Tottenham Star Confirms He’s An Injury Doubt For Everton Clash

By on March 2, 2017

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has emerged as an injury doubt for Sunday’s Premier League clash with Everton, according to the Mirror.

Kane was due to take part in Nike’s ‘Strike Night’ challenge alongside a number of other top strikers on Wednesday but the Spurs hitman was unable to participate due to injury.

The 23-year-old has been carrying a knee injury in recent weeks and was considered as a doubt to face Stoke City at White Hart Lane last weekend.

Kane was passed fit and showed no sign of the injury after scoring a hat-trick during a 4-0 victory but the striker did pick up a knock after colliding with a post.

The Mirror claim Kane told reporters last night that he was unable to take part in the Nike event as he is ‘resting’ his injury but he ‘hopes’ to be fit to face Everton this weekend.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino will be praying Kane recovers over the next 48 hours as he’s arguably the north Londoners most important player right now.

The England international is in red hot form having scored three hat-tricks in his last 9 games and took his tally this season to 22 goals in 27 appearances with his latest treble against Stoke last weekend.

If Kane is ruled out, Pochettino has limited replacements lined-up as Vincent Janssen has struggled to make an impression since joining the club last summer so Heung-min Son may have to be deployed up front against the Toffees.

In Kane’s absence, Andre Silva beat Marcus Rashford to secure Nike’s Strike Night title in London last night to be crowned the world’s ‘Ultimate Finisher’.
