Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino remains hopeful Harry Kane will be fit enough to face struggling Swansea today.
Kane sat out the Europa League victory over Fiorentina on Thursday night after breaking his nose against Crystal Palace in the FA Cup last weekend.
The striker underwent an operation on Wednesday and then took part in light training on both Thursday and Friday in a bid to prove his fitness for this weekend’s match at White Hart Lane.
Tottenham will be cautious while Kane remains in discomfort but the forward could wear a face mask if it means he can play and help his team’s title charge.
Pochettino said on Wednesday he expected Kane to return to action against Swansea but, speaking after the win against Fiorentina, the Spurs head coach was more circumspect.
“We need to assess him day by day,” Pochettino said. “On Thursday he was on the training ground, he ran, he made some exercises and we are happy with the way he is.
“We will see. We hope he will be available for Sunday.”
