Spurs: Antonio Conte handed Harry Kane injury boost

Tottenham Hotspur have been handed a huge injury boost ahead of their Champions League meeting with Eintracht Frankfurt on Wednesday evening.

What’s the latest?

That’s according to Premierinjuries.com (via London World), who report that Harry Kane has a 75% chance of featuring in tomorrow evening’s European fixture, despite the fact the 29-year-old was withdrawn in the 1-0 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday after taking a knock to his ankle.

Speaking after the weekend’s win, the England international said of his injury: “The ankle is OK, no twist or anything, so I’m pretty sure it’s fine.”

Great news for Conte

Considering the remarkable form Kane has been in for Spurs this season, in addition to the fact that a win against Eintracht would put Antonio Conte’s side in a very strong position to go on and qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League, the news that Kane is more likely than not to be available for the fixture is undoubtedly a huge boost for the Italian.

Indeed, over his nine Premier League appearances so far in 2022/23, the £70m-rated centre-forward has been in sensational form, having already scored eight goals, provided one assist and created three big chances for his teammates, in addition to taking an average of 3.4 shots – 1.8 of which have hit the target – and making 1.9 key passes per game.

Not only do the £200k-per-week attacker’s return of eight goals rank him by far and away as Tottenham’s top goalscorer in the current campaign – with Son Heung-min second on three – but his average SofaScore match rating of 7.47 also sees the 29-year-old rank as his club’s best overall performer in the league.

Furthermore, while Kane is yet to find the back of the net over his three Champions League outings this season, the striker has still taken an average of four shots per game – the most of any Spurs player in Europe’s most prestigious club competition – proving that the 75-cap international is very much still his side’s most dangerous attacking threat.

As such, it is clear to see that the news Kane has a 75% chance of being fit to feature against Tottenham’s Bundesliga opposition on Wednesday evening is great news for Conte and his side, as, even if the Italian decides to leave the centre-forward on the bench as a precaution, the 29-year-old undoubtedly possesses the ability to change the game upon his introduction.
