Is Harry Kane fit to feature for Tottenham in the finals against Liverpool

Lucas Moura gave Tottenham fans a reason to smile after scoring a hat trick for his side and ensure that they qualify for the finals against fellow English side Liverpool.

It was a great comeback for the Spurs team which was without some of their key players including striker Harry Kane who was out for an injury but is expected to be back an earlier indicated by the manager, Mauricio Pochttino.

Kane, who has not played since 9 April when he suffered an ankle injury, saw his side fight back from 3-0 down on aggregate against Ajax to draw 3-3 and go through to the final on away goals.

The England captain was injured during the first leg of the quarter-final tie against Manchester City after he was tackled by City’s defender Delph.

Harry Kane is hopeful he will be fit for the Champions League final. The England captain watched on as Tottenham secured their place in Madrid with a stunning comeback against Ajax.

Spurs trailed 1-0 from the first leg in north London before goals from Matthijs de Ligt and Hakim Ziyech appeared to take the tie beyond them.

But Lucas Moura scored twice early on in the second half and completed the turnaround in the 95th minute to send Spurs through to the final against Liverpool.

Kane has been struggling with an ankle problem since the first leg of the quarter-final against Manchester City but ran onto the pitch to celebrate at full-time.

Asked if he will be fit to face Liverpool, Kane told BT Sport: “Hopefully. Rehab is going well. I start straight-line running this week, that explains that run.

“We will see. So far so good. If it carries on as it is, hopefully.” “Lucas scored a hat-trick though. We beat City and beat Ajax so I will have to train even harder and prove myself to try and get in the team!”

Kane went into the dressing room at half-time and has provided an insight into Mauricio Pochettino’s instructions to his side.

“I went down there at half-time. We knew it wasn’t good enough,” he added.

“We said there are 45 minutes to give everything, we only have one more game left and don’t have to worry about being tired.

“Over the two legs, we probably didn’t play as well as hoped. Liverpool found a way against Barcelona and so did we.
