Tottenham star Harry Kane facing race against time to be fit for Carabao Cup final
Kane picked up an ankle injury in our 2-2 draw against Everton last week. Following that the England captain missed our 2-1 win over Southampton earlier this week.
While there was some hope that he could be available for the big game at the weekend, things are looking very touch-and-go at the moment. Indeed, interim boss Ryan Mason, who will lead the team into perhaps the biggest match of the season on Sunday, has claimed that Kane is running out of time to be fit for the clash.
“The days are obviously running out. He didn’t train with the team. It’s a case of taking it hour by hour now.”
This comes after Kane was spotted back in training on Friday night. However, the 27-year-old was restricted to sessions by himself and did not partake in team training.
Asked as to when his availability be decided upon, Mason said, a call will be taken after talking to Kane but insisted that he will not put his striker in a position where he could further exacerbate the injury.
“He knows his body better than anyone else in the world. At the moment he’s not on the football pitch. But if he’s fit, he plays. He’s the best No9 in the world in my eyes so if Harry’s fit and he feels like he is fit then of course he’ll play. But at this moment we don’t know if he will be fit.
“We’ll be a lot clearer in the morning, we’ll be a lot clearer tomorrow. What Harry is not going to do is put his body on the line. We are never going to put Harry in that position, absolutely not.”

Having Kane fit and on the pitch will be absolutely critical for our chances on Sunday. Hopefully, the 27-year-old is able to recover in time to make it to the game.
