Harry Kane set to return for Tottenham but these three could miss out v Arsenal
By Emma Sanders
Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed Harry Kane will be in the Tottenham squad to face Arsenal on Sunday but Eric Lamela, Toby Alderweireld and Mousa Dembele could miss out.
Kane has not featured for Tottenham since mid September after picking up an injury during the team’s 1-0 victory against Sunderland.
Pochettino did not reveal whether the striker would start but his return to the squad will come as a huge boost for Spurs fans.

However, the manager did confirm Alderweireld will once again miss out after struggling to recover in time to face their north London rivals in the local derby.
The centre-back has not featured for five games and Spurs have not won a single game in his absence, though they have kept two clean sheets.

Dembele and Lamela are also doubts after picking up injuries during the defeat to Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday.
In Kane’s absence, Tottenham have scored just six goals and have slipped out of the Premier League’s top four after Chelsea defeated West Ham on Sunday afternoon.
They have not won in their last seven matches so the game against Arsenal will prove to be highly important for Spurs.
