Pochettino won’t rule out surprise Kane return for Chelsea clash

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has refused to rule out his star striker Harry Kane making a shock return from injury to feature in his sides crunch Premier League encounter against Spurs this Sunday.

Fixtures between these two London rivals are traditionally spicy affairs, but with both clubs currently locked in a battle to finish in the top four, it promises to be a fascinating encounter.

Chelsea will go into the game under pressure as they currently sit five points behind Spurs in the table with eight games remaining this season. Although, The Blues will also be aware that their visitors have an atrocious record at Stamford Bridge having not won there since 1990.

Further intrigue was added to the game today when Spurs manager Pochettino admitted that there is a possibility that striker Harry Kane may make a surprise return for the Super Sunday clash.

The England frontman damaged ankle ligaments against Bournemouth a few weeks ago, but it seems he may be in line for a sensational early return to his sides starting XI this weekend.

“We need to assess him. He is very positive and he is doing very well.”

“Every day he is improving. We need to assess him in the next few days. It’s difficult now to say yes or no.”

“I cannot say no, but I cannot say yes. Maybe next weekend. But the most important is that we are so positive about his recovery, and we are doing fantastic, and we are so happy.” Pochettino said.
