Harry Kane back in training ahead of Real Madrid clash


Tottenham talisman Harry Kane trained with the rest of the squad ahead of a UEFA Champions League clash with holders Real Madrid on Wednesday.

The England international missed out on successive defeats to West Ham and Manchester United, last turning out against Liverpool in the Premier League, where he netted a brace en route to a 4-1 victory.

Speaking to the press ahead of the mid-week clash, Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino sounded confident over the chances of having his main man available up front, but could not confirm his involvement.

“We’re very confident (that he will play against Real Madrid) – he’s on the list. We have one more day to assess him but maybe it’s possible he can play tomorrow,” said Pochettino.

“I don’t want to say 100% because we have one more day. Today and yesterday was good at training. Now it’s with medical staff to take the right decision.”

Harry Kane has scored eight Premier League goals from his first nine appearances – the quickest start he has ever made to a season regarding goalscoring. Overall, he has 13 goals from 12 appearances, scoring braces against Everton, West Ham, Huddersfield, Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund, as well as a hattrick against APOEL.

The back-to-back Premier League Golden Boot winner can once again be found at the summit of the goalscoring charts in England, where he has eight strikes from nine appearances.

He’s grabbed five goals from three outings in the UEFA Champions League, and played a vital role in Tottenham’s only goal in the 1-1 draw with Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu a fortnight ago.

Tottenham will look to take charge of Group H in the UEFA Champions League when they welcome Real Madrid to Wembley Stadium on Wednesday, with a victory putting them three points clear of the Spanish giants at the top of the table.
