Kane set for rapid return

Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino has predicted that Harry Kane will be able to play again in as little as three weeks.

The England international striker is recovering from the ankle injury he sustained in the early stages of last weekend's 6-0 victory against League One side Millwall in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

The 23-year-old missed ten matches earlier this season with a similar injury but Pochettino insists the current problem is not as serious.

"He is always positive, he is always talking about after the international break, three or four weeks," said the former Southampton manager.

"That is good but at the same time we need to be careful with his injury. We trust completely in our doctors and our physios to look after him in the best way and we will see.

"We hope he is available as soon as possible. That is our wish. He is very positive and if you are positive in your mind you can affect in a positive way your injury."

Spurs face Southampton on Sunday and can be backed at 7/10 to beat Pochettino's former team while Vincent Janssen, who has struggled all season for goals following his transfer to White Hart Lane last summer, is available at 11/10 to score at any time in the encounter.
