Mauricio Pochettino will run late checks on Harry Kane and Jan Vertonghen as Tottenham prepare to face Fulham in the fifth round of the FA Cup.
Kane took a whack to the knee during the disappointing Europa League defeat in Gent but was quick to allay concerns of a serious injury saying he "should be fine" for the clash at Craven Cottage. However, given Tottenham’s reliance on Kane, and their recent dip in league form, Pochettino may err on the side of caution and hand Vincent Janssen his first start of the year. Vertonghen on the other hand has spent the last month sidelined with an ankle ligament injury and Sunday would be provide the ideal opportunity to gain some much-needed match fitness before the Premier League fixtures resume next weekend. Danny Rose [knee] and Erik Lamela [hip] remain out although the pair are progressing from their respective injuries. Feb 18 - 8:35 AM
