Update on Harry Kane’s availability for Tottenham vs West Ham

Tottenham vs West Ham

After Wednesday night’s brilliant 2-2 London derby between Arsenal and Chelsea, there’s another huge match in the capital on Thursday.

Having been postponed by London police on New Year’s Eve, Tottenham will take on West Ham at Wembley tonight.

Both Spurs and the Hammers were in action on Tuesday.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side won 2-0 at Swansea, while the Hammers came from behind to beat West Brom 2-1 at the London Stadium.

Will Harry Kane start vs the Hammers?

All Spurs fans, and many Fantasy Premier League managers, will be keen to know if Harry Kane will start against West Ham.

Kane ended 2017 on fire. He scored successive hat-tricks against Burnley and Southampton.

But, having been struck down with the flu, Kane was left on the Tottenham bench at kick off at Swansea.

Fernando Llorente started and scored for Spurs, while Kane was brought on for the last 25 minutes of the game at the Liberty Stadium.

Having had a few more days to recover since Swansea, it seems certain that Kane will start against West Ham.

West Ham injury news

West Ham lost four players in the West Brom match.

There has been plenty of talk that forward Diafra Sakho will look to leave West Ham in the January transfer window.

But can he pass a medical right now? After the Baggies games, Moyes confirmed that Diafra Sakho is out with cyst on his knee.

Moyes also confirmed that striker Andre Ayew is currently sidelined with a hamstring problem.

At the back, after only recently returning to action, Welsh international James Collins is again out fo contention with an unspecified injury.

Aaron Cresswell was also forced out of the West Brom game in the second half with an injury.
