Tottenham have announced their line-up for today’s North London derby against Arsenal on the clubs official twitter account.

While not a lot has changed, one name has stood out head and shoulders above the rest much to the jubilation of the Spurs faithful.
That name is none other than Harry Kane. The club’s talisman and top goalscorer for the past two seasons has been on the sidelines since sustaining a nasty injury against Sunderland back in September.
During his lay-off, Mauricio Pochettino’s side have struggled to find the net with summer signing Vincent Janssen failing to live up to the reputation that preceded him from his time in the Eredivisie.
Now without a win in six in all competitions, the return of their star striker will bring hope that the Lilywhites can reinvigorate their season with what would be a famous derby day win in a must win fixture for both sides.
Tottenham fans have expressed their delight on Twitter at the return of Kane, as well as at the omission of Dele Alli, which came as a late surprise to many ….
