Tottenham Hotspur are now under a week away from the biggest night in the club’s recent history, as they are set to walk out for the Champions League final for the first time.

Spurs haven’t won a trophy in well over a decade, but the biggest piece of silverware in club football would be some way to break that drought.

Tottenham face Liverpool in the final on June 1 in Madrid, as the Reds line up for the second successive Champions League final.

All the talk has been about whether Harry Kane will start the match, make the bench, or lose the race to be fit enough to feature (Metro).

The Daily Star now say the striker ‘looks certain’ to start the match from the bench after sustaining an ankle ligament injury in the quarter-final first leg against Man City.

However, we will likely only know for sure once Spurs release their team sheet an hour before kick off. Would you want Kane to start?

Spurs Web Opinion:

I believe Kane starting from the bench is the right way to go. Either that or start him and only play him for a half. I think you have to prioritise both the player’s health, and the other strikers who are in much better form and are far fitter. Let Kane play a part because he is one of the best strikers in the world, but do not pick him purely on name alone.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Firstly it is amazing we are even having this debate he shouldn’t be fit in this short period of time. It’s a testament to how dedicated Kane is to this club and his career, so ‘well done’ Harry. I love Kane and I know what he brings to the team but Im sorry he should definitely start on the bench. Infact as our captain Harry should know this himself and put the team first. WoW what an impact Harry Kane would have on the Spurs boys that are on the field around the 50th – 60th minute and starting to get tiered legs just the boost of belief they would need to go for it. Also what a story coming from having little to no chance of being fit too then coming on scoring the winning goal to bring the Champions League trophy back to ‘White Hart LANE’.. Come on Harry you can do it!…COYS (This could be a ‘Roy of the Rovers’ story)
