Pochettino Expects Kane Back this Season

The injury occurred after a collision with Bournemouth goalkeeper Asmir Begovic in the first half at Dean Court.

Speaking ahead of Tottenham's clash with Swansea in the sixth round of the FA Cup on Saturday, Pochettino revealed Kane was fearless to even attempt the challenge.

"The England striker is expected to return to first team training net month".

"He's a warrior", said Pochettino. "Harry put his leg in the washing machine for the team".

Bordeaux are said to want up to €55 million (£48.5 million) for Malcom, and manager Mauricio Pochettino has personally called the 21-year-old to discuss a move to Spurs, according to RMC Sport (h/t Tom Coast at Sport Witness).

When asked if he Kane definitely ruled out of the massive clash with Chelsea on April 1, Pochettino refused to speculate.

"Now I need to be right, picking what is going to be the best for every single game when Harry is out".

Goalkeeper: The Spurs boss has used Michel Vorm throughout the previous rounds so I expect the Dutchman to get a recall with Hugo Lloris dropping out.

"We can not put a date for him to start participating in training with the team".

Spurs visit Swansea City in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup on Saturday and Pochettino said the competition had become a top priority as it represented the team's only hope of winning a trophy this season.

The Belgian has been out of action with a hamstring injury since the 2-2 draw away to Rochdale.

Harry Winks on the other will not be fit to play, with Pochettino revealing his injury is not progressing.

Malcom would add another dimension to the Tottenham attack, but it remains to be seen if Pochettino can convince him his future lies in north London. We're trying to help him to feel perfectly. "But in terms of the project I think we are doing fantastic".

Midfield: Victor Wanyama started during the win over Bournemouth last weekend but I think Eric Dier will come back in to the midfield on Saturday. Of course we are going to miss Harry because it is obvious he is one of the best.
