship side Fulham, he said: "Yes, it should be fine."

There is a strong possibility that Kane will be rested for the game at Craven Cottages as the games are coming thick and fast in their fight for at least a top-four Premier League finish and the second leg of their Europa League tie against Gent at Wembley next Thursday.

On his selection plans for the cup, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino said: "I think we need to assess some players. Harry Kane got a knock on his knee, different players too.

"We need to refresh the team and we’ll do that. Tottenham will play in Fulham on Sunday. It’s not the name of the players, it’s the club.

"We’ll see, but we’ll put out a team with aims to win and be ready again to compete."

Punters may look to use their free bet to back Spurs to beat Fulham and go on and win the FA Cup this season.
