Harry Kane is set to make a return to competitive football tomorrow night as Tottenham take on Manchester United in North London.

The Spurs academy graduate has been away from Premier League action for six months following a nasty injury he picked up against Southampton.

Kane injured his hamstring while stretching for a ball at St Mary’s back on January 1 and has not been seen in competitive action since.

However, Kane was involved in both an internal 11 v 11 friendly and a training match against Norwich City this month.

Jose Mourinho has already revealed that Kane will start the match against the Red Devils at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium tomorrow night.

The Special One also claimed that he does not yet know whether Kane is in top form or how many minutes he will be able to get under his belt tomorrow.

However, he did add that the Spurs striker is working well and there are no current injury problems with him.

In his Zoom press conference, Mourinho said (Football London): “Harry Kane hasn’t played football for more than six months. So again, he is working extremely well. I can tell you no problem, he’s going to start the game. Does Harry have 90, 80, 70, 60 minutes, I don’t know. Only the game will tell us that.

“Is he on the top of his form? We don’t know. It’s not a little training session with our friends from Norwich that’s going to tell us the answer. But for him, he’s around 6 months without playing a football match but he works extremely well. He’s an amazing professional and he’s going to start tomorrow.”
