Harry Kane’s Tottenham injury
When Harry Kane limped out of the Bournemouth match three weeks ago, fans were fearing the worst.
Was Kane’s Premier League season over? Would he be fit for England at the World Cup?
Yet, those initial fears were, happily, wide of the mark. After the swelling calmed down, Tottenham said Kane could be out for four to six weeks.
But the Tottenham centre-forward has shredded that timetable as he’s made a faster than expected recovery.
Indeed, during the international break, Kane met up with Gareth Southgate with a brace on his leg.
Chelsea vs Tottenham
On Sunday, Chelsea host Tottenham in the Premier League.
Spurs could receive a major boost before their Stamford Bridge trip as Harry Kane could be in their matchday squad.
On Friday the Times have the following Kane update:
Harry Kane could make a shock return for Tottenham Hotspur against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
The England striker was expected to be sidelined for at least another fortnight after damaging ankle ligaments against Bournemouth on March 11, but Kane had extensive treatment during the international break and is back in training.
Harry Kane vs Mohamed Salah
If Kane does return against Chelsea, that’s a minor setback for Liverpool star Mohamed Salah.
Salah and Kane are battling it out to be the Premier League’s top scorer this season.
Before the international break, Liverpool beat Watford 5-0 as Salah scored four goals for the Reds.
Salah has now moved onto 28 Premier League goals for the season, and he’s four goals clear of Tottenham’s Kane.
It’s worth remembering that Kane finished last season on fire scoring four against Leicester and three against Hull.
Spurs also have a game in hand over Liverpool. And Spurs have a ‘good’ run of fixture until the end of the campaign as they take on teams including Stoke, Brighton, Watford, Newcastle, West Brom and Leicester.
