Harry Kane is probably the most in-form striker in the world right now. The Englishman can’t just seem to stop scoring after having a “no goal show” in August.
He is currently Premier league’s highest goal scorer for this season with eight goals in nine matches. Kane is odds on via 888sport and many other bookmakers to become this season’s highest goal scorer despite the excellent form of the likes of Gabriel Jesus, Aguero, Lukaku and Morata. Tottenham’s management and the fans surely know if we are to do well this season, we need to manage to keep Harry Kane fit for the rest of the season.
This is why I believe many must have been scared when Kane was seen clutching his hamstring when he was subbed off in yesterday’s 4-1 win over Liverpool. The 24-year-old striker was obviously in discomfort while walking off the pitch and this led to fears that he could be missing in action for couple of weeks.
Sky Sports journalist Geoff Shreeves has however dismissed these fears. Geoff Shreeves went on twitter to provide an update on Kane’s injury, he confirmed he spoke with the striker and Mauricio Pochettino and that he has been assured the injury is not a serious one.
Here is a Twitter exchange regarding the injury:
Sky’s @GeoffShreeves asks Harry Kane a piffling question about Kobe Bryant, but nothing on why he went off clutching his hamstring. Bizarre.

told me he thought was fine, going to have it checked and Potch would know when he came to do his interview. MP confirmed so.

This is good news for Tottenham. Although we still have Son who has played well recently, if we will want to mount another title challenge, we can’t afford to have Kane going out with injuries for too long.
Manchester City have Aguero and Gabriel and seem to be able to get goals everywhere on the pitch, and although Alli, Eriksen and Son have done well so far for Tottenham, Kane for me could be the game changer for us. I don’t see City maintaining the form they currently are in but considering how thin our squad is, especially in attack, we simply can’t afford injuries. If we keep our players fit, we can take advantage when City have a dip in form as every team will at one point this season.
I expect Kane to be rested for some matches in the coming days. Another draw against Real Madrid in the Champions league next week gets us even closer to qualification for the second round of the Champions league which means we can afford to rest Kane for the last two matches or use him in bit-part roles for some of the matches, assuming off course results in other matches in the group go our way.
“He is quick, smart and he can score” – Tottenham star warns his team of West Ham star’s quality
Toby Alderweireld has warned Tottenham of Marko Arnautovic’s quality ahead of the derby against West Ham on Saturday.
Tottenham have a couple of big games after the game against the Hammers as we play PSV in the Champions League and face Manchester City in the Premier League.
The Belgian was quoted by the Evening Standard as he wanted the side to be at their best:
“Arnautovic is a very good, player. He is quick, smart, strong and he can score. He’s an all-round player so we have to be at our top level to beat them.
“It’s a derby and it’s always difficult there.”
Arnautovic has been brilliant for West Ham and scored in their win over Manchester United recently. The 29-year-old has four goals and an assist in the Premier League from seven games and will be a threat against us.
Tottenham also have to be wary of a few others at West Ham. Felipe Anderson and Andriy Yarmolenko can be deadly on their day, and it will be important for us to keep them in check on Saturday.
Spurs might have lost a couple of games this season in the Premier League but we aren’t that far away from the top of the table.
We lie just a couple of points behind the league-leading trio and hopefully, a win over the Hammers can take us to the top of the table on Saturday.
Tottenham’s official 2019 calendar features an unexpected figure
The report adds that the Argentine graces the month of January. He is the only manager from the top six to be featured in the official calendars.
The other players who feature are Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli, Davinson Sanchez, Dele Alli, Hugo Lloris, Harry Kane, Eric Dier, Kieran Trippier, Jan Vertonghen, Ben Davies, Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura.
The stars that have missed out include Danny Rose, Toby Alderweireld and Mousa Dembele. All three were linked with a move away in the summer (h/t Football.london).
Surprisingly, even Harry Winks and Erik Lamela were omitted despite signing new deals in the summer.
Rose had missed out on the calendar last season too and had asked the manager why he didn’t feature. Pochettino was quoted by Football.london as saying:
“He came to see me and said ‘Gaffer, why aren’t I on the calendar?’ I said you were in Central Park [in New York at the time]. It’s not a big issue.”
The calendar was finalised on the 1st of September after the transfer window had closed. The report adds the club has the final approval over who goes on the product and not.
Further, a player might not be included as he might have been injured, not pictured in the right kit or might have not been playing in the first-team at the time, according to the report.
Great news for Tottenham fans as club plans to open a part of the new stadium to the public this week
The report claims that Spurs are aiming to complete the work on the megastore located inside “The Tottenham Experience”, which is located on the corner of Park Lane and High Road.
The store could be open on Saturday, however, the report adds that the confirmation of the same won’t take place before Friday.
Tottenham have claimed that the megastore will be the biggest retail space for any football club in the continent.
There is a lot of work to be done as the 100-seater auditorium of the store isn’t complete, as per the report. Further, the NFL and football dressing rooms and many bars are yet to be completed.
The report adds that some of the executive suites, including Daniel Levy’s, are close to being operational.
The report further claims that Tottenham could announce the relocation of two games to Wembley. We could play Chelsea on 24th November and Southampton on 5th December at Wembley.
Tottenham’s stadium has faced numerous delays and missed its original date of September 15. However, Mauricio Pochettino recently claimed that we could play at our new home before Christmas.
