Tottenham Boost: Key Man Set For Injury Comeback Against Arsenal

By on October 13, 2016

Tottenham Hotspur have been handed a major boost with Harry Kane set to return to light training next week and is expected to be back in time to take on Arsenal next month, according to the Mirror.

Kane has been on the sidelines since suffering an ankle ligament injury during Tottenham’s 1-0 victory over Sunderland last month and was initially expected to be out for up to ten weeks.

However, the injury turned out to be far less severe than first thought and Mauricio Pochettino confirmed last week that the striker was expected to return to action well ahead of schedule.

Speaking at his press conference this afternoon ahead of Tottenham’s clash with West Brom on Saturday, the Argentinean coach offered another update on Kane’s recovery and revealed that things were ‘very positive’.

Pochettino refused to set a firm comeback date but the Spurs boss did confirm that the striker is set to resume light training next week. He’s quoted as saying by the Evening Standard:

“He’s very positive, he’s doing well. We don’t know when he’ll play again. We can only explain that he’s doing well.

“Next week we hope he’ll be training on the pitch – not with the group but he can start to train on the grass a little – but we’re happy.”

Kane has missed Tottenham’s last four games with the ankle problem and is still expected to miss several more including a double-header against Bayer Leverkusen and league games with Liverpool and Leicester as he continues to build up his fitness over the coming weeks.

However, the Evening Standard claim that Kane has set his sights on making his comeback for Tottenham’s huge trip to the Emirates to take on Arsenal on November 6th.

Kane’s return will come as a huge boost to Spurs as although Son Heung-min has performed superbly in his absence with five goals in his last five games, Pochettino will be desperate to have his best striker available again.
