Harry Kane poised to return for Carabao Cup final as Tottenham rush striker back

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane is appearing increasingly likely to feature in Sunday's Carabao Cup final versus Manchester City.

The 27-year-old limped off during Spurs' 2-2 draw with Everton last Friday and was forced to sit out Ryan Mason's first match as interim manager yesterday evening as Spurs earned a 2-1 win over Southampton.

Spurs' last taste of success as a club came in the same competition that will be competing in come this weekend, having lifted the 2008 League Cup after defeating Chelsea 2-1.

To have any chance of repeating such heroics, Kane is likely to play a big part in Tottenham's hopes of securing silverware at Wembley.

Kane is searching for the first major honour of his playing career, though Spurs are very much the underdogs for this contest.

Pep Guardiola's side can no longer win the quadruple after being knocked out the FA Cup by Chelsea, but will now have their sights set on completing the treble.

The Sky Blues won't want to come up against the Premier League's top-scorer, but he is winning the race to return to action.

Mason gave little away regarding Kane's availability but he remained 'hopeful' of his talisman taking part in Sunday's showpiece event.

"With Harry it is just about taking it each day as it comes," said the interim boss.

"We know he is doing absolutely everything he can to be back out on the football pitch.

"On Wednesday he wasn’t but hopefully by the end of the week we will know about bit more about that.”
