Confirmed: Tottenham given huge boost ahead of Swansea clash
By Tottenham correspondent Tony Hughes
Harry Kane will be restored to the Tottenham starting line-up against Swansea on Sunday after the club confirmed he is available to play.
The England international missed Thursday’s Europa League win over Fiorentina with a broken nose.
He suffered the injury in the FA Cup defeat to Crystal Palace last weekend and sat out the 3-0 win over the Serie A side, which set up a last-16 tie with Borussia Dortmund.
But Mauricio Pochettino has been given the all-clear by the Spurs medical team to play his No1 striker in the Premier League clash at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

Kane is likely to play in a protective mask for a match in which Spurs will aim to keep the pressure on Premier League leaders Leicester.

In other Tottenham team news, they are without injured trio Jan Vertonghen, Mousa Dembele and Tom Carroll, while Pochettino must decide on his full-back pairing, with Danny Rose and Kyle Walker likely to come back into the side despite impressive performances from Ben Davies and Kieran Tripper on Thursday.
Son Heung-min could be restored to the starting line-up after watching the Fiorentina win from the bench, while Ryan Mason is likely to continue in Dembele’s absence.
