Harry's back for Spurs as Tottenham look to chase down Chelsea

Mauricio Pochettino says Harry Kane will be part of the Tottenham squad for the visit of Watford on Saturday after recovering from an ankle ligament injury.

And the 23-year-old looks on track to come back sooner rather than later, with Spurs announcing on Friday that he has resumed work on the training pitch.

Graham Roberts claims that Tottenham's Harry Kane is the best striker in the United Kingdom and has urged him to go win the Premier League golden boot. "If you compare us in the last few seasons with another team, maybe below us, you start to realise the job we have done here". It's great news for us to have the possibility for Harry to count again. "But he's a special player, he tries to push himself a lot". The good news is he is back.

"What Harry means for the team is a massive boost for us and it's fantastic news", the coach added. He's always in front of you, pushing you to try to play and score goals.

There could be a surprise selection further back in the team, with young goalkeeper Pau Lopez set for a first-team berth after Michel Vorm suffered knee damage against Swansea City on Wednesday.

It means that 22-year-old Lopez, a Spain under-21 global on loan from Espanyol, could feature against Watford as Spurs bid to be crowned champions of England for the first time since 1961.

With Chelsea playing Bournemouth away in Saturday's late kick-off, victory for Tottenham over Watford would see them cut the gap at the top to four points. "He is here because we believe in him and if Michael Vorm is not ready he is a keeper who can cope".

"Now it's up to them (Chelsea) to win the league". If they don't win the Premier League, it will be tough for them to accept.

"In football things change, but we have a project with the president of the club and I want to see it through to the end".

Kane will be hoping to play a role in the weekend's fixture against Watford and crank up the pressure on London rivals Chelsea, who they face in the FA Cup semi-final later in April.
