Harry Kane expects to be fit for Tottenham’s FA Cup trip to Fulham


Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane insists the knee injury he picked up in their 1-0 Europa League defeat to Gent on Thursday is not serious.

The England international started in Belgium on Thursday night and managed to complete the full 90 minutes, although he did suffer the knock late on in the match.

Kane was reportedly seen walking out of Ghelamco Arena without any trouble, but there were suggestions he would be a doubt for the weekend’s FA Cup clash with Championship side Fulham.

However, speaking after the game Kane reiterated that he was fine ahead of Sunday, although manager Mauricio Pochettino admitted that his main man had indeed suffered a knock during the game.

When asked whether he would be fit for the Fulham game, Kane said, as reported by Sky Sports: “Yes, it should be fine.”

Pochettino added: “I think we need to assess some players. Harry Kane got a knock on his knee, different players too.

“We need to refresh the team and we’ll do that. Tottenham will play in Fulham on Sunday. It’s not the name of the players, it’s the club.

“We’ll see, but we’ll put out a team with aims to win and be ready again to compete.”

Jeremy Perbet’s 59th-minute strike on Thursday ensured Gent claimed a deserved 1-0 first-leg victory, in turn leaving Pochettino’s side with plenty to do ahead of the second leg at Wembley Stadium.

The defeat comes after Spurs were left humbled by top-four rivals Liverpool at Anfield last week.
