Kane out of Fiorentina clash

24 February 2016, 18:14

London - Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane will miss the Europa League tie against Fiorentina at White Hart Lane on Thursday, manager Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed.

Pochettino said both England forward Kane and Mousa Dembele would miss the last 32 second leg match against the Italian side, which takes place with the tie all square at 1-1.

Kane, north London club Spurs's leading goalscorer this season, injured his nose during last weekend's FA Cup defeat by Crystal Palace.

But he should be fit for Sunday's Premier League match at home to Swansea, where Tottenham, currently second in the table, will look to continue their bid for a first English title since their double-winning season of 1960/61.

However, Dembele could be out for as long as two weeks with the groin strain that forced him off against Palace.

Commenting on Kane during his pre-match press conference on Wednesday, Pochettino said: "We expect and hope he will be available on Sunday. Today he wasn't here as he is seeing a specialist about his nose."

But the manager added that both goalkeeper Hugo Lloris (shoulder) and winger Erik Lamela (illness), were now available to face Fiorentina.
