Dean Windass has exclusively told Football FanCast that he doesn’t think Tottenham will beat Manchester City in Sunday’s Carabao Cup final, even if Harry Kane plays.
Spurs go in search of their first major trophy since winning the same competition in 2008 when they face the seven-times winners and three-times defending champions at Wembley.
But Tottenham’s chances of ending their 13-year trophy drought could rest on the fitness of their star man Kane.
The England striker has been in scintillating form throughout the season, but hobbled off against Everton on Friday with his latest ankle problem, and faces a race against time to be fit.
But Windass believes that with Manchester City out for revenge following their FA Cup exit last weekend, it’ll be too big of a task to beat Pep Guardiola’s men, who haven’t lost in the League Cup for more than four years.
“I don’t think they’ve got any chance of beating City even if Harry Kane is fit,” Windass told Football FanCast.
“Ryan Mason has got to get everybody on board. But it’s going to be a tough game against Man City, especially after them getting beaten in the semi-finals, so they’ll be wounded.
But with Jose Mourinho no longer in charge, and the squad on a clean slate, Windass made no secret as to who should be their front-three moving forward.
“I would like to see Gareth Bale get a number of games from now until the end of the season with Son and Kane upfront.
“You’ve got more chance of winning football matches with them three upfront than with them not in the team.”
