Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is confident Harry Kane will be available for England duty next week amid injury concerns.

Kane received lengthy treatment in the first half of Spurs’ 1-0 win over Crystal Palace at Wembley this afternoon after a challenge from Timothy Fosu-Mensah and was subbed with 15 minutes left to play.

The Tottenham top scorer also missed his side’s clash with Manchester United last week with a minor injury before playing 80 minutes midweek in a 3-1 Champions League win over Real Madrid.

However, Pochettino says England boss Gareth Southgate is likely to have Kane available for selection, with the national team set to play two glamour friendlies against Germany and Brazil next week.

Pochettino said: “After 75 minutes we wanted to protect him, the last game against Real Madrid in the conditions that he played and it was such an emotional game.

“It is better to avoid a risk and he I think he is ok I am sure that he is going to make the national team.

“For us we are focussed on our opponents and our interests and for the national team I understand completely what they want and need.

“The most important thing is that the England national team or whatever country will understand the situation of our players and they will help them to be fit for the Christmas period.

“You just have to try to have a good relationship with the national teams and explain the situation and hope they understand.”

The Tottenham manager also said midfielder Harry Winks was likely to be available for England but nothing would be certain until the player had be examined by medical staff.

The 21-year-old, who made his England debut last month against Lithuania, was taken off at half time by Pochettino after he rolled his ankle in the first period.

He added: “Harry Winks twisted his ankle in the first half and we must assess him with the medical staff.

“He is so excited to make the national team of course and I am sure that he is going to make the game.

“Now it is our medical staff to assist the player and take this decision.

“I promise I do not know, now is about our medical staff and the medical staff at the national team.”
