Jose Mourinho has cooled fears Harry Kane and Tanguy Ndombele could miss Sunday’s north London derby through injury.
Ndombele took a number of knocks to his ankles against Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League on Thursday and was eventually substituted.
Meanwhile, Kane – who scored twice in the 2-0 victory – was kicked on the knee in the latter stages and had to apply an icepack after being taken off.
The striker eventually took off the icepack and didn’t appear to be walking gingerly after the game.
And Mourinho has suggested both Ndombele and Kane will be fine to play against Arsenal, even with minor issues.
Speaking to reporters after the game (via the Independent), Mourinho said: “No concern [for Ndombele], even Harry I don’t believe it is anything big. It’s a game everyone wants to play on Sunday, little things are not going to stop them playing. I believe they are going to be OK.”
It’s obviously very good news for Spurs that Kane will be available. He has been in superb form of late and he loves a goal against the Gunners.
Ndombele could also play a crucial role in the derby, especially if he plays in the attacking midfield role behind Kane, Son Heung-min and Gareth Bale.
