Harry Kane: Not concerned by knee problem

Tottenham striker Harry Kane has indicated the knee injury he sustained in Thursday’s Europa League defeat to Gent is not serious.

But while Kane hopes to be available for the FA Cup fifth-round tie at Fulham on Sunday, the 23-year-old will be assessed ahead of the match and may not be risked.

Kane took a knock late on in the 1-0 first-leg loss against Gent but was later seen walking out of the Ghelamco Arena, seemingly unhindered.

When asked whether he would be fit for the game at Craven Cottage, Kane said: “Yes, it should be fine.”

But Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino had earlier suggested his star striker might be one of a few players rested against the Championship outfit.

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

“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.”
