Harry Kane could make a shock return for Tottenham on Sunday as Mauricio Pochettino came out fighting in his defence of Dele Alli.

Kane will be assessed before the weekend, with the striker stepping up his recovery from an ankle injury he picked up in this month's 4-1 win over Bournemouth.

"We need to assess him in the next few days", Pochettino said. "He is very positive and he is doing very well", the Spurs boss said at Thursday's press conference, according to the Mirror. "We are focused on performance and the possibility to be better than them and we have the capacity to win the game", Pochettino added.

"I think it's always a massive game because it's a London derby", he said. I can not give opinions about a context that I wasn't there [for].

"But the most important thing is that we are so positive about his recovery".

"After Bournemouth everybody believed it would be a long period out, but the resolution has been fantastic".
