Tottenham star Harry Kane will be given until Saturday lunchtime to decide whether he is fit for Carabao Cup Final

HARRY KANE will be given until tomorrow to decide whether he is fit enough to play in Tottenham’s Carabao Cup Final against Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday.

The England striker has not trained since injuring an ankle in his club’s 2-2 draw at Everton last Friday

That caused Kane to miss their 2-1 win at home to Southampton on Wednesday.

Tottenham’s interim boss Ryan Mason, placed in charge of their first team until the end of the season following Monday’s shock sacking of Jose Mourinho, said: “We're not sure yet.

“He didn't train with the team today but we'll have more of an idea tomorrow to see if we can get him back on the pitch.

“I'm not really sure of his chances, it's a case of taking it hour by hour now. So the days are obviously running out.

“It's a case of seeing how he feels in the next four hours, the next six hours, and go from there.

“I can't really answer that question until tomorrow. Everyone isn't sure.”


The situation will evoke memories of the 2019 Champions League Final when Kane declared himself fit to play in the 2-0 by Liverpool in Madrid

Mason, at his press conference today, said: “I think it was completely different, because Harry had a very long time out injured before the Champions League final.

“Like I say, I don't know if Harry is going to be available for training tomorrow, let alone the game on Sunday. But, if he is, then it's a quick turnaround.

“A week without training is not a problem for someone in Harry's condition.

“But I think we are going to have to assess it later tonight, early on tomorrow morning, and see if we can get him onto the pitch.”
