In an exclusive interview with Football FanCast, former Tottenham Hotspur captain Graham Roberts has dropped a big hint as to whether Harry Kane will be fit to feature in the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City at Wembley this afternoon.
The England skipper limped off during the 2-2 draw at Everton last week, and was absent from the squad for the 2-1 victory against Southampton on Wednesday night.
Will Harry Kane start today?
Interim manager Ryan Mason confirmed in his pre-match press conference that the 27-year-old hadn’t trained on Friday ahead of the clash against Pep Guardiola’s men, and it remains to be seen whether he featured on Saturday, or has had long enough to be named either in the squad, or in the starting XI, in north London on Sunday.
After sacking Jose Mourinho this week, Spurs are going in search of their first piece of silverware since their 2008 victory in the same competition, and it will certainly be a harder task without their talisman up top against the likes Ruben Dias and John Stones at the back for City.
However, Roberts told FFC that he thinks Kane will be fit to face to the soon-to-be Premier League champions, saying:
“My heart and my fingers are crossed, but I think he’ll be playing on Sunday.”
