Harry Kane insists his injury is not serious

By Su Collins

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has revealed that the knee injury he sustained in the Europa League defeat against Gent on Thursday is not serious.

The 23-year-old insisted that he should be fit to face Fulham on Sunday in the fifth round of the FA Cup despite the knock he picked up.

“Yes, it should be fine,” Sky Sports quote Kane as saying.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has expressed worries regarding players’ fitness ahead of the fixture to Craven Cottage but the striker himself is hopeful.
Kane is still likely to be rested as the Tottenham manager has emphasised the need to assess other players.

“I think we need to assess some players. Harry Kane got a knock on his knee, different players too,” Pochettino said.

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

Tottenham have seen a dip in form having lost both of their most recent games after an unbeaten run of 11 games in a row.  

Although Gent were able to snatch a 1-0 victory, Spurs are expected to come back strong at Wembley in the second leg and progressing to the next round is not out of the question.

The North London side’s priority is a strong Premier League finish, but with competition in two cup competitions still ongoing, Pochettino needs to manage his squad effectively.
