'Awesome', 'Surely it's not happening?' - Tottenham fans react to shock training ground picture

By Richard Parks

Harry Kane has been pictured without a protective boot to fuel hopes he could make a stunning return for Tottenham – and fans are split on whether he should be rushed back for the weekend Premier League showdown against Chelsea.

Kane limped out of Spurs’ 4-1 win over Bournemouth a fortnight ago and was subsequently ruled out for around a month with ankle ligament damage.

The striker was pictured yesterday (Sunday) in conversation with England manager Gareth Southgate at Tottenham’s Enfield training ground without the boot he had been wearing to protect his injured ankle.

Football London correspondent Alasdair Gold uploaded the image of a relaxed-looking Kane on to his personal Twitter account and suggested that the 24-year-old could make it back for Spurs’ next match against the champions at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Spurs fans are not yet convinced that Kane is either close to recovering from what was a serious injury, or that he should be plunged straight back into the team for such a demanding fixture.

One pointed out on social media that he would not get too excited until the forward is pictured kicking a football rather than leaning on a fence.
