He is only a doubt at the minute, but I am sure that each and every Arsenal fan on the planet will be hoping that the Tottenham and England international striker Harry Kane does not pass the late fitness test that his manager Mauricio Pochettino revealed Kane would be having ahead of the north London derby this weekend.
The fact that this latest clash between Arsenal and Spurs is taking place early on Saturday may just have done the Gunners a huge favour, as it may come just a little too soon for the in form centre forward. As reported by Sky Sports, the Tottenham manager did not soon too confident about his star player being fit enough to start, but how much of an edge would it give us and would Arsene Wenger and the lads be able to take full advantage?
You would hope so and the fact that Kane has a good record against us, while the spuds have already shown how much they struggle without him, losing back to back games against West Ham and Man United when he was not in the team. Our local rivals have also lost their best defender Toby Alderweireld to injury and as well as weakening them at both ends of the pitch this could affect their confidence and the way they approach the derby.
If Kane is not in the starting XI of Spurs, will it prove to be the crucial factor in an Arsenal victory?
