Harry Kane injury: Tottenham striker in race against time to be fit for Carabao Cup final

Harry Kane injured his ankle in the draw against Everton

Tottenham striker Harry Kane is in a race against time to be fit for Sunday’s Carabao Cup final with Manchester City after he missed training on Friday.

Kane suffered an ankle injury against Everton last Friday and missed the midweek win over Southampton, with interim boss Ryan Mason unsure whether his talisman will be fit.

Mason said it will be a combined decision on whether Kane is selected and that the England captain will not risk his longer-term fitness.

“Harry is a top professional. We’re taking it hour by hour, seeing how he feels,” he said. “What we are not going to do and what Harry is not going to do is put his body on the line if he does not think it is suitable.

“We are never going to put Harry in that position, absolutely not. We will see how he is tomorrow and we can make a decision from there.

“It is combined effort. How does the player feel, what do the medics say.”
