The Telegraph have claimed that Harry Kane has been passed fit to play a part in the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City.

Spurs have been sweating over Kane’s fitness since the striker rolled his ankle in the club’s 2-2 draw against Everton last week.

The game at Goodison Park proved to be the final nail in the coffin for Jose Mourinho, who was relieved of his duties by Daniel Levy on Monday morning.

Ryan Mason, who has been temporarily handed the reins by Levy, chose to start with a front three of Lucas Moura, Son Heung-min and Gareth Bale on Wednesday in Kane’s absence as the North Londoners came from a goal down to get a morale-boosting win against Southampton.

Mason admitted on Friday that Kane will start at Wembley if the striker declares himself fit for the game.

The Telegraph now reveal that the interim Spurs boss is happy with the progress the England captain has made and is confident that he will be involved against Pep Guardiola’s men.

It is stated that there will be final checks made on Kane before deciding whether the striker starts the match or is named on the bench.

Spurs Web Opinion

I would not be too displeased to see Kane on the bench as he probably would not be at 100 per cent. If we going to press Manchester City high up the pitch, Lucas could prove quite a useful option.
