In a big boost to Tottenham ahead of the Champions League showdown against Real Madrid, striker Harry Kane took part in an open training session.

As reported by The Daily Mail, the England international was present with the rest of the team as Mauricio Pochettino took charge of the session ahead of the big match. And, the manager is optimistic that Kane would be available to play some part in Wednesday’s fixture at Wembley.

The signs looked good as Kane was involved in drills after an indoor gym session and the smiles on his face indicated that he was not in apparent discomfort. And, guess what? Even Erik Lamela took part in the training!

Reports indicate that the 24-year-old striker even assured one of his team-mates that he is alright and gave an “OK gesture” during the session.

This is excellent news for the club who had to play their last two matches without the star forward. Incidentally, Spurs lost both the matches. A 3-2 loss to West Ham United in the League Cup was followed by a narrow 1-0 defeat at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday.

Kane picked up a hamstring injury after orchestrating a 4-0 romp over Liverpool. Pochettino provided an update about Kane in the press conference at the training ground and looked upbeat about his availability.

 

When questioned about the chances of Kane’s participation against Real in midweek, Pochettino said:

“With the doctors and the player, we will take the best decision for everyone. We must analyse and take the best decision for everyone.

“We will assess him and then we will make the best decision. My feeling is good. But it’s not my feeling, it’s Harry Kane’s feeling.”

Another player whose presence gave a lift to the fans is that of Lamela. The Argentine midfielder hasn’t featured for Tottenham since October 2016 after suffering repeated hip injuries.

Pochettino is looking to continue the great start in the Champions League. The unbeaten Spurs have 7 points from 3 matches and with a win at home against Real Madrid, we can improve our chances of qualifying for the knockouts.

Dele Alli, who was suspended for Tottenham’s 1-1 draw at the Bernabeu will be available for selection but it is the presence and fitness of Kane that every Spurs fan is eagerly awaiting.

Will Kane participate in the crucial clash? Hopefully, yes!

Tottenham handed major boost as Barcelona star picks up hamstring injury ahead of Champions League clash

Harry Kane of Tottenham scores against Barcelona

Football.london reports that Ivan Rakitic could be a doubt for our Champions League clash against Barcelona next month.

The Croatian was subbed in the 3-2 win over Spain in the Nations League and didn’t play against England recently.

An update on Barcelona’s Twitter account was posted and didn’t confirm when the player could be fit.

Should the hamstring strain be severe, the player could miss a month or more, and Tottenham need all the luck they can get in their Champions League group.

Tottenham might need to win both their clashes in the group, and they don’t come easy with us facing Inter Milan at Wembley before that big clash against Barcelona at the Nou Camp.

Spurs gave themselves a lifeline against PSV with a late win, and we need similar heroics when we face the Serie A side.

Inter Milan beat us 2-1 and we will have to win by two clear goals or by a scoreline of 1-0 to get a better head to head than our rivals.

Barcelona have had their own struggles with a porous defence, and they conceded four goals in a shock 4-3 loss to Real Betis at the Nou Camp.

This should provide Spurs with some hope for the all-important clash and it will be better if some of the top Barca players can’t play the game.

Juventus have made Christian Eriksen one of their top targets as they try to add quality in the winter window, according to Tuttosport (h/t Daily Mail).

The report adds that Paul Pogba, Adrien Rabiot and Aaron Ramsey are all targets for the Serie A giants, and a reunion with the Manchester United man is their first choice.

Should a move not work out for Pogba, Eriksen is the man Juventus believe they can get. The Dane has struggled with injury this season at Tottenham and has recorded a single goal for the side.

Juventus have made it a habit of getting some quality players on the cheap and Eriksen is yet to sign a new deal with Spurs.

Christian Eriksen Tottenham

The attacking midfielder has been missed this season but we have done a decent job without him. Spurs are fourth in the Premier League just five points behind Manchester City, and our next clash is against Chelsea after the international break.

Eriksen has had a tough time with an injury this season but has recovered from the abdominal issue. The 26-year-old played the entire 90 against Wales and is expected to play again before the end of the international break.

Eriksen scored 10 goals and provided 10 assists for Spurs in the Premier League last season, and a similar return would be great after an injury-affected campaign.

England looked set for more international heartbreak as Croatia were leading in their UEFA Nations League game.

The hosts then turned things up a notch after Jesse Lingard scored the equaliser and Tottenham star Harry Kane got the winner.

The England captain turned saviour for the side again, but another Tottenham man also turned the game on its head with his arrival.

Dele Alli didn’t start in the important clash against the Croatians but came on with around 30 minutes remaining in the tie.

The Englishman didn’t score or grab an assist but his attacking display helped England to the semi-finals of the competition.

The 22-year-old has struggled for goals and assists this season, but this performance certainly led to several Tottenham fans applauding the youngster.
