Jose Mourinho expects Harry Kane to feature for Tottenham Hotspur against Arsenal
The English skipper missed the midweek clash due to an injury and was even absent from training on Wednesday. Kane has been pivotal in our impressive start to the season and forms a key cog in the Spurs attack.
With the North London Derby against Arsenal up next, there were fears that the 27-year-old could miss out. Mourinho has now confirmed that will not be the case.
The Spurs boss refused to be drawn into revealing the status of Kane’s injury. He did however go on to confirm that he expects the striker to feature against the Gunners.
“I think he has a good chance of playing at the weekend, I believe he will play.”
The prospect of having our attacking talisman back for such a big game would be a major boost for the squad. Kane has been in brilliant form this season and has scored 13 goals in just 16 appearances.
The Spurs ace also has an excellent record against Arsenal. He has played against our arch-rivals 12 times and currently averages one goal contribution a game. He will now look to add to his 10 goals and two assists this weekend. (h/t Transfermarkt)
The Gunners are in transition and have found it difficult to make a mark this season. The stage is set for us to continue our dominance in North London and we should put Arsenal to the sword.
A win would ensure we stay put at the top of the table for another week, unless Liverpool overtake us on goal difference (which is highly unlikely).

Tottenham were thoroughly outplayed for large parts of the game against LASK on Thursday. We will need to improve our tempo and attitude if we are to keep our good run going.
Regardless of the context, a match against Arsenal is always a feisty affair. We will hopefully come out on top once again.
