Harry Kane scored 25 Premier League goals last season

Tottenham forward Harry Kane could be fit to face Arsenal on Sunday, says boss Mauricio Pochettino.

The 23-year-old has been out with ligament damage suffered during a 1-0 win over Sunderland on 18 September.

Should he return for the north London derby (12:00 GMT), Pochettino said Kane would also be available for England’s World Cup qualifier against Scotland on Friday 11 November.

“Sunday? Maybe, maybe,” said Pochettino regarding Kane’s fitness.

However, the England international will not feature against Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League on Wednesday.

“Tomorrow, no, not on the bench,” added the Argentine.

“It’s good because you can see him today warming up with the team to be involved in some exercises. But no, for tomorrow he is not ready.”
