Tottenham Hotspur take on RB Leipzig in the Champions League this week, as they look to overturn a 1-0 deficit in the knockout tie.
Spurs gave the Germans an away goal during the first leg at the new White Hart Lane and will need to find a reply of their own without their two leading scorers.
Harry Kane and Heung-min Son have both been out injured for weeks now, with the former rupturing his left hamstring tendon on January 1 and the latter fracturing his arm last month.
After requiring surgery on the injury, Harry Kane finally made a return to outdoor training with a ball at his feet today at Hotspur Way, although the Leipzig game will come too soon.
He will be hoping that his teammates can progress to the next round without him so that he can appear in the competition again this season.
Dele Alli has been speaking of the importance of a Kane return (Football London): “It’s a massive boost. Even when he’s coming to games to have him speaking, he’s a leader. Having had hamstring injuries, I don’t want him to rush it, but I know we need him as well.”
