Harry Kane has fully recovered from an ankle injury and is set to return to the starting line-up for Saturday’s Premier League clash at Stoke City according to Mauricio Pochettino.
Kane was a late substitute in our historic league victory over champions Chelsea last weekend and showed no effects of the injury that he picked up on March 11th
“He is okay after playing nearly 20 minutes against Chelsea. This week was good, he is working hard,”:Pochettino told his pre match news conference.
He is again out top scorer this season with 24 league goals and is looking to win the Golden Boot for a third straight season but trails Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah who has 29 goals.
“Of course, the expectation for him (Kane) is to score goals. He is hungry to score,”:Pochettino added.
We are fourth in the league with 64 points and looking to secure a top-four finish to ensure Champions League football again and the Argentine tactician was also hopeful of his side being able to repeat their second-place finish of last season.
“We want to finish as high as possible, we are in a good position but there are still a lot of games to play… if we can finish second, it would be better than third or fourth,”:he said.
