Pochettino not worried, as Kane misses Saints visit due to ankle injury

Mauricio Pochettino is weighing up his options over who to start in the central striker’s role against Southampton on Sunday.

Regular front man Harry Kane limped out of last weekend’s FA Cup tie with Millwall with an ankle injury and is sidelined for the visit of the Saints to White Hart Lane.

As preparations continue ahead of the game, Spurs manager Pochettino says he’s happy with the forward options at his disposal, but is yet to make a final call on who will play.

Asked by Spurs TV this afternoon (Friday, March 17) if he’s made a decision on his starting line-up for this weekend, the manager replied: “No, not yet. We have some doubts in the team and we need to see tomorrow at the last training session to decide the starting XI for Sunday.

“We have different options (up front) – you could see in the last game against Millwall.

“At the beginning of the season Harry got injured in the Sunderland game and we missed him for nearly two months but we played with different options – with Son, with Vincent Janssen. We used different players but we are sure that we will play well.

“Of course, Harry is a player that you will always miss but I am very happy with the squad and the players that can replace him. We are sure that we can play well, score goals and win games.”
