Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino confirms Harry Kane will be fit to face Arsenal this month

Posted: 9 November 2017 Time: 12:17

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed star striker Harry Kane will be available for the north London derby against Arsenal later this month.

The forward has been forced out of the England squad ahead of the upcoming friendly internationals against Germany and Brazil after suffering an ankle injury against Crystal Palace last weekend.

There were also concerns Kane may miss the trip to the Emirates Stadium on November 18 but Pochettino has revealed their top striker will be ready to face their bitter rivals.

"Harry is OK, he's very good. He received a kick in his knee, but don't worry, he will be available in the next game," Pochettino said.

Pochettino will come up against counterpart Arsene Wenger later this month, with the Frenchman having overseen Arsenal for more than 20 years, although the Argentine was coy when asked if he saw himself matching that record at Spurs.

"My dream is to be here, to help the club achieve all the dreams we have," said Pochettino. "But I am a very spontaneous person. I'm always thinking, today, tomorrow.

"My commitment with the club and Daniel [Levy] is complete. It depends more on them [the Tottenham board] than me to be here more than 20 years.

"Tottenham is a club with a massive potential. After three and a half years we're still growing. I am so happy here. But you cannot guess what is going to happen in the future. Today my commitment is here."
