Harry Kane will start for Tottenham against Manchester United on Friday.

Spurs initially feared Kane would miss the rest of the season, but with the COVID-19 pandemic, the striker has had more time to recover.

Kane will have a major impact on Tottenham final nine matches of the campaign.

Jose Mourinho has admitted Harry Kane will start for Tottenham Hotspur against Manchester United on Friday.

Kane, 26, has been sidelined since January 1 as he sustained an injury during his side’s 1-0 defeat to Southampton at the St. Mary’s.

The England striker, who has now recovered from a torn hamstring, will walk straight into Spurs’ starting XI in their first Premier League match following the coronavirus enforced shutdown.

Moussa Sissoko (knee) and Son Heung-min (broken arm) are also ready to return to action after recovering from serious injuries before the lockdown.

When speaking about his team in a virtual news conference on Thursday, the former Chelsea and United boss Mourinho said: "We have little things [injuries] but we are going to wait until tomorrow [Friday, before ruling them in or out].

"Of course [Japhet] Tanganga has a stress fracture for a few months now and of course he didn't recover during this period, and we have some little problems that we have to analyse before we make a decision.

"But the ones that had the surgeries, Kane, Son and Sissoko, these three they recovered and they are ready to play.



"Kane doesn't play football for more than six months, so again he is working extremely well. I can tell you no problem he is going to start the game.


"Does harry have 90, 80, 70, 60 minutes in him? Only the game will tell us that. Is Harry on his top form? For him, I don't know. It's been around six months without a football match, but he works extremely well. He is an amazing professional and he's going to start tomorrow."


Spurs are eighth in the Premier League table and go into the match tomorrow, four points behind fifth-placed Manchester United, who are keen to close the gap on fourth-place Chelsea.
