Arsenal legend Ian Wright has warned Manchester United of the dangers Harry Kane and Heung-min Son will present them if they are fit to play on Friday.

The former Gunner insists that Spurs have every chance of ending United’s five-game unbeaten spell if Son and Kane start the match.

Spurs are currently four points behind fifth-placed United when the pair get ready for the resumption of the Premier League on Friday (PL).

“The enforced rest he [Kane] had will be good for him because I think over the last few years he’s needed a rest like that,” Wright told Premier League Productions (via The Metro).

“He’s not had it, he’s been forced to play, he’s come back early in certain situations and now he’s probably raring to go.

“They’ve had even more time to make sure that they can get him totally right. His ankle has been a problem and so you’re thinking hopefully that they’ve really gone to town on it, found out everything that was wrong because of what he means to the club.”

Kane is likely to make his return to football following picking up a tear in his hamstring against Southampton in January.

Son will also be expected to make his return following a fractured arm suffered in the away win against Aston Villa in March.

“I’m very surprised that he doesn’t get a lot more notice from bigger teams like the Barcelonas and Real Madrids, I think he can play for those teams,” Wright said on Son.

“When you look at him: pace, goalscoring. He’s got everything. He can do everything, left foot, right foot.”

Jose Mourinho tasted his first defeat as Spurs manager in December when he travelled to Old Trafford in a 2-1 loss against his former side (BBC).

Spurs Web Opinion

There is no doubt about the threat Sonny and Kane will provide. However, there are many Spurs fans who are equally excited about the return of Steven Bergwijn, Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso.

Although Wright warns United, Spurs should be cautious of the returning Marcus Rashford, who netted both goal in the December defeat.
