Tottenham Hotspur will be determined to get Harry Kane back fit and firing for the Champions League final on June 1st.

The star striker was forced off injured against Man City in the first leg of the quarter-finals in the same competition.

Kane suffered an ankle ligament injury after trapping his foot between the turf and Fabian Delph’s studs at the new Spurs stadium, and has not been seen on the pitch since.

However, the Tottenham academy striker was seen in Amsterdam celebrating the club’s famous late win over Ajax earlier this month.

This win booked a place in Madrid against fellow comeback Kings Liverpool and Kane will not want to miss out on his boyhood club’s first ever Champions League final.

In the 2018/19 season, Harry Kane was fouled an average of 1.9 times per match, more than any other Tottenham player.

This implies that Kane is targeted far more than other Spurs players, and the striker seemingly gets himself into more situations that could result in injuries.

Should Kane change up the way he plays to avoid challenges, or is it something he will simply have to deal with throughout his career?
