Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane will start in Friday’s Premier League clash at home to Manchester United after a six-month absence, according to manager Jose Mourinho.
Son Heung-min and Moussa Sissoko, who, like Kane, were ruled out by serious injuries when the Premier League was suspended three months ago, are also set to face United.
The news is a big boost to Tottenham as they try to revive their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League, having slipped to eighth in
the standings, four points behind fifth-placed United and seven points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.
Kane ruptured a tendon in his hamstring on January 1 while Son broke his arm against Aston Villa in February. Midfielder Sissoko had right knee surgery in January.
“The ones that had surgeries, Kane, Son and Sissoko, have all recovered and are ready to play,” Mourinho, who will be going up against the club that sacked him last season, told a news conference held via Zoom on Thursday.
