Arsenal might get a Kane boost in north London derby

Arsenal might be handed a boost in their bid to beat Tottenham in the north London derby this weekend, with news that Harry Kane skipped training.

The England captain has a chequered injury record and his fine start to the season means that if he doesn’t play the game, Arsenal might have the upper hand.

Spurs are currently top of the Premier League table and they are favourites for the north London derby on Sunday, however, Kane is a key reason why they have become favourites to win on Sunday.

The report claims that the Englishman missed the recent Spurs training and he will also not be travelling with the team for their Europa League game against LASK this Thursday, reports Sky Sports.

‘”I’m not going to tell you the nature of his injury. I think there’s a good chance [for Sunday], I don’t want to lie, I don’t want to hide anything in relation to ‘Oh is he going to play or not’. I think he’s going to play, that’s my feeling.”‘ Mourinho said.

Arsenal has been struggling for form in recent games and their game against the Lilywhites is a must-win for them.

They will hope that Kane isn’t fit enough to start, however, regardless of the England striker’s availability, Arsenal has to win that game.

Kane has scored 7 goals and provided 9 assists in the Premier League alone, and it will be smart for Arsenal to have a plan to stop him regardless of the current update.

      Utter cockwombles it’s Jose playing the game seriously I can’t actually believe you have even printed This talk about clutching at straws surely you want to beat their best team

    The result will be in favour of the enemy. Kane or no Kane, we must not lose

    Must we be waiting for the inability of a star player of a Club to raise our hope of winning games?. We have beaten Spurs before with Harry Kane, so we should just do our homework and prepare well for the Match.

    He’s not playing tonight but will be playing Sunday.
    Anyway, the two danger men are Ndombele and Son, not Kane.

    How we have fallen! Hoping that a player isn’t in the squad to boost our chances of winning…..especially with regards to Spurs!

    This is the exact weak mentality everyone mentions when talking about Arsenal from an external perspective.

    Its funny but this game probably means a lot more for Arsenal than Spurs. With playing twice a week and games against Liverpool and Leicester coming up Kane can’t play every game anyway. What would make it interesting was if Vinicius was fit to play. He’s looked good in Europe but whether that translates to the premier league is anyone’s guess. What you can guarantee is whatever the Spurs side is it will be organised, disciplined and have a game plan.

    Any chance Son gets poisoned by some kimchi and misses the game too?
