Kane set to miss Chelsea game with injury

Tottenham Hotspur have not beaten Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge since 1990 when striker Gary Lineker scored the winning goal in a 2-1 league victory

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that Harry Kane could feature against Chelsea in Sunday's Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge after being sidelined with an ankle ligament injury.

The 24-year-old England marksman, who has 31 goals to his credit this term, injured his ankle last month against Bournemouth and wasn't expected to return to training until April.

Kane was expected to return to first-team training early April, with a view to being reintroduced on the pitch against Manchester City on 14 April 14, though Pochettino seems to have suggested the England global could be featuring much earlier. We need to assess him in the next few days.

"He is doing well and improving every day", Pochettino told a news conference. "We are focused on performance and the possibility to be better than them and we have the capacity to win the game", Pochettino added.

"I think it's always a massive game because it's a London derby", he said.

"I cannot say no, I cannot say yes".

Germany v Brazil - story of the match
Brazil coach Tite has spoken about the "ghost" of the 7-1 defeat still haunting the Selecao, but Low said it's time to move on. The World Cup represents the pinnacle for the centre back but he is not the type to wallow in the glory of his achievements.

"We are so happy because, after Bournemouth, everyone believed that maybe it would be a long period out".

Fourth-placed Tottenham, now occupy the final qualification spot and sit five points ahead of Chelsea with eight games left this season. Arsenal and Chelsea always are tough games, because they are derbies, and for me it is a similar type of opponent.

Any game against Chelsea is a huge tie for Tottenham, yet Sunday's game carries huge importance for both sides. Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and defender Andreas Christensen will both need to be assessed before the game and could be big absentees for such a pivotal match.

"Of course there are still a lot of games to play, it is not a final".

Pochettino, who ranks Spurs' rivalry with Chelsea on a par with Arsenal, does not think it is a winner-takes-all game. "It's there but it's not going to help, first of all Chelsea and then us... to win against Chelsea would be fantastic for everyone but it will be a tough game, they are a good team".
