Harry Kane doubtful to face Arsenal?

Kane doubtful for north London derby

Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has said that Harry Kane is a potential injury doubt for the weekend's north London derby against Arsenal.

Kane has been in stellar form for Spurs this term and he has bagged 13 goals and 11 assists from just 16 appearances in all competitions.

He has had an excellent record against the Gunners with 10 goals from 11 league meetings, but he is currently nursing an injury, which could keep him out of the derby.

Speaking in a recent press conference, Mourinho acknowledged that Kane is out for the midweek Europa League clash against LASK with an injury.

He added that he is hopeful that the England international will make his return against Arsenal at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium on Sunday.

"I'm not going to tell you the nature of his injury. I think he has a good chance (against Arsenal)," He was quoted as saying by Sky Sports News.

"I don't want to lie, I don't want to hide anything in relation to is he going to play or no? I think he's going to play. My feeling is that he's going to play."

Spurs are currently top of the Premier League with 21 points. On the contrary, Arsenal are languishing in the 14th spot with just 13 points on the board.
