Spurs boss Jose Mourinho shuns mind games as he reveals Harry Kane is likely to be fit for North London derby vs Arsenal

JOSE MOURINHO shunned the mind games and revealed Harry Kane is likely to be fit for the North London derby.

Premier League leaders Tottenham host Arsenal on Sunday afternoon in their first home game with fans allowed back in.

There were fears Kane would not be available for the clash due to an unspecified injury.

Kane missed training on Wednesday and sat out of the 3-3 draw with LASK on Thursday night as a strong Spurs side were pegged back.

But Mourinho suggested the 2,000 fans inside the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday will likely be able to see their main man in action again.

Speaking after the game in Austria, the Special One resisted the urge to leave Gunners boss Mikel Arteta guessing.

Mourinho said: "I believe Harry is going to be fit. I’m not sure.

"He’s having treatment but I could be doing some bluff and pretend he’s in trouble, but he’s not and I think he’ll play [against Arsenal]."

The news will come as music to the ears of Tottenham supporters.

Kane has 13 goals and 11 assists in 16 appearances across all competitions this season as Spurs have shot to the top of the Premier League.

On top of that, he boasts an impressive record in North London derbies.

In 11 Premier League appearances against Arsenal, Kane - who was on the books with the Gunners academy as a kid - has four wins, five draws and ten goals.

And if he can continue his winning formula with Son Heung-min in attack at White Hart Lane this weekend, there is every chance he will improve that record.
