Tottenham talisman Harry Kane is expected to be passed as fully match fit despite recent media reports indicating that he missed out on training this week. He seems to be fine, as if there is a supposed issue, it hasn’t even been specified. Heung-min Son was dropped in the last London derby, the win over West Ham United last Sunday, but he did come off the bench to score the second goal, so maybe he stays on the bench here?
Or does he go back into the first team now? Hard to say because again, if something is going on with him, in terms of a fitness issue, it has not been specified at this time.
